9 Ideas for a Moody, Whiskey Bar Wedding
For a couple who is getting married in late fall and loves whiskey, a deep-hued, vintage-inspired wedding is perfect. Today we’re sharing inspiration for a moody, whiskey bar wedding.
The Perfect Venue
If you’re searching for the perfect venue for your whiskey bar wedding, look no further than your favorite drinking establishment. An old bar with brick walls, low lighting and enough space for your friends and family to gather together to celebrate your love is the perfect setting. If you can keep your guest list small (or your favorite bar has a large room for parties), this option will work.
If your favorite pub isn’t large enough to host your wedding reception, consider an old warehouse venue with a similar feel – brick walls, industrial beams and lots of character. Transform this space into the venue of your dreams with a whiskey bar set up and vintage details that add your own personality. Who says you can’t stop off at your favorite whiskey bar on your way to your reception? It’d make for a great photo opportunity.
This unique wedding theme calls for unique details to match. First up – vintage flair!
This moody, whiskey bar wedding is nothing without its vintage details. Collect your own vintage pieces, borrow from family members or rent some vintage decor from a vintage rentals company to take your theme to the next level.
Vintage decanters are perfect for displaying different makes of whiskey, bourbon and other liquor. Set up a bar with whiskey barrels or a series of vintage bar carts and cover them in greenery garlands, decanters and bottles for the guests to pour from.
Line the middle of your tables with vintage brown bottles and fill them with deep-hued florals and berries. Surround the bottles with seeded eucalyptus garlands and vintage candlestick holders for a romantic and moody feel for your centerpieces.
Fill the space with as much candlelight as you can. Navy blue, mahogany and rust colored candles and tapers lit in every area of your venue will bring out a romantic light that’s perfect for dancing the night away.
Whiskey Inspired Takeaways
Don’t forget to treat your guests at this moody, whiskey bar wedding. If you’re looking for the perfect favor, treat them to personalized whiskey glasses that they can use throughout the evening and then take home with them when they leave. Personalized with your last name or monogram, a gift like this will have them remembering your wedding day each time they use it.
This whiskey bar wedding is perfect for late autumn and has a low-key yet perfectly planned vibe – which is a wonderful way to throw a wedding.
