Ceremony Refreshments

Our plan for an outdoor ceremony on the plaza of the Chicago History Museum sounds principle. Yet Chicago weather is so unpredictable - especially in June, it is just as likely to be 50 degrees and raining as it is to be a sweltering 90 degrees. Selfishly I'm holding my breath for a hotter day because than it will hopefully be sunny and beautiful. So I've been brainstorming ideas for cool refreshments that our guests could enjoy on the plaza as they wait for the ceremony to begin.

I love these Izze Sodas. They are so cute and could provide a fantastic pop of color, when held at the end of the aisles in large silver buckets filled with ice. Or we could go really crazy and have servers pass them around on trays with bright straws. M is wary of both ideas and thinks that our guests can wait until cocktails after the ceremony. But I've become a bit obsessed with how cute it could look.

What do you think?
