If you are planning your wedding and love gin, chances are you are looking for ways to make it ‘gin-tastic’. Aside from the slightly obvious serve G&Ts to guests, here are other ways you can profess your love for gin on your big day.
Seating chart named after gins/cocktails you love
We’ve scoured Pinterest and found that one of the ways people are infusing a bit of gin into their nuptials is through seating plans. From simply naming each table after their favourite gin or gin-based cocktails to using old bottles of gin as the vase for their centre piece. As members of Craft Gin Club, we’re sure you have some empty bottles lying around.
🍸👌🏼 I wish I could take the credit for this GIN themed table plan by @emmalou_mcg but I had nothing to do with it! So awesome! 🙌🏼 Yesterday's wedding was full of fun and humour and this was just one of the many personal touches 👰🏼🎩🥂 A very cool couple who don't take themselves too seriously... and love a good gin! Congrats again #juderry 😍😍 @mcguigangerry @judezxx 😘😘
Gin Garnish Corner
We recently shared bonkers but beautiful gin garnishes with you. Well, why not have a corner cordoned off at the venue for people to try them out, it can double up as a fruit table. It’s a sure way for people to remember your big day, especially if they discover a new favourite.
Photobooths have become must-haves at weddings as it’s a fun and low budget way to capture the memories. Take the fun to the next level and props. From signs saying ‘Let the fun be-GIN’ to bottle shaped glasses. The fun is endless.
