When arriving at your wedding reception after the ceremony, most couples have a drinks reception. Traditionally this is something like champagne or bucks fizz, but why stick with tradition?! Welcome your guests in style with these fun drinks ideas!
Help Yourself Beverage Dispensers
Mix up a Pimms, Sangria or concoct your own signature punch in these cute beverage dispensers, then lay out glasses and let your guests help themselves. These are really popular right now and you can pick them up in lots of homeware shops. This Kilner version is from Lakeland.
Please can I get married again so I can have these at my wedding?! These are not just any ice pops, they are Bellini ice pops. What more could you want on a hot, sunny day (or a cold rainy one, we are in the UK…) than a prosseco and peach cocktail, in this fun pink packaging. These would be gorgeous for a vintage theme wedding.
Old Fashioned Soft Drinks
It’s probably wise to have some kind of soft drink on offer for those who don’t drink (or those you don’t want to get too squiffy before the wedding breakfast). I just love these old fashioned style lemonade bottles with paper striped straws for a country garden, rustic or vintage themed wedding. A nice way to make those non drinkers feel a little special too.
So this one isn’t exactly for your welcome drinks, but I had to share! This is from a friend’s wedding I went to a couple of years ago. The wedding favours were a mini bottle of Jägermeister and a personalised shot glass, with a little note to save for the grooms speech. He was well known for always ordering Jäger bombs, so this fitted perfectly!
Have you decided what to have for your drinks reception? We’d love to hear your ideas!
