How to stock your wedding bar cart for style and function

A well-stocked wedding cart can be a unique and memorable addition to your big day! You can decorate and use your cart to accent your theme and decorations.

For a formal wedding, servers can push champagne carts to guests. Your reception will feel elegant and stylish.

Leave carts at various places in the venue for guests to grab their own drinks if you are planning a laid-back wedding. You’ll save money by skipping on bartenders!

Totally Promotional has a fantastic line of custom wedding products that will add sophistication to your wedding bar cart. Keep reading for great ideas to prep your bar cart on wheels!

What should I put on my bar cart?

Mobile bar carts can beautifully accommodate punch, liquor bottles for mixed drinks, premixed drinks and beer. Add your very own favorite drinks to show your personal taste or mix up a special cocktail you both love!

A handwritten menu of drinks on the cart will add an elegant touch and keep your guests informed.

Ice buckets are important to chill drinks and are available in various sizes. A plain bucket can look out of place; choose a style that fits the theme of your cart and wedding!

Include other drink options like pop or juice to accommodate young guests and adults who prefer non-alcoholic beverages. Yummy mocktail recipes are plentiful online. Save money and time with a big bowl of non-alcoholic punch!

Don’t forget to include cocktail stirrers, spoons or shaker bottles to your cart for mixing drinks!

Spruce up your bar cart on wheels!

Decorate your cart by draping it in garland, fairy lights or flowers. Vintage décor, bouquets, candles and personalized products will look right at home on the shelves of your wedding cart. Here are a few other decorating items to add:

  • Balloons
  • Ivy
  • Lace
  • Signage

Choose a colorful bag or a neutral option to go with your theme. We have bags with and without handles that look great on wedding bar carts! Keep your theme consistent by using the same design on your treat bags and wedding favors.

Alternative options for your wedding cart

Your wedding cart doesn’t have to be exclusively used for drinks. Create a popular candy buffet. Here are some tips.

Wedding candy carts are super simple and inexpensive to put together! Grab some mason jars and fill them with your favorite dollar store candies. Guests can scoop them into treat bags and enjoy them at their tables.

Dessert bar carts can be created by adding awesome treats such as specialty cupcakes and ice cream sundaes! Make sure you plan accordingly for any desserts that need chilled.

Brainstorm your perfect bar cart wedding 

It’s important to plan early for your wedding bar cart, just as you would for other aspects of your special day. Before you get started, create a list or sketch of your ideal wedding bar cart. Ask friends or relatives for ideas and suggestions.
