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.
Couples can choose to offer guests refreshing drinks as they arrive to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club to celebrate their wedding. Welcome beverage options include water infused with watermelon and basil, blackberry and sage, or cucumber and mint. Couples can also choose to serve fresh brewed iced tea, regular or “Southern” sweet, and lemonade, traditional or infused with strawberry and basil or lavender. Couples with weddings in the cooler months can offer 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 small bites 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 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 at no additional charge.
The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club also offers bars for those who prefer not to serve liquor or alcohol at all. The Beer, Wine and Soda Bar includes popular beers and Domino “Family Wines.” The non-alcoholic bar includes assorted soft beverages, juices and bottled water.
The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club also offers 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 and hand-crafted whiskey cocktails. Couples can add specific services 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 other 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.
