Whilst the bride will be the centre of attention on the big day, every wedding planner knows it is all about the small details. Whether they be the right cursive handwriting on the seating cards, or matching the sugared almonds in the favours to the bridesmaids’ bows.
But for couples really looking to make a statement, Liquid Gold have bottled their exquisite, extra dry DOC Spumante Brut prosecco in six different colourways – pink, aqua, red, green, dark blue, silver and gold – so even the wedding bubbles can deliver wow-factor.
Wedding caterer Ren Esack of Ren’s Kitchen (who offers iquid Gold prosecco as an alternative to champagne on the bar menuL, should it be a preference) says ‘, It is quite common to have drinks on the tables for guests to serve themselves at a sit-down wedding breakfast. Liquid Gold bottles will make for a striking centrepiece, especially when matched to the floral décor – the red and green bottles will look great for Christmas weddings also…’
Prosecco is fast becoming a more cost effective alternative to champagne, with 307 million bottles sold worldwide in 2013. Ren Esack advises to ‘budget for at least half a bottle of prosecco per person for welcome drinks at your wedding and a little bit more for speeches. In our experience, guests are happy to pay for drinks if the wedding runs into the evening – why not discuss the option of running a cash bar with your caterer? ’
We also recommend skipping the welcome drinks to cut down on the budget. In fact, guests can toast with whatever they have in their hand, rather than passing out bubbles specifically for wedding toasts! Another budget-friendly option is to skip having a full bar and just offer a small selection. You could easily have just a red wine, a white wine and some Liquid Gold prosecco for the sparkling option.
Liquid Gold prosecco is made from grapes grown in the Italian Conegliano hills and can be ordered by the case online via www.liquidgolddrinks.com. Customers can choose single bottle colour options or mixed cases.
