DRINKS AT DODMOOR
UNLIMITED DAYTIME DRINKS PACKAGES
We offer four daytime drinks packages, which offer unlimited drinks for the drinks reception, meal and speeches with a guaranteed maximum cost starting at just £14 per person for 2021. If you opt for any of these packages, we won’t stop serving your drinks or restrict the amount as this offer is designed to appeal to those who want the convenience factor and a maximum cost to help control their budgets.
Depending on the package you choose your guests could enjoy fun cocktails, hot winter drinks for the colder months, a Gin Bar with a choice of five gins or even a Martini or Mojito Bar!
Our Sapphire, Ruby and Diamond drinks packages come with our amazing drinks cabinet which will wow your guests as cocktails are made in front of them!

NO CORKAGE OPTION
You are also welcome to provide your own drinks for the drinks reception, meal and speeches, and we would serve these to your guests after you’d dropped them off with us the day beforehand. We will provide all the glassware, ice and staff to serve the drinks for you. We are also happy to cut up your garnishes such as fruit for Pimm's too!
If you are estimating how much to buy in advance, we would suggest this as a rough guide:
:: 2.5 - 3 alcoholic drinks per adult guest in the drinks reception (lasting around 90 minutes), plus some soft drinks
:: Half a bottle of wine per guest in the meal (lasting 90-120 minutes), possibly with bottles of beer and/or soft drinks on offer too
:: A glass of fizz per adult guest for speeches (five bottles to a glass), plus a non-alcoholic option
You'll be able to judge what will be most popular with your guests, and this may depend on the time of year and the wedding breakfast menu.
Also, the more choices you provide for your guests (for instance, rose wine as well as red and white wine in the meal), the more bottles of each you will need to buy – to cover all eventualities.
However, we have put together a detailed drinks calculator to help you with these sums by inputting the number of guests and each type of drink. Please click here to download the calculator.
This works best for a ‘standard’ wedding day with a drinks reception followed by a seated wedding breakfast, so you might need to alter it slightly for a more informal reception or an afternoon tea (perhaps by doubling the drinks reception amounts to cover the tea as well, if no wine is being served).
With less than 50 guests, we suggest buying slightly more of each type of drink as small variations on the day can make a bigger difference.
