Find of the Moment: Putting A Spin on Wedding Refreshments

The summer heat has everyone searching for a cool refreshment.  Those of you planning a wedding, a rehearsal dinner or just a “celebrate everything” gathering know that it’s important to keep your guests comfortable and well-hydrated, and your are probably looking to put a new spin on the refreshments for your guests.  Want something healthier than soda but more exciting than water? We found just the thing!

An up and coming company called Spindrift creates unique and healthy alternatives for your wedding day (and any-day) refreshments. Their flavored waters come in tangerine, lemon and raspberry lime ranging from 0-10 calories each. They also offer sparkling sodas in a variety of flavors including grapefruit, blackberry, mango orange, lemonade, cranberry, and half & half (or many know it as an Arnold Palmer). They aren’t expensive either -$54.00 for 24 bottles!

Spindrift is not your ordinary soda or flavored water company; they offer a healthy and natural alternative. For all you health conscious people out there, this is for you. Spindrift is the first completely all-natural, fresh squeezed soda on the market – no syrups, no juice concentrates, no additives, no preservatives. Spindrift is so fresh that it has a shelf life and is delivered alongside fresh produce.

The company is very creative with design and flavorings, constantly  mixing new flavors and coming up with new ideas. And now, it’s time for a reality check.  This blog is written by event designers and planners, so we are kind of obsessive about how things look.  We can’t help it!  That’s why we LOVE the look and feel of Spindrift beverages.  Would we suggest that you select the flavors based on the color scheme of your wedding?? Well….maybe!

Regardless, these bottles offer a great alternative to the usual lemonade and water stands.  Your guests will love grabbing a cool bottle and will savor the refreshing flavors.  What a great way to personalize your wedding hydration station!

We were thrilled with Spindrift’s philanthropy projects to preserve water resources as well. Not only are they creating new alternatives for you, but also constantly working with their non-profit partners to help contribute to community and informational outreach projects. Each bottle cap is printed on the inside with a non-profit partner’s information for getting the water preservation word out.  To top it off, having originated in Massachusetts, the company is now established in California, too.  They must have heard about what a great destination California really is!

Who doesn’t love a water efficient, community conscious company and product that also tastes great and is good for you? What a wonderful idea to cool things down for your guests!
