A Signature Drink

II love the idea of a signature cocktail to greet guests as they arrive at your wedding reception. Guests can be treated to the ‘Madison Martini’ or the ‘Sam Sangria’ There are so many gorgeous cocktails around nowadays which make this really easy.

It’s a nice touch to tie the cocktail in with the colours of your wedding too – a garden wedding with bridesmaids in green and brown accents might feature a mint cooler and a mocha martini.

You might choose to put your cocktail in a glass decanter surrounded by clear crystal glasses post ceremony. With some cupcakes it will be a sweet surprise for your guests. Otherwise singular bottles of cocktails like Bellinis or piccolos of champagne served from tubs filled with ice with miniature straws will add to the celebratory feel.

Winter brides can cater the cocktails for the cold and serve hot chocolate with liqueur or hot mulled cider. Summer brides may serve strawberry margaritas with crushed ice to make a granita style drink.

Whatever the season- consider a beautiful cocktail to add to your celebration!

Two of my favourite magazines have been released in all their glory.

The Real Weddings annual “Real Weddings Style” is a wealth of inspiration for any bride with features of different themes and advice on colour schemes. I particularly loved the empire lined Luci Di Bella gown in the soft blush colour. Themes of Morocco, beach & all white are put together in a delicious way!

Wedding Style Guide featured some glorious bridesmaids gowns this issue- my favourites are from Harvey & Ella, fifties inspired mint green gowns with full skirts. It also features a gorgeous rustic style wedding which uses red apples as a feature.

With all the shots of the Sex & The City movie floating around I couldn’t bear to pass this one up! Carrie in her (what is rumoured to be a dream) wedding dress! Although many have hated her headpiece I think it’s very Carrie – very wild. Bridesmaids Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha were in blue, black and red respectively. I can’t wait to see how this scene plays out!

Abbey’s Wedding Update

Abbey is less than a few weeks out from her wedding date (last time I wrote how much time she has left I got a very panicked email in my inbox!) Abbey is well on her way to walking down the aisle!

Straying from her original country wedding theme she picked up some ‘mango’ coloured bridesmaids dresses, she’s ordered her ring cushion and has decided to ask for money for the new carport instead of gifts- so the gift box is also ordered. Favours will be cookies wrapped in bags with raffia. She’s got her candles and table centrepieces and is almost at the stage of just having the last minute details to take care of.

Unfortunately this is the time family and strange guests can rear their ugly head and Abbey is finding that difficult to deal with! Guests pulling out of doing parts of the wedding (poor Abbey needs to find a hairdresser!) and guests making crazy requests!

Breathe in, Breathe Out. Only a little while to go Abbey!
