If snowflakes and sleighs get you all excited, a winter wedding will be perfect for you and your sweetheart. While you are out shopping for snowmen-shaped decorative pieces for your wedding, don’t forget to decide how you are going to keep people warm i.e. What kind of beer will be best suited for a wintery wedding.
A cider can help keep things warm and cozy. You can select Woodchuck Dark & Dry 802 Draft Cider for your big day. This beer has a mild bitter flavor with an appropriate amount of nutmeg in it. It is made of Champaign wheat and apples. Eggnog flavored beer can also be an option but you need to make sure that your teenage guests do not over-imbibe.
The Destination Wedding
