Just like every couple has their signature style, every couple should have its signature cocktail, a unique and delicious blend of both bride and groom, specific to their personality and their wedding. Not only is designing your signature drink a fun activity to do with your groom, but it will leave your guests with something to remember your wedding by. It simply adds one more distinctive touch to your big day. If you’re bubbly and your groom packs a little punch, opt for a champagne cocktail with bold flavors like orange, pineapple, and strawberry . If you're a traditional Southern duo, try a Charleston favorite like Firefly sweet tea vodka mixed with fresh lemonade or iced tea. You can even have a custom sangria bar, allowing your guests to put their own flair on your favorite drink. Whatever you choose, all of your guests will surely be out on the dance floor after they sample your signature wedding cocktail. The options are endless, so drink up and be married!
Attention all Pure Luxe Brides! These hot wedding registry trends definitely have our attention and we think you'll love them too. It's Fabulous Friday here and we encourage you to celebrate by choosing which of these fabulous items you'd love to add to your registry! Thanks to The Knot's Lauren Kay for the inspiration!
Register for a timeless and classic china pattern that will remain in style for as long as you are married.. forever! It's easy to mix and match classic china with fun accent plates and colors so why not plan for the long haul with a classic set? Timeless does NOT have to mean boring though, people! Look for metallic and neutral colors - you know we love anything gold! We suggest you register for twelve place settings; that way, you have enough for a dinner party and if your pattern happens to get discontinued, at least you'll have a full set plus more!
Gold, gold and more gold! Register for some gold flatware to accompany your new beautifully, patterned gold china. Add a little glamor to your dining room table! Nowadays, many gold flatware sets are dishwasher safe so they don't just have to be for dinner parties. You can use them every morning to glam up that bowl of Cheerios!
Whether you love to host or prefer cuddling up on the couch with a martini, cocktail essentials should be added to your registry! Glasses are at the top of any cocktail essentials list, follow by a bar set. Bar sets typically contain items such as shakers, jiggers, bottle openers and tongs. Appetizer plates, linens and even a bar cart would complete any cocktail essentials set! Oh, and don't forget to fully stock the bar!
Due to online registries, our grooms are getting more in on the registration action. Barbeques, appliances and more are at the top of every groom's list. However, what better way to make both the groom and bride happy than with hobby items? Register for things you two can do together outside of your home - tents and fitness equipment are perfect for this! Get matching tennis rackets so you can dominate the court together, or buy climate-controlled sleeping bags for that snuggly camping trip you've been planning next fall.
Not only should couples register for the wedding, but let's not forget the honeymoon! Luggage sets are the perfect item for every couple, for any honeymoon, to anywhere. Luggage lasts a lot time too so you know you'll get very good use out of it not only now, but also in the future. Look for lightweight pieces, carry-ons and duffles, as well as garment bags depending on your needs. Only register for the pieces you know you'll use!
This day in age, a lot of couples are already living together before they tie the knot. If you already have everything you need, create a charity registry where guests can make donations in lieu of gifts. Check out sites like CrowdRise where you can even set a fundraising goal for you and your guests to reach. Another option includes Just Give that helps couples create charitable wedding favors supporting an organization close to both your hearts.
