Your wedding day is a celebration of love; every detail should reflect your unique style and preferences as a couple. When it comes to raising a glass and toasting to your happily ever after, The Ballroom at Cardinal Hills offers a personalized and hassle-free wedding bar experience like no other. Join us as we explore how you can customize your wedding bar your way, without set-up fees or minimums, at The Ballroom.

Beverage Selection

Begin by curating a beverage selection that suits your taste and style as a couple. Consider offering a variety of options, including:

Signature Cocktails: Craft unique cocktails that reflect your love story or incorporate your favorite flavors.

Beer and Wine: Ensure you have a selection of beer and wine to cater to different preferences.

Non-Alcoholic Options: Include a range of non-alcoholic beverages, such as mocktails and soft drinks, for guests who don't drink alcohol.

Signature Drinks

Signature drinks are an excellent way to infuse your personality into the wedding bar. Create cocktails that represent your relationship, and give them names that are meaningful to you. Share the stories behind these drinks in your wedding program or on a chalkboard sign at the bar.

Craft Beer and Wine

For couples who appreciate fine beverages, consider offering a selection of craft beers and wines. Collaborate with local breweries and wineries to showcase regional flavors and support local businesses.

Determine whether you want to have an open bar, where guests can enjoy unlimited drinks, or a limited bar with a set number of drink tickets or a drink cap per guest. Your budget and guest preferences will influence this decision.

Enhance the visual appeal of your wedding bar with customized decor. Personalized signage, floral arrangements, and thematic elements can transform the bar area into a focal point of your wedding decor.

Bar Menu Cards

Create bar menu cards that list the available drinks and their descriptions. This helps guests make informed choices and adds a touch of elegance to the bar area.

Specialty Glassware

Consider using specialty glassware for certain drinks, such as mason jars for rustic-themed weddings or elegant crystal glasses for formal affairs. The choice of glassware can elevate the overall bar experience.
