Your wedding day is a time to reflect on the things you love. Many of us are partial to the invigorating aroma of a good cup of coffee, and some are quite passionate. If you’re one of the latter, you might be wondering how you can incorporate this into your wedding day.
A theme is a great way to personalise your wedding and what better way to treat your guests with a delicious beverage during the winter chill. Linda Curtis of Loving Invitations offers some suggestions to help you perk up your special day with a coffee wedding theme…
Arrange a Pop-Up Coffee Bar
Naturally, any coffee-lover will want to have delicious coffee available at their wedding. A dedicated coffee bar serving connoissieur coffee is a luxury that you and your guests will relish on the morning of your big day. Mobile coffee carts are available for hire and are perfect for serving coffee outside your ceremony or reception venue. For a really memorable coffee bar, remember to seek out a talented barista who can concoct a variety of different drinks, complete with foam art. You can further personalise your coffee bar by having the coffee served in personalised paper cups. If your reception is going to be a late night, it might be a good idea to have your coffee bar stick around for the morning after too!
The Good Stuff Makes a Perfect Wedding Favour
Coffee makes a perfect gift for your wedding guests, especially as it complements chocolate and other traditional wedding favours so well. A custom blend made from two of your favourite beans makes for a memorable wedding favour.
Serve Coffee-inspired Desserts
Coffee has a unique and delicious flavour that lends itself perfectly to the creation of confectionary and desserts. Why not serve some coffee-flavoured desserts after your reception dinner? One dessert often served at weddings is Tiramisu, a coffee-flavoured dessert which takes its name from the Italian for “pick me up.” Other possible choices include coffee cake with streusel topping, or coffee-flavoured ice-cream sundaes.
Consider Serving Speciality Teas
Not everyone loves coffee. Unthinkable we know, but it’s true. This is one reason why it’s a great idea to complement the coffee you’ll be serving with some tantalizing herbal teas. As well as being considerate of your guests who don’t drink coffee, serving a variety of tea also adds a unique vintage touch.
