If you’ve been to a wedding recently, or even just on Pinterest, you may have noticed that champagne/specialty cocktail walls are all the rage! While these statement pieces are super popular, they have limitless options when it comes to practicality and design. Below are 7 ways to incorporate this trend into your next wedding or event.
1. Seating Chart
One of the most popular uses of the champagne wall is to use at as the seating chart. Not only does this enable guests to find their seats in a fun way, but they are also welcomed immediately with a drink! If you want to take it one step further, you can fill the glasses with your custom cocktail, or fill each glass with that guest’s favorite cocktail! You can personalize it as much or as little as you would like, and it gives your guests a warm welcome to your reception.
2. Cocktail Hour
Lots of couples like to use champagne walls to welcome guests to their cocktail hour, and this creates a more casual atmosphere, as guests can just grab a glass off the wall and mingle. The champagne wall at cocktail hour also acts as a great décor element and is even a great backdrop for photos; just make sure your guests use your wedding hashtag when sharing!
3. Bring the Outside In
When your champagne wall is decorated with greenery or floral accents, it’s the perfect way to bring the outside in! You can create a romantic garden vibe, without the stress of worrying about bad weather or creating a rain contingency plan.
4. Bar backdrop
Whether it’s at cocktail hour, the reception, or both, placing a champagne wall behind the bar creates a stunning and inviting visual. The champagne wall also decreases wait times at the bar, as the bartender can just grab a glass off the wall, which makes it easier for your guests to get back on the dance floor to continue celebrating!
