Managing the drinks at your wedding can sometimes be a nightmare. Many a couple has found themselves suddenly stuck, days before the event, and unable to work out what to do about drinks.
In this article we plan to give you some tips and ideas that should make it easy for you to put a plan together and get the most out of the drink situation. Hopefully, it should inspire you to put a systematic and workable set of ideas together to make drinks both fun and manageable on your big day.
To add a little variety to your wedding’s drinks menu, serve some non-alcoholic drinks. You’d be surprised how popular these are, because people love to have nice cold refreshing drinks that aren’t necessarily heavy with alcohol.
People will thank you for it, and you’ll become known as the wedding that had some lovely and exotic non-alcoholic drinks. You can even get the bar to serve up some mocktails. These are non-alcoholic cocktails, and they are incredibly delicious.
You don’t have to have alcohol at your wedding at all. But if you want to do one signature drink, this’ll make it fun for everyone.
Think about a drink that is close to you and your partner’s heart, and ask the bar to make it. Because you will use less alcohol to make it, you will save money. And in addition to all of that, you also ensure that you have a wedding that doesn’t rely on alcohol for everyone to have fun.
Limit your wedding to having just wine and beer, rather than spirits. Spirits cost a lot of money, and you can get some good deals on wine and beer.
Doing it this way means that you get to please most people, and also ensure that your budget is kept down. Many people are happy with wine and beer, and you don’t have to stretch your budget to accommodate those expensive spirits.
You could even ask if people can bring their own drinks. Some people are happy to bring their own bottles of wine and beer for example. Or you could go to a discount store and buy plenty of wine and beer for your event without having to rely upon what the bar would do at the venue.
It is a great way to keep costs down, and if you involve your guests in it, you also ensure that they bring drinks that they want to actually have.
Don’t forget that you don’t always have to have alcohol at a wedding. But if you do, then you can ensure that costs are down by focusing on, for example, having just wine and beer or alternatively to bring your own drinks.
Think about what your guests want, and try and accommodate them without making too much of the budget. You can have a cost-effective wedding when it comes to drinks, it just takes a bit of planning and forward thinking.
