Family. Friends. All coming together to celebrate your happily ever after. There are few days as special as the one when you say, “I do”.
Other than seeing your Aunt Myrtle twerking at the reception—what else makes a wedding day as memorable as it is?
It’s all the personal touches.
From the flourishing custom gown, to the intricate gold embossed invitation you found on Pinterest— you and the groom make a ‘Just Married’ statement by showing off your own personal style.
The bar at the reception, or the pre-ceremony drink with your bridesmaids, are the perfect opportunity to mix up some of these refreshing, and impressive wedding day cocktails.
Cheers, and congratulations!
