When it comes to your wedding day, the goal is typically to create an event that is reflective of both parties' beliefs, traditions, and personalities. Choosing the venue, flowers, catering, and every other element of the wedding day is a chance to make a decision together as a couple that satisfies both the bride and groom's likes and wants for their nuptials. Sometimes the easiest ways to incorporate the personalities of the couple are with small details, and the culmination of these small details can ultimately create an event that newlyweds will look upon with pride and guests will ultimately enjoy. One simple way to add a custom element and provide personality on the wedding day is with unique drink stirrers. 

Some couples choose to emblazon wooden drink stirrers with their monogram, wedding hashtag or date, names, or a simple "cheers," while others choose to add flags reading, "But first, Champagne!" or the location of their celebration and wedding date. Disco balls and other fun items on top of stirrers are great for a themed after-party and sprigs of lavender or other herbs are ideal for outdoor garden nuptials. Brides and grooms hosting destination weddings in tropical settings can even get creative by adding seashells to a stick, those with a sweet tooth can provide rock candy drink stirrers, and other couples may choose to add a decorative decal to straws!
