Spring Wedding Drink Station Inspiration

We suggest filling a couple of glass drink dispensers with some lovely fruity cocktails, flavoured water or lemonade. This will mean your guests can help themselves to refreshments whenever they fancy. Display mason jars or glasses with striped straws for a fun touch. You could offer the younger guests milkshakes or soft drinks with colourful straws.

Slates or blackboard signs are a stylish way of letting your guests know what you’re serving. We also love the idea of displaying your glass drink dispensers on wooden crates. This will look fab if you’re having a rustic or country barn wedding theme.

Are you dreaming of an elegant vintage affair? Then opt for an antique dresser or vintage table to display your wedding drink station. It will immediately set the scene and will tie your theme in with your venue. We suggest serving an array of old-fashioned cocktails to really transport your guests to a bygone era.

If you want something simple yet stylish, why not just display cocktails on an antique gold tray? This is a great option if you’re having an intimate celebration and it can work both indoors or outdoors.

Blooms, foliage and greenery can effortlessly transform any bar or drink station. Hang a garland across the front of your bar area and it’ll instantly look beautiful. If you’re a fan of keeping up with the latest wedding trends, you’ll know that greenery is predicted to be big news for 2017, so this is the perfect match for your wedding drink station.

We’re huge fan of metallic bar carts here at The Wedding Of My Dreams, and we think you will be too! This is a stylish alternative to a traditional drink station and it’s seriously on-trend. You can opt for a modern style or a vintage bar cart with a dash of Gatsby glamour. Consider decorating it with tea-lights, candle sticks or vases brimming with flowers.

Use a variety of mismatched frames to let your guests know about your drink station and what you’re serving. A bar menu will also save your guests asking lots of questions. Why not choose two signature cocktails that you and your parter enjoy, and write it on a blackboard sign?

There are so many ways to create and decorate a wedding drink station. It’s easy to style one so that it fits in with your colour scheme or wedding theme.

Winter weddings are all about being warm, cosy and suitably festive. What better way to decorate your wedding venue than with a Winter drinks station?

Drinks Stations For Winter Weddings

This latest (and possibly tastiest) trend has taken the wedding world by storm and it seems that couples are loving these yummy treats. Summer saw the introduction of homemade lemonade dispensers and fruity cocktail bars. However, we’re looking at drink stations that are just perfect for your Winter celebration.

Hot Cocoa Station

DIY hot cocoa stations are a wonderful addition for Winter weddings. Display mason jars brimming with mini marshmallows and hot chocolate powder on a table. You could use a chest of drawers or a bookcase to serve your hot chocolate drinks. Include shots of caramel, vanilla and white chocolate sauce for a truly tasty experience. Your guests will love this idea, especially when it gets chilly in the cold Winter evenings.

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a must-have at any festive wedding. A drink station dedicated to serving mulled wine will look fabulous decorated with fir wreaths, pine cones and cinnamon sticks wrapped with ribbon. You could fill drink dispensers with hot mulled wine so that guests can serve themselves, but it might be asking a member of staff to check it’s all working okay during the reception.

Time For A Brew

Sometimes all you need on a cold Winter’s night is a cup of tea or coffee – and your guests will definitely appreciate it! It’s often at the end of the evening that people start craving a cuppa, but it’s easy to incorporate it into your big day while still looking chic. Hang a mixture of vintage cups on a wooden pallet or wooden shelves. Provide jars of teabags and coffee, along with jugs of milk and boiling water. Include a few mason jars full of biscuits and festive delights to go with the drinks.

Christmas Cocktails

Winter weddings are never complete without a few Christmas-inspired cocktails. Create a cute cocktail station that your guests can help themselves to. It’s best to choose two signature drinks: the bride’s favourite cocktail and the groom’s favourite cocktail. This is a very classy way of making sure your guests stay hydrated while feeling festive. Snowballs, Eggnog and mulled cider are very delicious additions.

We love the idea of a drinks station for your welcome drinks. If your venue allows or you’re having a marquee wedding why not let your guests serve themselves to their refreshments. These can be set up in drinks dispensers with mason jars and straws for a fun and relaxed wedding.

You guests will spend a lot of time sitting down for their meal and listening to speeches. It is important to ensure this room is decorated to perfection and should probably be the focus of your decorations. For a WOW factor as guests enter the room we just love hanging lanterns, or perhaps bunting or string lights.

Backdrop for Top Table

Your guests will face the top table when listening to speeches and your photographer will get many photos of you sitting here. It is important to not only decorate the table but think about the backdrop. Backdrops can be created in a number of ways, for crafty DIY style weddings how about creating a ribbon backdrop or our personal favourite a flower wall behind the bride and grooms table.

Little Extras

Extra touches such as flowers and pampering baskets in the ladies toilets can be a lovely touch.

Outside for Summer Evenings
