Wedding Bar Trends in 2017

No couple wants their wedding booze to be a snooze. With drink trends constantly coming and going, brides and grooms want to stay on top of the latest hits. Don’t miss these staples of the 2017 wedding bar scene.

Seasonal Produce

Millennials are entering marriagehood and bringing their health-conscious habits to the party. Cocktails with seasonal, fresh fruit and herbs have become a favorite for couples and their guests. Keep in mind that your options will vary depending on the season and location of your wedding.

Craft Cider

This trend started popping up about last year and is now starting to sink its teeth in the wedding scene. It’s a popular choice for cider-loving couples or those with a smaller booze budget. And if you’re lucky enough to live in a cider-centric city like Chicago, your options are endless.

Large Batches of Punch

This one will take you back to your high school dance days. Many couples find this to be a great opportunity to get creative with their drink, and to show guests a little bit of their personality and ingenuity. However, if you have no idea what you want to serve, ask your bartender for some ideas.

Decadent Delights

No one can resist a delicious milkshake, especially when booze is involved. Give childhood favorites, like a root beer float or an Orange Julius, a twist with flavored liqueur. If you want to get really fancy, set up an old fashioned soda fountain and allow guests to create their own concoctions.


While your bar menu should have at least one fun and festive drink, don’t forget to include a few basic options like beer and wine to accommodate guests. Let us know your ideas on creating a unique bar menu for your wedding!
