WEDDING PLANNING

TO THE HAPPY COUPLE! Written by Liddy Goodrum @littlehorsebox

Liddy Goodrum, owner of The Little Horse Box mobile wine bar, says your wedding drinks should be at the top of your to-do list.

P

lanning a wedding is all about the details. These days, there is so much inspiration that, if you are anything like me, you can spend hours on Pinterest.

Wedding drink trends have moved beyond bucks fizz and Champagne. There’s nothing wrong with these traditional options – in fact, I quite like them – but there’s so much fun to be had when organising your beverages. Our most popular wedding drinks package is our bespoke option, where couples can choose from our wine list, fill the horse box with their favourite tipples, or they might like to come up with their own signature wedding cocktails. The choices are endless, but where do you start? A good starting point would be to consider your theme and colour schemes. For a vintage wedding, why not include some vintage cocktails? There are some old recipes online just waiting to be tried and tested! Or, speak with older family members about drinks of their era. Mismatched glassware will also

complement a vintage theme – the more higgledy-piggledy, the better! When it comes to colour, you can find drinks to match every shade of the rainbow. Whether your bridesmaids are dressed in red, pink or blue, having a cocktail that enhances your colour scheme will provide a great talking point for guests.

It’s also important to consider the month in which you are getting married. What will the weather be doing? For a spring wedding, an elegant wedding punch will refresh the palette, while a summery and light raspberry limoncello prosecco will work well for an August wedding. Planning an autumnal gathering? How about setting up an apple cider bar? Whin Hill Cider is located in the beautiful seaside town of Wells, producing exquisite cider that your guests will adore. As for a winter wedding, mulled wine springs to mind. Broadland Wineries offer a Chocolate Drop mulled wine – an imaginative blend of red wine and luxurious dark chocolate flavours. Perfect for chocoholics! After all, the drinks you serve on your big day have to reflect your own individual preferences. The way you serve them offers another fun way to express your personality. I love using an old wheelbarrow filled with beers. It acts as such a statement and is sure to please the avid beer drinker!
