Give it a twist by serving it in a different type of glass that would add up to the wedding concept, this way you will set the tone for a unique event that your guests will remember by, the little details can make a big difference.

Ask your Catering manager to work with you and come up with original ideas for flavours, colors and presentation, then give your drink the attention by adding little highlights to the décor.

Here are some tips to consider whilst creating your signature drink:

-Think about making it soft enough for all your guests to refresh, hard drinks are more soothing when paired with dinner or later in the evening

-Get inspired ny your wedding colors and theme to incorporate a personal element that your guests will identify as unique, for instance if you love a vintage style and are creating a vintage atmosphere serve a drink that will evoke that time period

-Work with what you have on location, if you are having a destination wedding in a Caribbean beach think of exotic fruits, flavors and tropical plants for décor

-Think about your favorite drink and adapt it for your wedding, if everyone knows you love beer, ask your venue or wedding planner to serve a special beer with personalized bottle tags

-Get an original flavour from the place, don’t be afraid to try something new and exciting that is still elegant and friendly

Happy Wedding Planning!

The New Cocktail for Mexican Weddings

Destination Weddings in Mexico are lovely because we have all of the mexican colors, flavors and traditions to incorporate elements and set the mood for a unique wedding.

For many years the Margarita prepared with Tequila has been the representative cocktail of a mexican destination wedding. Now the time to innovate and get creative has come and we discover a new rising cocktail to give an amazing first impression at your reception.

We are talking about the “Paloma” it’s a less dense cocktail than the margarita and it gives you plenty of room to play and create your own signature cocktail. You can prepare it with Tequila or Mezcal (trendiest mexican liquor at the moment).
