As last week’s blog revealed, the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club’s wedding menu offers extensive options for building a delicious menu to serve on your wedding day. The menu also offers a variety of selections for beverages and beverage services. Couples can offer refreshments to their guests prior to the ceremony, choose bridal packages to enjoy in the bridal suite, and choose from a variety of bar services and enhancements.
As guests arrive to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club to celebrate a wedding, they often must wait for the bridal party to arrive. Our wedding menus offer the option to treat guests to refreshing drinks while they wait. Couples can choose to offer guests water infused with watermelon and basil, strawberry and basil, or lavender. Couples can also choose to serve fresh brewed iced tea, regular or “Southern” sweet. Guests attending weddings hosted in the cooler months might enjoy warm mulled cider or hot chocolate instead of infused waters or iced tea. Couples can also choose to welcome guests with more bubbly beverages including pomegranate-ginger infused sparkling cider in a sugar-rimmed flute glass or passed champagne and sparkling cider.
With our bridal package options, the bride and the groom can choose to have beverages and snacks in the bridal suite while they wait for the ceremony to begin. The “For the Bride” package includes a sampling of cheeses, fresh fruit, sparkling water, assorted soft beverages and a choice of Chardonnay, Champagne or Pinot Grigio. The “For the Groom” package includes a sampling of cheeses and meats, bottled water, assorted soft beverages and a choice of beer.
The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club offers three different varieties of an alcoholic bar – House, Premium and Ultra-Premium. All open bar selections include unlimited beverages for 4.5 hours, though extra time can be added at an additional charge. The House Bar consists of a basic selection of popular liquors, beers, wines and soft drinks. Champagne can be added to this bar for an additional charge. The Premium and Ultra-Premium Bars offer wider varieties and higher end liquors and wines. The Ultra-Premium Bar includes a complimentary champagne toast for all guests.
Less extensive bars are available for those who prefer not to serve liquor or alcohol at all. The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club offers a beer, wine and soda bar with popular beers and Domino “Family Wines.” The non-alcoholic bar includes assorted soft beverages, juices and bottled water.
While we offer simpler bar selections, we also offer beverage enhancements to take the bar up a notch! Couples can personalize their special event at the bar by offering a signature cocktail. Our team can customize a cocktail based on the couples favorite color, flavor or brand to serve to guests as a signature drink. Couples can also offer a two hour bourbon bar featuring a custom selection of five special release spirits. Couples can add specific services as well including table side wine service or a champagne toast to be coordinated by our event staff. Couples can also add a coffee and tea station for guests to enjoy along with the bar services.
Selecting the perfect wedding menu can seem daunting, but our wedding menu packet walks couples through the selection process step-by-step. Couples can begin by selecting their bar then adding welcome drinks and enhancements. Our wedding team is always available to help couples create the perfect menu for their big day.
