Sober Wedding Reception Ideas

Even though you can still have a lot of fun in your wedding with non-alcohol drinks, most people still see dry weddings as boring. That, however, is far from the truth as there are a million ways to make a wedding reception to be awesome without putting everyone in attendance under the influence of liquor. The following are some of the ways of having sober wedding reception ideas:

  • Pick a groovy venue that does not tolerate alcohol. When planning for a sober wedding reception, the first step is to select a venue that forbids alcohol. Examples of such venues are such as nature reserves, beaches, public squares, lakes, and national parks.
  • Make your wedding compatible with children. Having little ones in your wedding allows the grown-ups to loosen themselves up so that they can also embrace their inner kids by doing things such as karaoke, face painting, puzzles, and games.
  • Schedule your bridal ceremony at a time when your guests are least likely to drink. The best times can be in the mornings after a sunrise wedding where the guests are more likely to ask for coffee as opposed to alcohol.
  • Hiring a good DJ or band that will keep the guests fully entertained. The right DJ or band can be able to constantly engage your guests with humor while ensuring all the pleasures are moving on without a glitch. Playing popular tunes will make the guests to be occupied throughout the wedding ceremony.
  • Plan your wedding around a delightful theme that does not include booze. There are a lot of themes which excludes alcohol and selecting one of them ensures that the guests enjoy themselves without the strain of including booze on the menu.
  • Serve mocktails instead of booze. You can come up with your preferred non-alcoholic drinks which you can serve your guests or even request an ardent bartender to produce a signature virgin drink for you and your party.
  • Introduce games and other activities. You can entertain your guests by introducing games, door prizes, and other activities. When planning a fall wedding, for instance, you can include a donut race or even a hay-lined bowling alley that will keep the guests busy and happy.
  • Make a recreational hobby the main feature of entertainment. This means figuring the hobbies that you share as a couple and using them as the focal point of entertainment for your wedding. For instance, if you two love rock climbing, you can go ahead and lease an indoor rock climbing gymnasium and use it as a reception.
  • Hire a comedian. Having a comedian as your wedding MC will keep your guest laughing throughout. You can also choose to hire impersonators to keep your guests entertained.
  • Offer a limited bar. You can choose to serve signature cocktails or some drinks, either wine or beer for only a limited amount of time. You can serve the drinks during the cocktail hour and stop immediately the reception begins.
