Have you considered having a signature cocktail at your reception? Not only is it a budget-friendly idea, but it's also a fun way to personalize your wedding—whether it's a play on your names, a local favorite, or a lively libation that fits the feel of your wedding to a T. While checking out what our couples have served at their cocktail hours, I realized that there are two stand-outs couples seem to like most: the dark 'n' stormy and the kir royale. Even so, no two were exactly the same. With drinkware, garnishes, and fun accents like stir sticks and cocktail napkins, you can really put your own spin on it.
