Ready to make your wedding the toast of the town?


Signature Cocktails at Top Resorts

Planning a destination wedding at a luxury resort doesn’t just promise beautiful views and incredible amenities—it also offers the chance to make your big day truly special with customized wedding signature cocktails. Imagine sipping a refreshing “Sunset Love” while saying ‘I do’ on the sandy shores of a RIU resort, or toasting your future with the signature “Secrets Elixir” at a Secrets resort overlooking the sea. The opportunities for personalization are endless and these resorts include many of our favorite destination wedding spots.

At Dreams Resorts, for instance, you can go all out with a tequila tasting station featuring locally sourced selections, bringing an authentic touch to your celebration. If you’re more of a beachside cocktail person, opt for a custom rum punch made with island spices and fruits. The great thing about having a destination wedding at a luxury resort is the ability to tailor every detail to your vision, including the drinks menu.

So, whether it’s a “Dreamy Daiquiri” at Dreams or a “Majestic Mojito” at one of the Majestic Resorts, your signature cocktails will not only quench your guests’ thirst but also leave a lasting impression, making your wedding a paradise of flavors and experiences.

The Art of Pairing Cocktails and Destinations

Now that you’ve got a taste of what your wedding could be like at some of the world’s most luxurious resorts, let’s dive a bit deeper into how your destination can actually inspire your wedding drink menu. Just like your wedding decor or wedding cake table, your chosen location isn’t just a backdrop for your ceremony; it’s an entire experience that can be infused into every sip your guests take.

If you’re jetting off to the Caribbean, why not consider a “Tropical Bliss,” a mix of rum, coconut cream, and fresh pineapple juice? The vibrant flavors mirror the energetic culture and lush landscapes, allowing your guests to indulge in the very essence of the Caribbean.

Or perhaps you’re tying the knot in the romantic lands of Mexico. In that case, a “Mexican Love Affair” could be the highlight of your signature wedding cocktails—a sultry blend of tequila, lime, and a touch of spicy jalapeño for that extra kick. Or go for a classic Cadillac margarita for your Cabo minimalist elopement.

Marry your wedding destination to your drink menu to create an immersive experience that adds layers of richness to your celebration. From a “Caribbean Calypso” to a “Mexican Fiesta,” every cocktail tells a story—a tale as beautiful and unique as your love.

The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Signature Drinks

If you’re sold on the idea of incorporating signature cocktails for your wedding, but you’re still stumped on the specifics—fret not! Creating the ultimate wedding signature drinks can be as easy as one-two-sip if you keep these tips in mind:

♦ Know Your Crowd

♦ Seasonal Sensations 

Use fresh, seasonal ingredients for cocktails that not only taste divine but also capture the essence of your wedding season.

♦ Personal Touch 

Think about adding a dash of ‘you’—whether it’s the groom’s love for mint or the bride’s penchant for peaches, personalization goes a long way.

♦ Trial and Error

Don’t shy away from experimenting. In fact, make it a date night activity to test out various concoctions.
