Bar attendants – Not all your guests may be into tequila drinks. So, it might be nice to have attendants to assist them with mixing one to their taste (1)—as in this lovely vineyard wedding.

Pop of color – Call attention to your tequila station with a boldly colored display. Love this red chest of drawers (2) used here!

Modern touch – Set the tone for a modern setup with a sleek and simple sign (3), surrounded by an array of fancy tequila bottles.

Rustic chic – Give your bar both a rustic look and a glam spin, using stylish glass decanters and a charming foliage arrangement on a rough wooden table (4).

Call the ‘shots’ – Pull a surprise with tequila shots served in mini clay mugs glazed the color of terra cotta (5). Or in scooped out limes and lemons, as in this real winter wedding! (7)

His and hers – Give guests a taste of your respective tequila mix faves. Set up a ‘his and hers’ drinks station, like this fabulous one from a beach wedding. (6)

Ole! – Tequila is definitely a Mexican icon. So play this up at your bar with a multi-colored runner like a serape (8). To complement your tequila bar, how great would it be to send your guests home with mini tequila wedding favors, too! Check out this post and this post for sourcing and packaging ideas.
