Quirky Lemon Yellow
A vintage yellow-themed bar set-up rendered just the right touch of odd by bartenders in matching yellow suspenders and spectacles for comic effect. On offer were traditional wine and champagne glasses while one self-serve section was devoted entirely to a wide range of beers to go with a delicious brunch.

The bar on the Horizon
The Tirtha Bridal, one of the most elegant wedding venues in Bali is where you’ll find this exquisite bar, backlit in translucent cerulean hues, seeming to hover magically on the edge of an infinity pool, framed by Hampton lanterns, the Indian Ocean in the backdrop.
The Ultimate Chill
Unusual and dramatic, the bar sculpted from crystal clear ice with ice sculptures adorning it is the perfect way to create a spectacular, unforgettable set-up. Sit back and relax as you watch your guests get really, really chilled out.
The Moveable Feast
Guaranteed to raise a smile, gracious hostesses turn into strolling tables laden with glasses of wine or champagne.
You can imagine it now – a neon lit bar against the dark sky, row after row of neon shot glasses bright with interesting beverages and your guests standing around, radiant in fluorescent clothing! Everything will be illuminated at your neon-themed sangeet!

Throw a street party like they do in Brazil or Venice or any place famous for its carnivals. Your carnival- themed bar can be set up for a wild mehndi function like this one at the JW Marriott Phuket. All you need are some open lawns for the crazy dancing, mad-costumes optional and smaller tables set up so your guests can put their drinks down when it’s time to throw their hands in the air!

Chilling in the backyard
All you want is for everyone to relax. This works very well at a farmhouse wedding – opt for an easy, conversation-friendly backyard bar set up with tubs stocked high with ice and beers and white wine sitting in the ice, waiting to be picked up by guests as they enjoy the lazy evening.
