10 Sweet Wedding Cocktail Stations That Your Guests Will Love

Whether you’re having a small gathering or a super large wedding, you can’t go wrong with a chic cocktail station to serve your guests those signature wedding cocktails. It keeps everyone entertained for an hour between the ceremony and reception, plus it makes a great photo op for showing off your DIY wedding style. Dream up a few of your own favorite drinks and then create a bar setup to match the theme of your wedding. From irresistible sangria to classic mimosas, these 10 cocktail station ideas will definitely get the party started.


1. Tiki Bar: Go for a retro, mid-century vibe with this colorful cocktail setup. Bright tassels on the wall help to set the scene, while a mix of colorful barware, palm leaves and coconuts filled with garnishes complete the look. (via Oh So Beautiful Paper)

2. Mint Julep Bar: Inspired by the Kentucky Derby, this sophisticated bar cart goes wherever the party goes. It would be perfect for a sunny outdoor wedding in June, preferably somewhere near a magnolia or willow tree. (via Pizzazzerie)

3. Mimosa Bar: Keep it classy with this sweet mimosa bar, which offers up three delicious options for guests to choose from. A chalkboard sign behind the table provides an easy way to explain the setup to guests. (via Katie Kime)

4. Mixology Station: For a standard cocktail station, it’s always good to provide guests with a small mix of choices. Set up two or three liquors, several mixers and an array of cute garnishes, from sliced fruit to drink umbrellas. If you go this route, make sure to provide guests with a few sample recipes or suggestions for what they should mix. (via Sugar and Charm)

5. Pretty, Pre-made Drink Display: Showcase your style by bringing in a glamorous vintage piece — like this vanity dresser — as the centerpiece for your cocktail station. (Photo via One Love Photography)

6. Modern Champagne Bar: Perfect for an evening wedding, this glamorous bar display feels just right for keeping the party going all night. Dress up a basic table with a black sequin tablecloth, add marquee letters for modern flair and finish with gold bar accents on top for contrast. (Photo via Betsi Ewing)

7. Sangria Bar: Set up a streamlined sangria bar like this for an easy and delicious cocktail situation. This one features several carafes with white wine and red wine options (which you can have your bartender refill), and then a mix of fruit so guests can customize the flavors.

8. Bloody Mary Bar: Wherever there’s bacon, the people will follow. This amazing Bloody Mary bar has matching labels on each item for a cohesive look. (Photo via Marcie Lynn Photography)

9. Moscow Mule Bar: Stick with a single signature drink to keep it simple. Trendy copper mugs can double as favors for the wedding — just add a cute straw and a customized drink stirrer and you’re done. (Photo via Jessica Frey Photography)

10. Margarita Bar: This cocktail display would be ideal for a destination wedding or a hot summer reception. The vivid, Mexico-inspired colors feel super festive, plus margaritas are easy to make in big batches. (Photo via Danielle Moss)

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
