If you wanted to mix it up you could do a mimosa bar with different juices and fruit add ins. You could also do some “adult” coffee with Baileys and Kahlua.

You could have a whole mimosa bar with different flavors of champagne and juice to add variety.

Bloodies, for sure. And the folks I know wouldn’t say no to a glass or two of white wine or light beer with brunch.

Serve whatever you want.  It’s a wedding.  Many people will choose not to have any alcohol, so you probably won’t need as much, but I would serve wine, and local craft beer.  People that don’t want it, won’t drink it – so have other options for them.

If you are feeling unsure about it, though, there is nothing wrong with just have a champagne toast and mimoas, and serve tea, coffee, juice, pop, and sparkling water.

A punch, as a PP suggested, is a really great idea, too – just saw that after writing my post.  But, definitely a few cases of San Pellegrino will be valuabl to have on hand.  We had a day time, non alcholic, reception, before our evening Speakeasy.  We had iced tea, lemonade, and gelato.

Cesar bars where people can choose their own add-ins are really fun in addition to mimosa bars.
