We here at Martha Stewart Weddings believe your wedding is the perfect opportunity to personalize everything. After all, it's your big day, so why wouldn't you want to make it your own from start to finish? While we love custom invitations, handwritten vows, and a carefully curated playlist of reception music, one of our favorite ways to put your mark on your big day is with delicious signature cocktails. Coming up with his and hers drinks can be a fun way to show your guests a little bit about who you are, or how you two came to be: Consider serving the drinks you like to sip while out to dinner, or the cocktails you shared on your very first date. Or maybe you both want to pick a drink that reminds you of home, or a favorite vacation. Whatever the reason behind the choice, your guests will love imbibing in a few cocktails that say a little something about you and your groom.
One of the best parts about having a signature cocktail? The name! You might choose to serve a classic margarita or an Old Fashioned, but that doesn't mean you can't give them a fun new moniker. So if you need some inspiration on what to serve and what to call it, look no further than these his and hers cocktails from real weddings. Cheers!
Henry & Henrietta

Homage to College
This couple named their signature drinks after their favorite college bars: The "Mykonos" (vodka, ouzo, thyme-infused honey, lemon, and Prosecco) and the "Landshark" (bourbon, black Assam tea, peach-vanilla reduction, lemon, and mint) were a hit with guests.

Home is Wherever I'm With You
Although this couple tied the knot in Chicago, they wanted to honor the Brooklyn neighborhood where they live together, and did so through cocktails. He chose the Park Slope Pimms, a nod to the neighborhood where they live, and she picked the Montgomery, named after their street.

Based on Personality
The grooms' drinks were not only named after them, but also after their unique personalities. Guests chose between "The Sweet Nathan," a sparkling vodka with rosemary and club soda, and "The Feisty Jesse," a whiskey ginger with lime.

Though this bride and groom served four signature cocktails, two were personal to them. Negronis and Moscow mules served as their his and her drinks, since they enjoyed those two cocktails on their first date.
