DIY: An Old Fashioned Soda Bar

If you want to add something fun to your cocktail hour or reception, think of doing an old fashioned soda bar.

Information was taken from the Project Wedding Website.

Old fashioned sodas add a fun and playful element to an event and can even be used as part of your decor! There are so many to reasons to love them: they are in pretty glass bottles, lots of times with original vintage-y logos on the packaging, and they are made with pure sugar cane, delicious! Plus you'll hear your grandpa excited when he finds his favorite soda from when he was nine!

We love them all set up arranged according to color or you can even just buy the color of flavors that go with your wedding. Instead of keeping them on ice, refrigerate them up until right before and line them up on a table or bar for maximum effect.

The hardest part of having old fashioned sodas is sourcing them. They can be difficult to come by. If you live in California BevMo has a very large selection of specialty sodas (and even ships them online if you can't find something local). Gourmet delicatessens and stores can also have good selections and we've even got lucky before at warehouse stores like Costco.

Add some fizz to your wedding day with gourmet sodas!
