Cheers to Kentucky … March 12, 2010

By now, you know that we love to incorporate Kentucky into our weddings!  It is one of our favorite parts of planning!  Sometimes it is the unique “home” touch that makes a wedding feel really personable.  Incorporating Kentucky could be as simple or as lavish as you wish, and in all honesty we suggest both, depending on the couples style, personality, etc!  To make it really simple, you could offer THE Kentucky tradition … bourbon!

 

Do you know how many Bourbon Distilleries there are in Kentucky?  Well, I didn’t either … but there are SIX!  And within those six Distilleries, they produce over 50 different Bourbon labels … yes … I said over 50 different types of Bourbon!!!  Makers Mark, Jim Beam, Four Roses, Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek … just to name a few. 

So, exactly how can you use Kentucky bourbon in your wedding … here are some ideas off the top of our heads:

1.  Serve Kentucky bourbon at the reception!

2.  Bourbon balls {made with one of the listed above} as favors for the guest!  A great source for these is Old Kentucky Chocolates … tell them Jacki sent you!

3.  Welcome your guest to the Bluegrass in true Southern Hospitality style by including mini bottles of bourbon in their welcome basket!

4.  “A Shot to the Bluegreass” – have 1 special shot passed around of a Kentucky bourbon during your Toasts!

5.  The day before the wedding, host a lunch at a distillery for out-of-town guest.  This will allow all guests to feel welcomed into the Bluegrass and be able to enjoy one of the special touches that makes Kentucky so unique and beautiful!

If you are planning on including this Kentucky tradition into your wedding, please share … we love to hear all the wonderful ideas.
