Wedding Celebrations with Modern Flair
Molson Canadian 67 keeps it light cool from the engagement to bachelor party
It’s wedding season, and for today’s modern, active couple the days of overindulgent, over-the-top traditions are long gone. They want a celebration that reflects who they are. Casual, yet experience-rich parties with unexpected drink choices like light beer cocktails make all things wedding easy to enjoy while keeping couples on track to looking their best on the big day.
Molson Canadian 67 and Tara O’Grady, a wedding expert and owner of Toronto-based Bliss Events, have created four fun, stylish pre-wedding celebration themes showcasing a variety of low-calorie cocktails that are anything but traditional. From the engagement celebration to the bridal party, Molson Canadian 67 is a great fit for every occasion. Specially brewed to only 67 calories per bottle, it means lighter food and drink choices can be made easily without sacrificing living well to get there.
THE BACKYARD BARBECUE: Engagement Party or Stag & Doe
A quintessential Canadian experience is the backyard barbecue, and for the casual couple who loves the outdoors, an engagement party or stag and doe spent in the backyard makes for an easy, down-to-earth celebration. While mingling, guests snack on mini burgers on whole wheat buns, healthy bean salsa with multigrain tortilla chips and whole wheat soft pretzels with Dijon mustard.

As the wedding approaches, grooms-to-be seeking relaxation can get away from it all on a weekend fishing trip. Health-conscious food and drink choices will reduce indulging in pre-packaged snacks and keep grooms who want to feel confident on the big day looking great. Fresh grilled fish seasoned with lemon, assorted vegetables and baked Yukon Gold frites make for a hearty, energizing meal after a day spent in the fresh air, and dark chocolate s’mores melted over the campfire are a sweet finishing touch.
