No matter how much time you spend meticulously planning every minute of your wedding day, there is always a chance something could go wrong! As event planners, we try to have all the tools on hand to solve (almost) any unforeseeable crisis that could pop up. This is where the Wedding Day Emergency Kit comes in! We recommend delegating the emergency kit to your Maid of Honor or another close friend so you will have everything you might possibly need on hand if an issue arises (which we hope it won’t!). By planning ahead for the unexpected, you can help alleviate some of the stress of your big day. Here are our must haves for your kit:
With any celebration, a signature cocktail is a great way to add a personal touch reflecting the personality of the guest(s) of honor or even a play on the theme. If something doesn't come immediately to mind, here are tips to help you coming up something something special!
1. Use local cocktails from one of your favorite places to travel
For couples with a case of wanderlust, you can make your signature cocktails unique and memorable by using cocktails from some of your favorite places that you and your spouse have traveled! This is a great way to also introduce you guests to some delicious cocktails they may have never been able to try before. Some of our favorites are a refreshing Caipirinha from Brazil or some yummy Red Sangria from Spain!
2. Use unique glassware for your cocktails
Rather than using typical glassware for your signature cocktails, try mixing things up with some unique glassware! For a more vintage feel try using mismatched antique glassware from local antique shops to give each of your guests a more unique experience. Even better, let them keep the glass at the end of your wedding to help them remember your special day!
