Drink to that

Drink to that

Q. We want to wow our guests, but we're finding it hard to stretch our funds. Do you have any ideas?

A. Gillian Bartlett says: - Surprise your friends and family by hiring a prosecco van. This is a fun and quirky alternative for the reception.
- Pay for barrels of drinks instead of a fixed price per person. One usually fills 160 glasses, so it works out cheaper.
- Add a touch of elegance with fresh fruit, luxury cordials or liqueurs.
- If fizz isn't your cup of tea, then lager is often available on draught instead.
