25 Signature Drink Ideas for a Fun Wedding

Signature drinks are very popular at weddings these days. It's a great opportunity to have your guests sample a drink that's your favorite and truly reflects your personality!

If you are looking for a drink for your wedding, pick one from the list below and jazz it up by giving it a personalized name.

For a recent destination wedding in Puerto Rico, the bride (last name Medrano) used "Medrosas" for sparkling and refreshing Mimosas as HER signature drink. On the other hand the groom used "Blay" Hawaiian for HIS signature drink!

Give it a more fun phrase to get your guests talking. Frame the His & Hers drinks and put them at the bar for the guests to order. Add a cute paper straw to tie it in with the rest of the wedding decor. How about some personalized napkins? Ask the experts at Mint To Be Events for more fun ideas.

For convenience we categorized the drinks based on their personality!
