Sip and Savor: Creative Drink Catering Ideas for Your Wedding Reception


A successful wedding reception hinges on more than just delectable food and a stunning setting. The beverages served can also make or break the event. At Brown Brothers Catering, we understand that the term “wedding reception” encompasses more than just the food; it’s a complete sensory experience. Our award-winning catering services are renowned for their quality and creativity, and we extend that creativity to the beverages we serve.

Make Your Wedding Reception Unforgettable

Unleash Your Creativity with Signature Cocktails

One of the most creative ways to give your wedding reception a personal touch is by serving signature cocktails. This could be a favorite drink that you and your partner love or a special cocktail that represents your love story. Brown Brothers Catering can work with you to develop unique, delicious, and visually stunning drinks that will wow your guests and make your wedding reception truly memorable.

Non-Alcoholic Options: Making Everyone Feel Included

Weddings are a celebration of love, and it’s essential that every guest, regardless of their drink preferences, feels included in this celebration. This means offering a range of non-alcoholic beverages that are just as delightful and engaging as their alcoholic counterparts. From a tropical fruit punch to a stylish mocktail, Brown Brother’s Catering has a variety of creative non-alcoholic options for your wedding reception.

Wine Pairings: Elevate Your Reception Dining Experience

The pairing of food and wine is an art, and when done correctly, it can elevate your wedding reception to new culinary heights. Our in-house sommeliers can work with you to select wines that perfectly complement your chosen menu, enhancing each dish’s flavors and providing a sophisticated dining experience your guests will rave about.

Conclusion: Set the Bar High at Your Wedding Reception

Choosing the right drink options for your wedding reception is a key aspect of ensuring your event is memorable, enjoyable, and representative of you as a couple. At Brown Brothers Catering, our expert team is dedicated to helping you set the bar high with creative drink options that fit your vision and delight your guests.

Themed Beverage Stations: Adding a Fun Twist

If you’re looking for more interactive and fun drink options for your wedding reception, consider adding themed beverage stations. This could be anything from a hot chocolate bar in winter, a lemonade stand for a summer wedding, or an espresso bar for late-night revellers. By incorporating your theme and personal tastes into these stations, you provide guests with an engaging experience that goes beyond a typical drink service.

Craft Beer Selection: Catering to the Beer Lovers

For many, there’s nothing like a beautifully brewed craft beer. If this resonates with you or your guests, offering a selection of craft beers could be a perfect addition to your wedding reception. Brown Brothers Catering can source local brews that represent your location or favorite destinations, providing another way to personalize your reception.

Seasonal Drinks: Reflecting the Time of Year

Incorporating seasonal specifics in your wedding reception planning can contribute to a more cohesive and engaging event. This can extend to your drink selection as well. Choose beverages that reflect the season of your wedding, like warm apple cider for a fall wedding or refreshing watermelon cocktails for a summertime soiree.

Custom Coffee Blends: Ending on a High Note

As the night winds down, treat your guests to custom coffee blends that serve as both a pick-me-up and a delightful treat. Incorporate flavors that you love or that match your wedding theme. This small detail can leave a lasting impression on your guests, making your wedding reception even more memorable.

Champagne Toast with a Twist: Celebrating in Style

Champagne toasts are a classic wedding reception tradition but who says you can’t add your unique spin to it? You could offer a champagne cocktail bar where guests can customize their champagne toast with various liqueurs and garnishes. From a dash of elderflower cordial to a sprinkle of gold leaf, the options are endless with Brown Brothers Catering.

Global Flavours: Taking Your Guests on a World Tour

Celebrate your heritage or love for travel by incorporating drinks from around the world into your wedding reception. Celebrate with Italian Prosecco, French wine, or Mexican tequila shots – it’s a fun and innovative way to make your reception stand out and let your guests experience something new.

Sustainable Sips: Environmentally Friendly Choices

If you’re an environmentally-conscious couple, you might want to incorporate this value into your wedding reception beverage selection. Opt for locally-sourced beverages, organic wines, or craft beers from breweries that prioritize sustainability. Brown Brothers Catering can provide a variety of eco-friendly beverage options, ensuring you can celebrate responsibly.

Personalized Drinkware: Leaving a Lasting Impression

The glass that holds the drink can be as memorable as the drink itself. Consider personalizing your drinkware with your initials or wedding date. This not only adds a personal touch to your wedding reception drinks but also serves as a keepsake that your guests can take home at the end of the night.
