Delicious Wedding Mocktails Everyone Will Love

Providing a full bar for a wedding isn't for the faint of wallet. It can easily run to $3,000 for around 200 people, which is a pretty big chunk out of anyone's budget! But who doesn't want gorgeous cocktails on the tables too? So, a good middle ground is to provide beer, wine and alcohol-free cocktails.

The other advantage of mocktails is that they're healthier, everyone – even the kids and teetotalers - can partake of them, and they have fewer calories than alcoholic beverages.

Whether you're having a booze-free bachelorette party or a non-alcoholic option at your reception, mocktails are a great addition to any drinks menu.

Here are some ideas that will please all your guests:
