We’re Bixby + Pine and we started in 2014 officially, but unofficially YEARS before that as three best friends planned everything with intense detail–birthday parties, carnivals, talent shows, and everything in between. Our B+P couples are people who value experiences and relationships, above all else.
Our job is to put together a wedding day that reflects our clients’ love story, while celebrating all the people that matter most in their lives! We obviously care about the pretty shit, but more importantly, we want the weddings we design for our clients to be one that could only be theirs–that’s how intentional we are throughout the planning process.
If that philosophy didn’t sell ya, we also like tacos, margaritas, The Bachelor and graphic tanks.
Okay, now we’re moving on to what we’re really hear to talk about: MOCKTAILS AT WEDDINGS!
Our clients pay close attention to the details and their guests’ experience, so that means typically we’re looking at a really thorough bar: beer, wine, and signature cocktails.
We obviously want to include ALL people, from the babies to the grandfolks, we want everyone to have a spot at the table (both literally and figuratively). This means we want wheelchair access for your friend who broke his leg and your granddad who is going to watch you dance the night away with your forever person. This means we want to provide vegan, vegetarian, and pescatarian options for dinner. This also means we want to have beverage options for everyone, so today we’re going over our favorite alcohol-free cocktails so that you can be as inclusive as possible on your wedding day.
The French 50
One of the easiest ways to include everyone is by picking a signature cocktail or two that tastes JUST as good without the booze. We did that here for Lauren + Connor’s backyard wedding. And the next best way–batch a mocktail recipe and let it be self-serve. EA-SY-PEA-SY.
We hope this helped you in the wedding planning process, but feel free to share it with your friend who’s getting married–you know they’ll appreciate the insight (and recipe ideas!).
