Drinks Reception Ideas for Your Wedding

Your drinks reception is almost as an important part of your Wedding Day as your Ceremony.  There are so many different drinks reception ideas for your Wedding for you to choose from.

It is important for you to find ways to entertain your Guests between the Ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast. I want to share with you some ideas.


Entertain your Guests of all ages with some traditional garden games such as giant Jenga, Connect 4. Even Tug of War – that is a great crowd pleaser, particularly the bridal party against the Groomsmen!

Drinks reception options for your Wedding


An acoustic singer is the perfect background sound for your Guests to sit back and relax while sipping on their reception drinks and catching up with friends and family.


Think about personalising Canapes to go with your drink’s reception – perhaps tailor them around a place where you have travelled together to or local delicacies from where you originate from, accompanied by local ales or regional drinks.

Create a WOW factor with personalised cocktails for your Guests.  Perhaps create a colourful drink to match your Colour Scheme or come up with some names of cocktails to match your personalities.


These are the perfect gob smacker for your Guests.  The “Act” works their way around your Guests, serving them drinks and canapes and then at a certain time during your Celebrations they will break out into random songs.

These are a perfect addition to any DIY Wedding. Create a themed drink station or bar such as “Pimp your Gin or Prosecco” or perhaps a Whisky and Cigar trolley. Your Guests can then create their own reception drinks.

Whatever drinks options for your Wedding that you choose, you can be as different as you like.  Remember to make your drinks reception the first thing that your Guests remember about your Wedding Reception, make it a talking point.
