drinks reception with a difference

Weddings are all about Couples doing something different.  Plan your drinks reception with a difference.

Here are some suggestions for drinks receptions with a difference. Depending on what time of year you’re getting married.


Days are starting to get warmer (hopefully) and longer.

Homemade lemonade with a touch of elderflower or something different like passion fruit.

Prosecco with fresh raspberries, or even Bellini’s.


Pimm’s is a classic, but think about serving it with a twist like in Kilner jars or similar vessels.

Iced teas infused with fruits.  Other favourites are pimp your prosecco or gin bars.

Another alternative could be a spiced apple cider.


Have something warm and comforting for your Guests.  Hot chocolate with squirty cream, even have a “Pimp Your Chocolate” station with options like rum, amaretto or Bailey’s.

Other options could be Mulled wine or Cider or Whisky bars.
