Welcome to Weddingbee!

What kind of drinks are you planning on serving?  I might be able to think up some names if I know what flavors/colors the drinks are going to be πŸ™‚

If you already know what kind of drinks you are serving, you can try to do a play on words for what the drinks are usually called.

If you haven’t decided… you could do a lavender martini.

French Martinis are a purple color (vodka, chambord, pineapple) and I LOVE them.

Dark purple? Lavender? I was thinking something royal in terms of dark purple but Fiance said this may not apply.

lol, I should get my Fiance to answer this for you!  He’s made no less than three drinks specifically for ME! lol.  He also made up one for a friend’s wedding. 

I’ll ask him and send along any suggestions he has.  Ummmm…. how soon do you need this?  ’cause I had to take some meds for an achy back and might be too dopey to ask him tomorrow, lol.

Drop me a PM Monday if you still need a suggestion and I haven’t commented before then. πŸ™‚

There’s a restaurant that I go to all the time and they have their own signature drink that’s purple. 

They call it the Elizabeth Taylor (if you don’t know she was famous for having purple eyes).  So that could be a cute name for your purple drink if you want a more glamorous hollywood themed drink.  They use violet syrup in it.  It’s yummy πŸ˜€
