If you’re getting married, you are likely racking your brain on how to make your nuptials anything but ordinary. One great way to stand out and give your guests a unique experience? Have a fully functional bar come to you. Yes, it’s a thing.
Even better than a bar serving up your signature cocktails is a converted 1970s vintage horse trailer rolling up to your reception. Heck yes! Bliss Bar offers a mobile bar and mini-lounge experience for your guests to order a cocktail, socialize, and even take selfies before getting their dance on. Side Note: Bliss Bar’s owner and bartender Myrhiah is one of my favorite vendors to work with thanks to her calm personality (while also knowing how to get the party started a la The Black Eyed Peas).
Elevating the overall vibe and guest experience is as easy as customizing your cocktail and drink menu. With its six customizable taps and licensed bartending experts, Bliss Bar caters to any and all drink requests. You can even create your signature concoctions with your theme and taste in mind.
Need some inspo for making your cocktail hour(s) unforgettable? Check out some DIY tips on taking your wedding bar to the next level:
Theme Work Makes the Dream Work
Coordinating your bar with your wedding theme is an easy way to add flair. Match the bar’s exterior decor with the reception’s color scheme, or add some texture by incorporating fringe. If your theme is Old Hollywood, adding gold details and serving up martinis are fun ways to stay on theme. Consider adding a lounge for additional seating and change the vibe from a heartfelt ceremony to a fun reception.
PS- Bliss Bar offers add-ons to its bar packages, including furniture and rope lighting. Ya know, to set the mood for your celebration.
Give ‘Em Your Signature
Signature cocktails are a playful way to show your personality as a couple. The cocktail can be an inside joke, play off the story of how you two met, or even be a nod to your fur baby– Dirty Dog Martini, anyone? Are you two big fans of the 80s? How about a Pretty in Pink cocktail? Want to keep it simple? Feature a classic “Our Favorite Drinks” menu and serve up your go-to sips. You can switch it up by adding some lavender to your favorite Moscow Mule or smokiness to your Old Fashioned. There are no rules, and the sky is the limit, so think big! It’s your big day, after all.
Since receptions can host everyone from your sorority sisters to your grandma, it’s important to offer drink options for everyone. Mocktails are a great way to let guests who don’t drink still have a little fun. Creating an alcohol-free version of your signature drink can help all guests feel welcome, and their drinks will look like the real thing. Your tiny human guests will feel like grown-ups walking around with a faux-tini in their little hands. Another option is to serve up glass bottle sodas in different flavors or add some cupcakes and cake pops to your mobile bar for a sweet take on a bar experience.
Your reception is the perfect place to showcase your and your boo’s favorite things with your favorite people. Add some custom signs with quotes from your favorite movies around the bar. Everything from the glassware to the napkins and the toothpicks can take your bar to the next level. Bonus: The more people go to the bar, the cooler all those details become.
If you already have too much on your plate or you’re just not the creative type, you can skip the DIY and have a perfectly tailored bar menu designed for your wedding. The pros at Bliss Bar will happily take a to-do off your list and create a showstopping drink to wow your guests. For more information on Bliss Bar offerings, check out their list of services here.
