I’m trying to plan a reception on a Saturday at 6:00 pm. My guy’s friends enjoy alcohol, while his family, my family (if they attend), and my side of people don’t really drink either based on religion, prefer not to or are breastfeeding/pregnant. We, ourselves, are either on atypical antipsychotic medication or antidepressants, so we cannot drink. We would like to do a signature drink, since there’s not enough to make a cash bar worth it. We were thinking something like a mango mojito? Wedding color scheme is plum/lavender, grey, ivory and green. Anyone have suggestions on a non-alcoholic drink that maybe matches in color? Thanks!

You could do a lavendar lemonade – I know it sounds kinda funky, but they are really tasty together 🙂

We’re doing nojitoes (nonalcoholic mojitoes). We’re just mixing one bottle of Stirrings mojito mix with four liters of club soda, adding ice, and garnishing with fresh mint. We tried it out, and ended up loving it so much that we’re getting a bunch of extra bottles of the mojito mix, so we can drink it ourselves at home.

I LOVE strawberry lemonade. It always tastes great and makes me feel cheerful and young.

We are having a brunch reception with no alcohol. In addition to iced tea, cranberry juice & orange juice, (and of course ice water with lemon), we’re having a smoothie bar with a strawberry lemonade smoothie and a blueberry banana smoothie! They are delicious! I’m excited about it because its different than a signature drink – so its not just a cocktail with no booze (though those can be yummy – I love virgin strawberry dauquiris!)
We also have plum & lavendar as wedding colors! The blueberry banana smoothie is actually a pretty shade of purple, so I would recommend that.

I suggest a non-alcoholic peach bellini…..peach puree and sparkling apple cider….delicious and can be made with seasonal berries or fruits!

Non-alcoholic mojitos are very yummy! When made with Sprite instead of club soda they are a little sweeter and very drinkable. 🙂
