Decided to have a wedding without alcohol? Inform your guests in good time!
It's best to mention it already on the invitation. It is important to explain to your guests the reason for not using dehydrated drinks, so that your decision can be understood by everyone. It is also worth being consistent - if the ban on alcohol is total, everyone, without exception, should comply with it. You may also decide to introduce a symbolic percentage and limit yourself to a glass of wine or a welcome toast with a glass of champagne.
How to have fun at a wedding without alcohol?
A good leader is the key! Properly trained person will make the guests have a great time, with or without alcohol. The best bet is on a specific scenario: greeting the young people with bread and salt, the first dance, greeting the guests by the bride and groom at the first meal, synchronous dances, joint games, competitions, sketches and stagings, as well as mandatory captions at midnight. An original and touching idea will be a dance at dimmed lights, following the capillaries, only in the company of candles or fireworks kept by guests. It is also worth betting on a trained music band, preferably one with experience in playing at non-alcoholic events. How about inspirational shows: from romantic lanterns, through fireworks, to bartending performances? How about... karaoke?
Not only water and juices
Who said that lack of alcohol must be associated with boring drinks? An offer without percentages can be given in an equally interesting or even more attractive form. First of all, we should focus on unconventionality. Preparing juices in sophisticated, exotic flavours such as kiwi, mango or cactus is only a prelude. The offer of freshly squeezed juices, fruit cocktails and non-alcoholic versions of the most popular drinks is perfect for every party. Drinks served with the appropriate decoration, accompanied by popular umbrellas and slices of various fruits, will make an impression on all, even the most picky guests, while making them aware that the lack of alcohol at the wedding party absolutely does not result from the stinginess of the hosts. An interesting solution may also be a non-alcoholic wine, having both the aroma and taste of the wine to which we are accustomed. It is becoming increasingly popular at weddings to provide the presence of a professional bartender, preparing sophisticated drinks. It is also a good idea to prepare the ingredients and recipes and place them on the tables of the guests - so that the gardeners can prepare various cocktails of their own accord.
Do not forget to place your guests at the table. Everyone invited should feel comfortable in their company. Yeah, but that's what it's all about at every wedding.
