This is non-helpful, but if I were getting married in NC I would definitely have some Cheerwine on hand… I love, love, love that soda and it’s hard to find anywhere else 🙂

I think coke products are fine at a wedding! People won’t expect anything fancy for a drink. I like the idea of sweet tea too, what about lemonade or pink lemonade also?

Izze and Jones both make sodas that come in all kinds of really fun colors and flavors (like fufuberry and orange creamsicle) and they are not expensive. You can order them in bulk or buy them at any wholesale store. Jones will even let you upload your own photos to make bottle labels that are customized for the occasion.

I think maybe tea, lemonaid, different juices for the kids, apple, cranberry, Maybe some a punch.. You could make a cute little drink station with cut lemons limes etc and flavoring.. like rasperry, peach etc for the lemonaid, and teas. Other than that idk thats all I got hope this helps.

@gso_bride: Yes, I think you can buy them at any wholesale store, I know I’ve seen them at BJ’s and Costco. I know budgets are important, but sometimes it’s worth it to spend a little more on stuff that people will remember, enjoy and most of all, drink and not waste!

At our annual work picnic, our caterer makes this raspberry lemonade that is to die for… it’s just standard lemonade with a little raspberry juice to make it pink and some floating raspberries and lemon slices.  It’s really beautiful and good.

We’re in TN and we’re doing Sweet Tea, Unsweet Tea, Lemonade, Juices (like a Juice Bar maybe only a couple options though since we have all the other drinks too), and just water.  FI and I neither one drink soft drinks so we’re not even offering them.  We actually just went to a wedding this weekend where they had sweet tea lemonade and water and punch for the cake.  It was great and no one seemed to say anything about not having any other options.

@gso_bride:We are getting married on 8/20/2011 and are serving the WF Green Apple and Tangerine Italian sodas. They are affordable and also look great in a glass.
