5. Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktail

One key thing to consider if you are planning to treat your guests to a few drinks at your wedding, is that not everyone drinks alcohol. To be considerate of this, why not order up a few mocktails? There are many mocktails out there, but one that tends to shine out from the rest is the non-alcoholic version of the strawberry daiquiri. It’s sweet and bursting with flavour! What’s not to like?
