There’s no denying that champagne and Pimms at weddings are popular for a reason – most people love them and they are a bit of a treat suited to a special occasion. However, 2014 is forecast to see a surge in popularity of cocktails at weddings – whether this is in the setting up of a fully functioning cocktail bar or in the creation of a wedding specific artisan cocktail that is served to your guests after the ceremony.
There are a few reasons why this is likely to be popular – they are different and offer a wide variety of looks and flavours (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) to suit pretty much all tastes. A set range of cocktails means that you can keep your bar costs down by only stocking what you need to create them.
They are traditionally colourful and so look great in the hands of your guests and on the tables, both at the time and in the photographs. You can even choose to co-ordinate the colours with your wedding colour scheme – for example, mint is one of the hottest colour trends for 2013 and the Mojito (mint and rum cocktail) is widely predicted to be chosen as a complement to this fresh green theme.
There are also a wide range of garnishes and accessories that can be chosen into your wedding colour scheme or theme – the possiblities are almost endless.
