Wedding Ideas for Coffee Lovers
Your wedding day is a time to reflect on the things you love. It’s an opportunity to share your happiness with your nearest and dearest, as you honour one of the most important decisions of your life. This makes it a perfect occasion for celebrating some of your favourite things in life. Hopefully, many of these are things your guests will enjoy too. Planning your wedding around a theme of something that’s close to your heart is a great way to make the proceedings fun, interesting, and memorable.
So, what, for example, might such a theme involve? Many of us are partial to the invigorating aroma of a good cup of coffee, and some are quite passionate. If you’re one of the latter, you might be wondering how you can incorporate your love of coffee into your wedding day. This a great way to personalise your wedding, as well as treat your guests with a delicious beverage. In this week’s blog post, we’re happy to offer some coffee-related suggestions to help you perk up your wedding!
Arrange a Pop-Up Coffee Bar
Naturally, any coffee-lover will want to have delicious coffee available at their wedding. A dedicated coffee bar serving connoissieur coffee is a luxury that you and your guests will relish on the morning of your big day. Mobile coffee carts are available for hire and are perfect for serving coffee outside your ceremony or reception venue. For a really memorable coffee bar, remember to seek out a talented barista who can concoct a variety of different drinks, complete with foam art. You can further personalise your coffee bar by having the coffee served in personalised paper cups. If your reception is going to be a late night, it might be a good idea to have your coffee bar stick around for the morning after, too!
Coffee Makes a Perfect Wedding Favour
We’ve written before about how wedding favours can add a really personal touch to your wedding. This is certainly true for those of you who enjoy cofee. There’s no shortage of exquisite coffee hampers and gifts available from specialised coffee vendors. Coffee makes a perfect gift for your wedding guests, especially as it complements chocolate and other traditional wedding favours so well. A custom blend of two different beans makes a classy and memorable wedding favour, especially when paired with a matching confection like chocolate-covered coffee beans.
Serve Coffee-inspired Desserts
Coffee has a unique and delicious flavour that lends itself perfectly to the creation of confectionary and desserts. Why not serve some coffee-flavoured desserts after your reception dinner? One dessert often served at weddings is Tiramisu, a coffee-flavoured dessert which takes its name from the Italian for “pick me up.” Other possible choices include coffee cake with streusel topping, or coffee-flavoured ice-cream sundaes. If you want to go all out, a coffee-flavoured wedding cake could make the ideal centerpiece to your coffee-themed wedding. Many traditional cake recipes can enjoy a jolt of extra flavour from a little coffee; why not ask your baker for suggestions?
Consider Serving Speciality Teas as Well
Not everyone loves coffee. Unthinkable we know, but it’s true. This is one reason that it’s a great idea to complement the coffee you’ll be serving with speciality and herbal teas. As well as being considerate of your guests who don’t drink coffee, serving a variety of tea is interesting and classy. There’s an almost endless variety of teas to choose from, made from almost anything you can think of. If you’re hiring a coffee bar, as suggested above, be sure to check whether they have a selection of tea available as well. If not, you can easily source your own tea from one of the many suppliers online or offline. Some will even help you to create a custom blend of your own!
