Want to take your drink station at your reception to the next level? These wedding bar ideas will not only show off your signature cocktail, they’ll also delight your guests from the start of your celebration to your send-off. From boozy sodas and shakes to a sake bar with sushi pairings, check out our “Say Cheers” styled shoot (from our latest issue) to see three totally unique wedding bar ideas that feature signature cocktails, too!
The Crush Bar
Fans of the popular “Orange Crush” cocktail will love this wedding bar idea. Orange, grapefruit, and ginger-pear crushes are the stars of this colorful wedding bar chock-full of summertime favorites.
The Shakes & Soda Bar
Let your signature drink (like the gin milkshake, Kir Royale granita, and apricot Bellini ice pictured here) do double duty as a pre-or post-dinner snack while evoking another era with a throwback bar design. Along with the retro vibe and gin milkshake, this wedding bar idea also includes boozy sodas and creamsicles—yum!
The Sake Bar
Searching for wedding bar ideas that feature a food and beverage pairing? Cocktails are front-and-center at themed bars, but don’t be afraid to add a few edible elements as well. For this sake station, Beacon & Berkeley Events teamed up with Heirloom Catering and Event Design to offer small bites of mochi ice cream balls, dragon fruit, and sushi rolls.
