Craig y Nos Castle Wales Wedding Drinks Packages


Castle Wedding Drinks Package

"On 70 guests you save £380 buying the Castle Drinks Package compared to buying bottles individually."


Welcome Drinks are served in the Nicolini Lounge here.

Serving Canapes with welcome drinks is suggested if having a late wedding banquet.  

For Table Wine

We recommend 20 bottles for 50 guests. We allow 1 bottle of table wine per 2.5 guests. Table Wine is £21.50/ bottle (2022). A table of ten needs 4 bottles of house wine, typically two red and two white.

If you bought wine by the bottle it works out at £8.60 / guest. However for Castle Wedding Drinks Package, Table Wine is £7.58 a guest as we've not increased the 'Drinks Package' tariff in line with wine bottle prices.

For Toasts

We recommend 2-3 bottles Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Veuve, per table, depending on number of guests at each table.

Within the Castle Drinks Package, our Sparkling Wine is costed on the old £21.75/ bottle tariff, i.e. at 2018 prices.

On 2022 tariff, Sparkling Wine is £28.00/ bottle if purchased separately.  Castle Drinks Package savings will increase in later years (2024 - 2025) as the rate per bottle goes up each year, but your Drinks Package is locked in at current rates.

There are 6 glasses per bottle and you need up to two glasses per guest for the toasts, which makes two bottles per table of 6-7 or 3 bottles per table of 9-10.

So for Castle Wedding Drinks Package, Sparkling Wine =£7.25 a guest compared with (£28.00/3) £9.33 a guest on 2022 tariffs if you bought sparking wine by the bottle.


Saving Made on Castle Drinks Package

If Wine and Welcome Drinks were purchased by the bottle separately, you would pay: (A) Welcome Drinks @ £7.00/ guest, (B) Wine £8.60 / guest and (C) Toasting Drinks £9.33. This comes to £24.93 a guest.

The Castle Drinks Package @ £19.50/Guest offers far better value for you, saving you £5.43 over-stand alone rates.


  • On 70 guests you save £380 buying the Castle Drinks Package in preference to buying bottles individually.



Distribution by table size

If you have less than ten guests on some tables, the distribution of house wine is altered from 4 per table to, say, 3 per table, to provide no more than 20 bottles of table wine for 50 guests, or no more than one bottle per 2.5 guests.

If you wish to supply additional bottles of wine, these can be offered in addition, at the applicable cost for each extra bottle supplied.

Under our Drinks Packages we will provide bottles of wine on tables for guests, from which guests may serve themselves. Individual glasses of wine are not poured for guests and are not waitress-served or topped up during the meal.

You may upgrade to the Gold Drinks Package

or the Champagne Drinks Package if you prefer.

Wedding Tips: Wedding Toasts

Ensure all those who are giving speeches and toasts have prepared in advance and are aware of the timings and time allowed for their toast. When will you have the toasts - between which courses of the Wedding Breakfast?  How does the cake cutting ceremony fit in with the Toasts?
