Yummy mocktails for non-boozy (but very cool) wedding drink alternatives

So you're planning out your beverage strategy for your dry wedding, or your wedding with kids and future Offbeat Mamas, or just looking to offer some non-boozy alternatives. You can surely offer sodas and coffee, but why not make their experience a little more special with fancy-shmancy mocktails?
