More Non Alcoholic Drink Ideas
If you feel mocktail is not for you, then there are tons of other ideas you can consider for your guests.
- Botanical fizzy drinks: Botanical fizzy drinks are cheaper and a good choice especially if you’re wedding in summer.
- Iced tea: Iced tea is another great choice. It is very popular in weddings today. Depending on the number of guests and the reception setup, you can serve it in glass bottles or fill it in a large dispenser and let guests serve themselves.
Tips For Choosing The Best Drink
When choosing non alcoholic drinks, be sure to go for those that compliment the food you will be serving. People are usually keen on pairing the alcoholic wines with food but forget to do the same with non alcoholic drinks.
You can also create your own recipe and give your guests the honor of drinking your own creation. Play around with a few ingredients and create something unique that amazes everyone at the wedding. Don’t forget some cute tiny cocktail umbrellas to improve the presentation.
