Wedding drinks in 2023 have come a long way since sherry was the arrival sip de jour. Now, there are many and varied options to suit your signature style. Some are simple. Some are more complex. And some are even at different temperatures!

Hitched’s Rima Barakeh explains, “All you need to do is nail down the drinks that best fit who you are as a couple and the time of year you’re serving them”.

So, let’s take a look at some of the most coveted wedding drinks in 2023. Not forgetting the gorgeous glassware to guarantee a perfect match, for summer serves and winter warmers alike.
