What’s a wedding without a bar? They bring the vibe, the dance moves, and free-flowing conversations. They also bring decadent drinks to enjoy while complementing your overall decor and style. Getting married close to nature? Setup a rustic bar with pallets, vines, and hanging florals. Looking for a trending theme? Hire a mobile bar in a classic Italian truck, custom caravan, ice cream tricycle, or even a refurbished horse-trailer (we’ve seen it all).
Whether bursting with booze or non-alcoholic masterpieces, a wedding bar is an absolute must! That’s also the wonderful thing about wedding bars – you’re not restricted to alcohol only. Here are our wedding planners’ top five wedding bar ideas to help you make up your mind!
Bourbon Bar For The Boys
Whether considered a classic or cliché, there’s no denying that the boys will go mad for a fully stocked bourbon bar! Make sure it’s full to the brim with interesting brands for tasters and small talk, as well as the crowd favourites. You could also mix things up by including a selection of whiskeys too as a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Throw in some Old Fashioneds and Manhattans, and it’ll be a winner with the ladies too!
Pro tip: Nothing goes better with bourbon and whiskey than cigars! Why not get a small cigar bar going too?
Beer On Tap Bar
There’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot day – and who doesn’t like beer? Whether your only bar or an exciting addition, a self-service DIY bar will be irresistible. Beer is a great drink to get people feeling loose (but not too loose!), and being able to pour your own on tap all night will get people talking and posing all night! You could have a more rustic, outdoorsy look with raw wood pallets or a more elegant style set up inside.
Create Your Own Cocktails
Cocktails are the perfect crowd-pleaser for a sunny day; they look good and taste even better! They add a splash of colour and creativity – especially when you can craft unique creations yourself. Choose a base beverage, like the trending gin and tonic, and offer various common and interesting garnishes. Think peppercorns, strawberries, blueberries, thyme, cinnamon sticks, lavender, star anise, and so on. You guests can mix, match, and compare all day long!
Modern Mimosa Bar
Mimosas are the ultimate drink for the modern bride! If you’d like to glam up your wedding, why not put together a sleek and stylish mimosa bar for the girls. And don’t settle for the standard – get pre-cut large, hollow ice blocks to hold your champagne and fruit, rather than bowls or buckets. Much like the cocktail idea, your guests can mix and match their mimosa garnishes!
I doubt you’ll find one guest who isn’t a sucker for coffee! A comprehensive coffee bar is a perfect addition to your wedding for any sober cobra guests – or the ideal statement piece for a religious celebration. You could hire a classic, vintage coffee van or a simple stall for that real-feel. Make sure to include several different types and strengths of coffee to keep it interesting, as well as various spices, sugars, and milks.
