34 FIZZY COCKTAIL RECIPES PERFECTLY MADE FOR PROSECCO

Remember the great Prosecco shortage of 2015? A entire world without Prosecco, can you imagine? People everywhere stocked up their drinks cabinets and we all savored every last sip. As it happened, I don’t think we ever did quite get round drinking all the Prosecco, but if you’re anything like me, you bloody well gave it a good go!

Since then, Prosecco has continued to rise up through the ranks as one of our favourite tipples, with many, myself included, preferring it over champagne. So, with the weekend drawing closer I thought it would be fun to round up some of my favourite fizzy cocktails, perfect for this weekends celebrations.

“We have decided to elope – we did have a blessing to do so by my parents but now that I have mentioned it again it hasn’t really gone down well, as if they’ve completely changed their minds on the idea? We are still doing it regardless but its kind of put a dampener on it… I’m so excited to elope and likewise cannot wait to be his wife. But just the daunting fact of how to tell people, especially when the reception is 4 months after we are married? Any advice on how to tell people? Is it rude to  just send an invite to our party? Or do we publicly announce? Please help! I’m in such a panic about it.”

While there are many good reasons for couples wanting to elope i.e costs, stress, family feuds etc, you really shouldn’t let your fear of telling people about your decisions prevent you from following your dream wedding, so we have compiled a list of helpful tips to hopefully make that process easier.

1. Know the Law?

The law on getting married in public places differs depending on the location. For example here in the UK, venues need to be licensed for the marriage to be considered legally binding. This doesn’t rule out getting married in a public place if it doesn’t hold a license completely, it just means a legal civil ceremony will need to be performed elsewhere to formalize the marriage. Many will opt for a humanist ceremony in their preferred location instead, this can be a lot more flexible and highly personalised to suit your beliefs and is something a celebrant will be able to help you with.
