Unique Wedding Ideas
Island Orchard Cider is like champagne, though not too sweet and a bit less bubbly.
Our hand-crafted small-batch hard ciders are nothing like the typical mass-produced cider products advertised on TV. Our ciders are organic and gluten-free with 6.9% alcohol by volume and bottled (in special glass bottles) at our Cider House in Ellison Bay. They are a stylish, welcome change from the traditional champagne toast and a perfect complement to your wedding day meal.
Having an after the wedding luncheon, brunch or gift opening? Our ciders pair well with just about anything you can put on a plate, as well as in many dishes (check out our recipe blog for ideas)! For a beverage with a bit more punch, try our Cider Sangria Punch or enjoy the aroma indoors with our Warm Spiced Apple Cider; perfect for a fall or winter gathering!
All hard ciders are available in our classic Island Orchard Cider wine bottles or on draft. Tell your event planner where to find your favorites for your special day!
Not sure if Island Orchard Cider is for you? Try it first! Here are a few ideas.
- Purchase a bottle and have a nice dinner with your fiancé. Island Orchard Cider is perfect for a candlelit dinner for two! It is sold throughout Wisconsin. Find a bottle or two near you!
- Purchase a few bottles (we recommend all 4 flavors) for your bridal shower! It’s a great way to sample our ciders before your big day. We are confident you’ll find it suitable for formal and casual events alike. Find our ciders throughout Wisconsin
- Looking for a great idea for a Bachelorette party? Plan a trip to Door County! Enjoy the shops and sightseeing, or just kick back and relax. Either way, be sure to visit our Cider House in Ellison Bay. You’ll have a chance to sample all flavors and have a great little getaway to boot! Of course, you could plan a family trip instead, but this trip has “girls weekend” written all over it!

My husband and I married in October. Instead of a traditional champagne toast, we decided on Island Orchard’s Brut Apple cider. I am so glad we did! The dry flavor and crispness is superior to champagne’s tendency to be too sweet, and it fit right in with our down-to-earth October wedding. We had a bottle sitting on each guest table at the reception, as well as a number on our head table. Our guests loved the unique bottles; many asked if they could take the bottle home after the festivities. We also gifted a few unopened bottles to family and close friends, which made a perfect “thanks for everything!” gesture of appreciation. I recommend Island Orchard Cider to any bride that wants to add a little autumn, country-cottage twist to the traditional champagne toast. You won’t regret it! ~ Krystal Esty
