Cheers to a drink that best suits you and your nuptials!
The best parties have three things in common: great people, great food and great drinks. If you've already nailed down your guest list and found a fantastic caterer in the UAE, we've got some ideas on the top non-alcoholic drinks to toast to a happy marriage with.
Conscious consumption has been on the rise for couples who seek a sober but still spectacular celebration.
We've rounded up a selection of bottles to pop for your special occasion. From sparkling rose to classic mocktails, our list of fun and delicious drink ideas are guaranteed to be a hit on your big day.
Whether you choose not to drink alcohol as part of your lifestyle or are temporarily abstaining, these non-alcoholic choices will keep the party flowing. Have a look!
1. Dealcoholized wines
Simple is best, and there's nothing more classic than wine at a wedding. Dealcoholized wines are booze-free wines that take out the alcohol but don't skip out on their flavour.
We suggest selecting one red, one sparkling, and one white - however this wholly depends on your menu! Guests will always appreciate food and drinks that can be paired.
Wines such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are popular as they are food friendly, and there are plenty of non-alcoholic options available for them!
To make your drink more personal, why not pick a dealcoholized wine from the place you loved travelling to or a local bottle from where you and your future spouse met.
2. Sparkling drinks
For a non-alcoholic version of a wedding day pop, fizz, clink, consider having these bubblies:
- Sparkling cider, apple juice, grape juice or other carbonated juices
- Mock mimosas, which typically include ginger ale
- Ginger ale or ginger beer
- Flavoured seltzer water
Sweet sparkling drinks are also best paired with sweet wedding cakes.
3. Non-alcoholic beers
Non-alcoholic beers have less than 0.5 percent alcohol by volume. You can discover plenty of tasty, alcohol-free brew from a handful of craft and beer brands.
Near-beers to try include Clausthaler, Beck's, Heineken and Bitburger Drive's non-alcoholic selections.
4. Flat drinks
Consider these flat drink options for your conscious consumption wedding:
- Sparkling or flavoured water
- Floats and malts
Want to keep your wedding bar exciting? Try going for a pressed juice station, iced tea or lemonade station, or allow guests to add their own flavoured syrups to soda.
5. Fun mocktails
A good and delicious drink requires a variety of interesting ingredients, and alcohol doesn't have to be one of them.
An easy way to quench your guests' thirst without opting for booze are mocktails. If there's going to be a bartender at your wedding, talk to them beforehand about ways they can turn traditional party cocktails like piña coladas, daiquiris and Marys into mocktails for your big alcohol-free occasion.
