Create Your Own Cocktail
Fancy a welcome drink that’s a little more alternative? Then why not create your own signature cocktail? Is there a drink that means something to you as a couple? Perhaps you both had mojitos on your first date, or perhaps he popped the question whilst you were holidaying in Mexico, in which case a margarita would go down a treat! Choose a cocktail that has sentimental value and not only will you have a meaningful welcome drink but a unique one too.
Summer Loving Pimm’sNothing beats a glass of Pimm’s on a summer’s day, so if you’re getting hitched in the summer, this drink is a must. This quintessential British cocktail is classy, plus a little can go a long way! So, how do you make the perfect Pimm’s? Just add lemonade with orange, cucumber, mint and strawberry, and say hello to a tasty and thirst quenching celebratory drink.

The cold weather calls for a hot drink, but you can hardly hand out mugs of hot chocolate! Although, top these with marshmallows and whipped cream and they’ll go down well with the little ones. Mulled wine (you can try out Hausler Family Wines) is a winning choice; it tastes incredible, smells heavenly, and will set the mood for a cosy wedding.
