As big fans of the wedding drinks coaster, we're about to share some of our favourite coaster designs with you. Prepare to be inspired with these nine beautiful examples of Peppermint Press wedding drinks coaters.

Wedding coasters: a rewarding final touch 

If you're at the point in your wedding planning process where you're pondering over the smaller details, that's a great sign! You've got the majority of the work out of the way, and the wedding countdown is on. 

One of the great parts about this stage - where you're focusing on decoration and detail - is that it's super fun and extremely rewarding. Watching your wedding plans come together seamlessly is exciting, and making final touches to your decor can truly make all the difference.

It is at this point that wedding drinks coasters might be brought to your attention. In this article, we're going to show you just how much difference a fun little wedding coaster can make to your tables, show you some beautiful examples and help you decide whether the wedding coaster is an "I do" for you and your big event.

 

What are wedding drinks coasters?

Without further ado, wedding drinks coasters are small, flat objects that are placed under glasses or cups to protect the surface of tables or countertops from moisture or heat. Let's face it, they're not too different from the coasters you'd have at home, at a bar or perhaps a pub. The only difference is, at your wedding, they're a little less about practicality and more about appeal. They're also entirely yours to bring to life.

As a result, wedding coasters can also serve as decorative elements and personalised keepsakes for wedding guests. Customised with designs, monograms, colours or personalised messages to match the wedding theme, they're handy little details that pull together your table decoration. 

Typically used during the wedding reception, or even at cocktail hour, coasters can also be used in place of wedding favours for guests, who can take them home as a memento of the special day.
