by Jamie Miles


One of the most fun parts of wedding planning is getting creative with the details. Even something as simple as renaming your favorite cocktail will do the trick (Rebecca-tinis, anyone?). We pulled together a few of our favorite ideas with recipes just in case you want to whip some up yourself (hint: they also make for great bridal shower cocktails!). We'll start with two cute cocktail names and recipes from our sponsor, St. Germain. Enjoy!
