4 Delicious and Boozy Wedding Trends That Will Make Your Guests Swoon

Drip cakes FTW.

By Danielle Tullo, Cosmopolitan

Sure, your wedding gown is important, but frankly, your guests will probably remember the food and booze you serve on your big day more than the shade of white you wear. 
But before you stress over the price of bartenders or begin calling every bakery around, check out Pinterest's 2017 Wedding Report. The social-media site looked at what brides-to-be are saving to their ~dream wedding~ boards and found four tasty trends that'll inspire you to recreate Pinterest-perfect weddings IRL.

Brunch Weddings

If you love brunch as much as any Millennial woman, use your big day as an excuse to host your most awesome one yet. According to Pinterest's report, the search term "brunch weddings" is up 35 percent from 2016. The creative alternative to the traditional cocktail-hour-and-dinner party features espresso shots, waffle cakes, and mimosa bars.

Drip Cakes

If your wedding cake isn't a drip cake, is it even a cake? The dessert trend is all over Instagram and Pinterest, with searches up 437 percent from last year. There's something insanely sexy about a cake with ganache dripping down the side of it, after all.

DIY Drink Bars

Bartenders and open bars can be extremely expensive. The alternative? DIY drink bars, searches for which increased by 50 percent on Pinterest in the past year. The idea behind these bars is to create something beautiful — while letting guests serve themselves your signature cocktail.

They're also highly photogenic, which is always an added benefit:

Amped-Up Cocktail Hour

Cocktail hour as you know it — with passed hors d'oeuvres and drinks you have to order at the bar — is so 2016. This wedding season, couples are curating food-and-drink pairings for their guests. With "amped-up cocktail hour" searches up 60 percent, you might find yourself snacking on mini rum-and-Cokes with fried-chicken bites, or sliders paired with beer shots, at your next bash.
