Happy first day of Summer! It’s our favorite wedding season, when the days are long, the sun is shining, and love is in the air. Last week, we talked about our favorite summer cocktails to serve at your summer wedding, but what happens when some of your guests don’t drink alcohol? You serve them wedding mocktails instead! They are fun and flavorful like cocktails but without a drop of alcohol.

Here are some delicious wedding mocktails, mojitos and spritzers ideas to add to your drink menu if you’re having a summer wedding.
