Signature Cocktail Ideas for your Connecticut Wedding | Fairfield & New Haven CountyIf you are in the process of planning your Connecticut wedding reception, a great idea that will add a little extra zest to your big day is to provide additional signature cocktails to your bar. A signature cocktail will not only provide a tasty alternative for your guests who are looking to enjoy a beverage and let loose on the dance floor, it also has the capability of adding some color and character to your wedding reception. You can choose a signature cocktail that matches the color scheme of your wedding, or that one that is attune with the surroundings of your wedding venue. For instance, if you are hosting your wedding reception at the Lighthouse Point in New Haven, you can choose to serve the tequila-based Ocean Mist cocktail, which should blend nicely with the atmosphere that the beach and long island sound provides.

Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering of Connecticut has hosted countless weddings throughout Fairifeld and New Haven County and beyond. To assist you on planning your wedding reception, have compiled a list of some of our most requested signature cocktails as well a couple of our personal favorites below:

Lemon Grass Ginger Martini: This is a very elegant cocktail that will allow your guests a refreshing solution to the seemingly relentless Connecticut summer heat. It is formulated with a mix of vodka, ginger liqueur, tarragon, lemongrass syrup and fresh citrus. It is great tasting and is sure to be a popular item at your reception.

Cucumber Mint Refresher: Another drink that is a powerful tool in combating the hot days of summer is this thirst-quenching, fresh-tasting cocktail! It is made up of vodka, seltzer, cucumber slices and mint sprigs over ice.

Sparkling Pomegranate Punch: This bubbly, sweet tasting cocktail involves a combination of sparkling wine, dessert wine and deep-red pomegranate juice.

Amaretto Cranberry Kiss: Amaretto and cranberry juice are mixed together to create a vibrant cocktail that tastes smooth, tart, and not too sweet.

Your wedding reception should represent your personal style and personality. A great way to showcase this is through providing a signature drink. Your signature drink has the capability to be a part of the narrative of your relationship and establish and set the tone for your wedding. Beyond adding a special alternative to your bar, another advantage to servicing a signature drink is that in most cases it will help to manage the long lines that can accumulate at the bar, since most signature cocktils are pre-mixed and are ready to serve up request.

Tips for saving money on your Connecticut Wedding – Greenwich, New Haven, Fairfield

Wedding receptions will take up a large portion of your wedding day budget and if you are not careful, you can easily exceed your allocated funds and end up in debt. The Connecticut wedding catering professionals at Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering have been providing catering services for weddings throughout Fairfield and New Haven County and beyond for almost 30 years and can provide everything you need for your Connecticut wedding reception or event party. We also understand that you will need to plan the details of your wedding within your desired budget, so we put together a list of tips that you can follow that will help you avoid falling into the red on your most important day.

Try to avoid getting married on a Saturday or Holiday weekends. The cost to reserve a wedding reception hall for a Sunday wedding is typically less expensive than a wedding that occurs on a Saturday. However, costs of travel and hotels may be higher. Wedding reception venues also have a tendency to charge more for the reservation if it is occurring during a holiday weekend. Your venue and all your supplier expenses will cost less if you hold your wedding day during the off-season which will typically occur from October through April.

Recycle and reuse your flower arrangements. You can reduce your expenses by using your wedding flowers for more than just one occasion on your wedding day. The flowers that are being utilized for your wedding ceremony, can be transferred to your wedding reception party. The bouquets that are originally dedicated to your bridesmaids during the ceremony can double as decorations at your reception. Other ways to save money on your flower arrangement is to purchase flowers that are in season and to purchase only one or two types of flowers.

Have your ceremony and reception in the same location. There are many advantages to having your wedding ceremony and reception in the same location that are beyond simply saving you money. It will be easier for you to reserve a specific date for the event. There will be no need for extra expenses such as additional flowers or transportation services. Your guests and bridal party will only be required to travel to a single location, this will help to eliminate any confusion or other factors such as traffic and inclement weather.

Limit the open bar or just have one signature drink. If your reception is going to last for five hours, you can consider limiting the bar to remain open for three hours. Another option that would allow you to cut back on the amount of money being spent purchasing alcohol is to have just one signature drink.

If you are planning on having a wedding in the near future, you can contact the wedding catering professionals at Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering with any questions or concerns you may have. We understand that your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life and we will make sure everything is perfect for you and your guests. We always do our best to enhance every event with professionalism and courtesy, while serving absolutely great tasting cuisine. Beyond creating a beautiful atmosphere and providing exquisite cuisine, at Fitzgerald’s we are intent on exceeding your expectations and bringing smiles to each of your guests faces through exceptional customer service and impeccable execution.
