If your friends are anything like mine, they’ll be heading straight to the bar once they get to the reception. An easy and fun way to add a touch of uniqueness to your wedding day is to have alternative and quirky wedding drinks. It’s a really easy way to make your day that little bit more exciting and memorable. If you’re stuck for ideas, have a look at some of the wedding drinks we have come up with at Marry Me Ireland.
1. Prosecco Tap
I often fantasise about having prosecco on tap at home but unfortunately my other half is totally against it (sighh). However, if there’s any day that you can get a prosecco tap, it’s your wedding day. This will be a huge hit with your wedding guests. You can even hire out prosecco vans that are already hooked up with the taps, so there’s no hassle.
2. Signature Cocktail
Every good party needs an even better signature cocktail. It’s a great way to get your personal style and taste across in a quirky and fun way. Make sure to keep your wedding theme in mind when designing the perfect drink.
Having a DIY cocktail making section is a fun way to keep your guests occupied. Lay out multiple ingredients and get cocktail recipes printed out to give your guests a hand. You can spell it out even further and attach the right mixtures to shot bottles.
If you don’t want to spend a huge amount on drink, but want to give your guests a little treat, you could make a few batches of punch. This works really well for at home weddings, as you probably won’t have a bar tender and your guests can serve themselves.
5. Drinks in a Jar
The trend of serving drinks in a jar has been around for so long that it is becoming the norm. We are all for it though, it really just makes the drink’s presentation 100 times better. You can pick up really cheap jars online and even reuse them at future parties.
6. Personalise It
A simple tip for serving your wedding drinks is to add a touch of customisation to it. Design customised drink coasters, glass (or jar) stickers, or personalised straws for an extra flair. You can even personalise your ice cubes by freezing fruit into them.
Here at Marry Me Ireland we have a wide variety of exceptional celebrants who can deliver the wedding ceremony of your dreams – traditional, unique or otherwise. So get in touch today and we can start planning your special day!
