Celebration Libations

When it comes to libations, there are not many drinks that my fiance and I will turn down. For our wedding we want to offer our guest a plethora of options. We like the idea of welcoming guests with a cocktail before the ceremony and have been playing around with the idea of something with lavender to take advantage of local ingredients.

An agua fresca bar incorporating fresh local fruit like strawberries and oranges is also on our wish list.

As well as a bourbon bar.

Personally, I don't think one can go wrong with a champagne cocktail or classic champagne.

With the Central Coast being well-known for its wines, we plan to serve wine from some of our favorite local wineries as well as beer from local micro-breweries.


Something tells me our guests will have no problem quenching their thirst. How did you decide what to serve for you wedding?
