Spike your Wedding
Libations

It's time to wet your whistle! The warm weather is the best time to give your guests a choice in their wedding libation. Whether your wedding is fancy or laid-back, this drink bar is the perfect addition to your wedding.

The warm weather of spring and summer is the perfect time to incorporate a drink bar into your wedding reception. They’re tasty, refreshing and add a bit of flair to your normal bar.

The best part about incorporating a drink bar into your event is the options it provides for your guests.

They can be filled with your favorite soda, wine, Champagne or beer. Also, no one wants to stand in line, so a table full of bubbly is always a good thing!
