    @HoneyBee1811:

    You could do something like a toast, and bloody marys and mimosas??

    I agree with @flamingred! You should do some signature drinks that people would have at that time of day. Maybe do the bloody marys and mimosas then offer champagne with raspberries in it also. I don’t think it’s necessary to serve wine and beer but some people do drink it at lunch. It’s up to you and your budget i guess!

    I agree with the others, I would probably just offer mimosas, and maybe plain champagne for the toast.

    Here is what we did for cocktail hour! If you are having champagne for mimosa’s it can also be served plain but with strawberries or raspberries in it to make it a little more fancy!

    I second the bloody mary bar and mimosas! Maybe with some wine thrown in? I also enjoy cocktails.What if you just did 3 signature drinks?

    My friends and I are pretty big drinkers (that sounds bad, and no, we’re not alcoholics) but I think that’s a little early for a full bar. I generally favor liquor drinks, but wouldn’t drink that early.

    I would just do signature drinks. Your wedding is begging for a brunch menu with mimosas and bloody marys. I think that would be perfect and all you’d need to provide.

    I don’t think people would drink wine that early, but I would personally appreciate beer especially if the reception goes until 3.  I also love the idea of mimosas and bloody marys.

    Go with 3 types of champagne drinks- mimosas, the peach snapps and champagne which is called a bellini they are amazing!! and regular champagne with a berry in it!

    We served Bellinis at my shower and everyone loved them. You can throw frozen peach  slices in each glass and it is sooooo good!

    I actually am going with bellinis and mimosas for my morning wedding and that’s it :o) although since all the fixings are there it is quite easy to say just champagne can be used you know?

    We had a brunch wedding and did bloody mary’s, mimosas, beer and wine.  People WILL drink, but the good news is they won’t drink as much.  I was sweating our final bill, and it came in LOWER than the estimate!

    Signature champagne drinks are probably your easiest, tastiest bet. If you’re feeling fancy, maybe beer and wine, but I honestly don’t think you’ll need it.
