A great new cool-weather trend for the caffeinated couple -and one that I'm dying to attend - is a reception coffee bar! The idea can be easily adjusted to couples' budgets. Lower budgets may serve a local roast and utilize the company's packaging customized by couples' monogram sticker. And boutique weddings may choose to work in conjunction with a local roaster to customize their blend [think season specific like Starbucks' spicy Winter blend] and create personalized packing for wedding favors.
Think of your guests standing around the guest registry, sipping their Eggnog Chai Latte. Me thinks guests' comments might just be more sentimental and their hearts more generous when it comes to that Honeymoon Fund jar at the bar!
There are other alternatives to coincide with your wedding theme such as eco-friendly or charity-minded roasts, while feeding our Northwest ethical addiction, we maintain.
While the guys' from Annabelle's [below] aren't local, they do travel. Otherwise, couple's may choose to inquire at their favorite local coffee shop and/or rent commercial grade equipment and employ their barista friends. Happy java dreaming!
