I don’t like bubbly drinks/soda either but if you think your guests like to drink it then I would provide it?

@kazarmo:  Good luck with the planning.  I understand that you do not like bubbly stuff, and if you want to stick to water – go for it, but I’m not sure that means your guests must be stuck with only water.  I think they might like sparkling water, fruit juices or sparkling cider, tea, lemonade, sodas, and /or punch.  Heck you have an august wedding – do some root beer floats.

I would buy a special drink for your toasts. You may not like bubbly stuff but some sparkling cider or grape juice would work nicely. Not that it’s a big deal but some people consider it bad luck to toast with water.

Consider the toast a treat for the guests..even if you don’t love champagne (and since it’s not allowed!), try something like apple cider or flavored cider for your guests. How about something eyecatching and elegant like a wild hibiscus flower with apple cider, or a non-alcoholic cocktail (wild hibiscus, 7-up, and some of the syrup from the jar). For cups, you can pick up very cute plastic ones at the dollar store if glass wil be an issue at your outdoor venue.

 

Favors: totally up to you. The consensus on the Bee seems to be no trinkets or useless things that will get thrown out. Food favors are great, or something homemade like squares, smores kits, jam, etc.

Table linens: check with your local rentals place to see what they cost. You can also order them online.

Good luck!

I would rent a nice glass for toasts, maybe use a sparkling wine. Linens can be cheaper to buy if you do your research probably easier to rent. I’m a big believer of favors no matter how many guest you have. Hosted a baby shower for 25guest, still had favors. But if it’s not in the budget it’s fine to skip them.
