Move over signature cocktails, you’ve got some new competition in line!

Something really fun has been happening lately and I’m admittedly thrilled to see it popping up during wedding days and the web.

Signature coffee drinks!

Truth: I do drink a lot of coffee. You could call it an addiction if you want to, so perhaps I am biased, but I can’t help but fall in love with this new trend.

Our lovely bride Briana featured signature coffee drinks from Roast Coffee here in Milwaukee at her wedding reception at the Milwaukee Art Museum and I don’t have to repeat myself when I say they created a big buzz.

Anne’s iced coffee bar via Colectivo was so buzzworthy it was drunk dry before the reception even opened. She dressed up her DIY station with adorable mint striped straws and flavored syrup pumps in vanilla, hazelnut and almond. Served along side were perfect macaroons from La Reve and gingersnaps from Colectivo. Because you can’t have a coffee break without a little sweet on the side.

We also collaborated with Ryan at Roast Coffee for our Onyx and Honey Style Shoot that was recently featured on 100 Layer Cake. “Honestly why aren’t there more coffee bars at weddings?!” Agreed.

Maybe I’m jumping the gun, as it is still August, but nights have been getting noticeably cooler lately. Coffee bars would be the perfect addition to add some coziness to perhaps our cooler season weddings.

If coffee isn’t your cup of tea, then perhaps do a non-caffeinated hot chocolate beverage along the side or a creamy chai latte.

Coffee bars come in handy for those guests who don’t drink alcohol and guests don’t need an ID to enjoy.

The only downside I can see is picking your signature flavor…and treat…and cup…

If I had it my way, I’d have my Skim Miel Latte served in a gold rimmed Fire King cup with a butter cookie from C. Adams Bakery on the side.

…But that’s just me… and I’m already getting way ahead of myself.
