The Best Soft Drinks For Weddings and How to Serve Them
Finding soft drinks to serve at your wedding can be tricky. You want something that looks and feels special, all the while being light and tasty enough to drink throughout the day.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the best non-alcoholic drinks to serve at your wedding, from welcome drinks right through to the reception.
Lots of our suggestions and recipes include our very own Dash Water, because infused sparkling water is perfect for weddings. Our cans are different from the everyday and they can be enjoyed by everyone, whether served alone or as part of a tasty mocktail or cocktail.Non-Alcoholic Drinks to Serve at Your Wedding Reception
Wedding reception drinks should be fun, simple and easy to grab. You’ll need something super refreshing to hydrate your wedding guests after they’ve hit the dance floor too. Here are some of our favourite non-alcoholic wedding reception drink ideas:Cans of Flavoured Sparkling Water
Cans are really simple to serve because you can just add them to a huge ice bucket and let guests help themselves them as they please. Choosing something like Dash’s infused sparkling water works well because not only is it tasty, its simple ingredients of fruit and water can keep guests going during a big day. Opt for classic flavours like lemon sparkling water and peach sparkling water to keep everyone happy.Juice Dispenser
Filling large dispensers with fruit juice is another easy way to serve soft drinks at your wedding reception. They can add a beautiful rustic look, especially when they’re garnished with fruit slices too. Simply fill, add to a table and let guests help themselves.Soft Drinks to Add to Your Wedding Drinks Table
If you’re putting together a wedding drinks table for guests to make their own drinks, soda or sparklingwater is a great soft drink option. Choose a variety of flavours like mango, cucumber, raspberry, peach and blackcurrant to give guests lots of special choices. You can also add pots of garnish such as grapefruit slices, mint leaves, berries and peppercorns to turn it into a pimp-your-drink station.Non-Alcoholic Drinks for a Wedding Toast
If you’d like to provide a non-alcoholic option for your wedding toast, you’ll need something that can be served seamlessly alongside your Champagne. Adding something light and fizzy to a flute can make your alcohol-free guests feel included, so it’s best to choose a fruit sparkling water or a bubbly mocktail.Non-Alcoholic Wedding Welcome Drink
Like your wedding toast drink, a welcome drink is best served in a flute, and your soft drink options don’t have to be any different. Peach bellini mocktails are a perfect choice, because they’re simple to make with just peach puree and sparkling water, all the while being a tasty treat for guests.
You can also make a mimosa mocktail by mixing half orange juice and half mango sparkling water. This is also a great option for a bridal cocktail too.How to Serve Soft Drinks at a Wedding
A wedding is the best opportunity to get creative when it comes to serving drinks. It’s a chance to create a unique centrepiece that simultaneously caters to a large group of people without fuss. Here are the best ways to serve soft drinks at your wedding:Wheelbarrow

You can hire tin bath tubs which are perfect for filling with cans and bottles too.Dispensers
Dispensers are easy to source and can be filled up with whatever drinks you choose.Punch Bowl
A huge punch bowl filled with a non-alcoholic punch makes a great centrepiece and adds a lot of fun to a wedding.Set Mocktail Menu
Why not curate your own mocktail recipes for your wedding? Ask the bar server to serve a select number of mocktails, we recommend three, that you’ve picked out especially. You can even name them after you and your partner for an extra special touch!Mason Jars
If you’re looking for something more environmentally friendly than plastic cups but don’t want too breakable, mason jars are a really handy option.Bellini Wall
Instead of a Champagne wall, why not fill flutes with bellini mocktails and display on a wall?
