Put Your Signature On It

One way you can add a personal touch to your wedding is by creating and/or serving a signature drink. A great way to tie in a signature drink is by choosing one that matches your wedding's color scheme/theme and creating a fun and delicious name to reflect the couple's personal style. A bonus tip for couples looking to save money on the drink tab: rather than splurge on the full open bar package, choose instead to serve only beer, wine, champagne, and a signature drink.

Check out a few yummy recipe's that I came across...
