I’m not doing this but I’ve read tons of blogs and wedding planning things that suggest this as a way to cut costs. Plus who doesn’t love a mimosa??? I totally thinkit could work. Anyone who grumbles just needs another drink.

I think having a signature drink wouldn’t be a problem. What if you skipped the champagne toasts and added two signature drinks? Like a fruity one and a stronger one. I say that because it seems like most signature drinks are fruity and some guys wouldn’t enjoy that much, but it depends on your guests!

I think that sounds nice; you’re right–who doesn’t like a mimosa?

Oh, I’m all for mimosas!! I think I’d love to sip on mimosas and it’ll save you on champagne since you’ll be mixing it!

What time is the reception? I think most people would drink mimosas in the morning or early afternoon, but may not at night.

Another thought would be to get 2 HUGE jugs/pitchers of some kind and fill those up. The firefly tea vodka/lemonade would be a good combo. Or a huge pitcher of sangria! That would look so pretty! You could get awesome pitchers with the spout at TJ Maxx!

Hard Liquor is not always more expensive if you are paying per consumption. Your guests will drink less to get the same effect.

Mimosas or Bellinis (with peach juice instead of OJ) sound awesome for an earlier day wedding!  I also think the sangria idea is great if it’s afternoon or evening….and pretty cheap to make!

I’m with the other girls. If its in the am, Mimosas are a great idea! If it’s in the evening, a large batch of premaid sangria would not be very costly to make at home and taste great. Depending on what champagne you were planning on, it could easily be the same or cheaper than having mimosas.

@ADBK2011: Mimosas are a delicious and cost effective idea!

I also really like the earlier suggestion of having sangria instead. You could have a red and white option, and the cost would be much less than other types of alchohol, but would give guests a fun, breezy option!

We are going to have 2 signature drinks and that is it. But we are DIY everything so that makes a huge difference in cost. I went to a brunch wedding where the only alcohol was mimosas… I have also been to weddings where there was no alcohol. There is no right or wrong. Each wedding is different.
