A great way to cut cost and add a personalized touch to your wedding is to offer His and Hers cocktails at the wedding reception. This is a great cost cutter while still providing many drink options because you won't be offering a full liquor bar (which can add up to a pretty big bar tab). For someone who loves personalized touches at events (ME!) this is allows you to create a cute customized drink sign, share your favorite beverages with your guests and maybe even add in cute colored straws to coordinate. Here are some great His & Hers drink ideas that are sure to be a hit at your wedding.

His and Hers Wedding Drinks: Golden Groom and Blushing Bride #PreppyPlanner
One of the more common His and Hers drink selections are the golden groom and blushing bride. Martha Stewart provides great drink recipes for both of these yummy drinks.

Golden Groom
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and then add the 2 oz tequila, 1/4 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup orange juice and a splash of pomegranate juice. Shake well and divide between two highball glasses. For the final touch add an orange peel for garnish.

Blushing Bride
Run a lemon wedge around the rim of the glass and garnish with pink sugar. Next fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in 2 oz vodka and 1/2 cup pink lemonade. Shake well and pour.

Most of the time when a signature drink is offered at an event every guest will give it a try. So to help with cutting down on the wait time at the bar a customized drink sign is the perfect solution. You can find great ones already designed on Etsy or if you want a fun DIY craft project you can even make your own.

And the best way for the bride and groom to enjoy their delicious His and Hers drinks? In adorable glasses like Two of a Kind Hiball Glasses these from Kate Spade! The two of you will not be able to misplace your drinks if you have these for your wedding day.

The best tip that I can share with those who don't know what type of His & Hers drinks to serve: go with something seasonal that fits with your theme. If your favorite drink is a frozen margarita and you are hosting your reception on the beach I say go for it! However, you don't want a blender making your favorite beverage at a wedding in the mountains in January. Head over to your favorite bar and consult the bartender there on what they think would make the best His & Hers signature drinks. 

What drink would you create for your His & Hers cocktails?
