On a modest budget but want a free bar at your reception? Then grab your shades and head for Dover. Because if you take a booze cruise, you'll avoid paying UK duty and could shave up to 60 per cent off your drinks bill. For instance, at The Calais Wine Store (www.calaiswine.co.uk), you can pick up Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz Rosé for £2 a bottle (around £7 off the usual price), while at Majestic in France (www.majesticinfrance.co.uk), Côtes du Rhône 2009 Les Galets will set you back £2.99 a bottle (when you buy two), saving you £2.50 per bottle on the UK price (note: this offer is valid for collections made by May 2 2011). Even with the ferry ticket (from £22 return; www.seafrance.com), you're still likely to save a tidy sum.
