Once you've organised your menu and chosen your cake design, it's time to turn your attention to the drinks. Here are some cool quirky ideas:
- Hire a champagne fountain. It'll be a great centre piece and is a unique way of serving wine, cocktails and fruit punches. Five gallon fountains are available for hire from www.mintchampagnefountains.co.uk and it'll cost you £199 including the delivery and collection charge. The fountains also work well with non-alcoholic fruit punches so the 'designated driver' guests won't feel left out.
- Add a personal touch to your bar menu by choosing a signature cocktail. Ask your caterer to suggest a drink that stars your favourite spirit, matches your colour scheme, or just sounds delicious. The best bit is that you'll save money since you can then offer wine, beer, champagne, and just the bespoke cocktail, rather than a full bar.
- Celebrate your wedding night with a special bottle of champagne from Atelier Moet. Until Christmas, Moet & Chandon is offering a bespoke bottle personalisation service so you can spell out your names or wedding date in Swarovski crystals. Just head down to Selfridges, Oxford Street on selected days and watch as a special artisan handcrafts your Swarovski encrusted bottle. Once you've enjoyed the bubbly with your groom, keep the bottle and use as a candlestick. Just pop a candle in the neck of the bottle. It's a fab wedding day momento. From £50 for a personalised bottle of Moet & Chandon Imperial; www.selfridges.com.
