signature wedding cocktails

If there's anything we know about wedding planning, it's that every detail counts. Often, the more personal the details of a wedding, the better, which is why the trend in the last year for signature wedding cocktails makes total sense.

Not everyone is a fan of champagne so feeling pressured to do a champagne or prosecco reception just doesn't make sense for some couples. Champagne may be a classic, but you may as well serve something you're going to love as well! Got totally different taste in tipples to your partner? A lot of couples opt for his and hers signature cocktails, one chosen by the bride and one by the groom. Guests get to choose which they'd like, adding some fun to the reception drinks.

Whether you want to serve a signature wedding cocktail that reflects your unique style, or a thirst-quencher that complements your wedding colours, we've picked nine of our favourite wedding cocktail recipes from around the internet to get you inspired. They may also be super pretty - but that's just a side bonus to them tasting delish! Cheers!
