Martini Bars - Make big Impression on your Guests
Martini Bars are in. So let your senses go wild and plan a martini bar wedding theme if you are planning to tie a knot in 2012. This would help you create a big impression on your guests. Martinis are never out of fashion and in 2012 they will more in demand. Therefore, having a martini bat at your wedding will set your guests in the perfect mood and make your wedding the most fascinating one.
Martinis are available in a wide range of colors and flavors. Although the most common and favorite ones still remain gin, olive and vermouth. It’s a great idea to go for a flavor or color that matches with the theme of your wedding. In this way you can add that extra glamour to your reception venue and make every guest remember this special occasion for life long.
To enjoy your signature martini experience to the fullest, have the venue or caterer set up a separate “martini bar”. Having a martini bar at your wedding will set your standards high among your guests. If you want to think in a little nontraditional way then hire a wedding planner who can design a swanky bar at your wedding venue. Choose a proper corner of the venue where your guests can gather easily for a drink. Make low lighting around that area to arouse the perfect mood in people. Use only quality “glass” … not plastic … martini glasses. Elegance is allergic to plastic!
If you have planned your reception party to run between 6 p.m. and 10 p. m. then a martini bar is a must at the venue. Make low sitting arrangements and play some slow music. Also ask your guests to dress accordingly. You can choose a color theme and decorate the venue in a subtle way. Or maybe since it’s an evening party, you can ask your guests to be dressed up either in black, blue, maroon or brown.
Prepare a lounge area around the martini bar. Your venue could have bright lighting, mostly in the reception and dining area. But make sure you bar area has low lighting. This would give a jazz club feeling to the place. You can ask your wedding decorator to arrange for stylish glassware lighting. It would add an extra glamour to the venue. Many might suggest you candles. But what you need is neon lights to make your venue look elegant.
Your wedding planners can also suggest you live music instead of recorded ones. So hire a band. And if you have a tight budget, hire a DJ. Give an extra attention to the bar counter. Give it a retro look with cut glasses on the table and cocktail napkins. Olives in cheese cubes will just be an icing on the cake. Choosing a bar tender is a tricky job. Some are natural showmen; some have learned the art to the glory of being real. Avoid acrylic or plastic plates. Instead you must go for glassware bar counter. A pyramid shape martini bar counter is the hottest trend of 2012. But you can go for other shapes in assistance with your wedding planner.
