‘Tis the season for beach parties, garden parties and of course weddings!
I have attended a few this summer (as I do most summers) and I can say – with reasonable authority – that what always stands out for me, are the little extra touches.
One wedding trend that continues to gain popularity is the signature cocktail. With a little thought and some help from your event planner, caterer or bartender, you can create a cocktail for your guests that will leave them with a good taste in their mouth…pun intended.
