Bottoms Up



One of my favorite trends in modern (think DIY) wedding showers and receptions is the signature cocktail. Such drinks are a fun way to incorporate wedding colors into the reception while also streamlining the bar service for your celebration. This is also a great way to offer an interactive guest favor. Because who doesn’t love take-home cocktail glasses?
