Hampshire Sussex wedding magazine

Doily’s Bar

March 24, 2016 | News

We love working on our magazine but we missed being at weddings! We missed meeting the caterers, the photographers, seeing your creative ideas, smelling your flowers, watching your first dance, laughing at your dad’s speech… So we decided to get back out there! “What do all good weddings need?” we thought… and being the booze hounds that we are, we decided on a bar. The full pop-up set comprises vintage wallpapered walls; complete with antlers, flying ducks and record covers, a fridge, and our 1950s ‘boat’ cocktail bar. It’s a fun backdrop for photos and a practical solution for a marquee, barn or village hall. We need a 5m x 5m space and we transform it into a mini pub straight out the 1950s!

We operate as a cash bar and we can tailor welcome drinks to suit your event. How about going all out with the retro theme and having Babycham bottles with straws? Or Mallibu and pineapple perhaps? We can provide the wine for your meal and fizz for your toast too.

Last summer we did a lovely garden party where we welcomed guests with Sangria and served Espresso Martini’s at 10pm. They went down a treat! Especially with the bride’s dad who said he’d happily drink them for breakfast! We also did a wedding in Kent where our draft ale from Black Cat Brewery kept the guests lubricated and Blueberry Mojitos kept us busy behind the bar. SO many limes!

Here’s what our clients had to say:

“From the first moment I contacted Helen at Doily Days she was professional, efficient and all round brilliant! We had a pop up bar at our garden wedding in Sussex and it looked so much better than we had even imagined, it was a great talking (and gathering) point for everyone. The staff and Helen were lovely on the day, really calm, they just got on and did everything we’d asked and more. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them” Zannah Marchland, July 2015

“We were delighted with your service in every way. The staff were great, very efficient, professional and looked the part. There was plenty of booze and the bar set up and tables and chairs were perfect. You have a brilliant product and deserve every success in the future! Various people have commented on how good you were and that they would use your services for future events.” Anna Maimi, August 2015
