Open Bar Tips

Open Bar Tips #weddingwisdom

Debating on an open bar for your wedding?! Well, we all know that could get costly and having a cash bar could ruin the mood of the whole event simply by being too controversial with guests.  So what do you do? Here are a few options that you can consider.

Full Open Bar – Endless supply for the night and endless $ tab!

Controlled Open Bar – Have the bar supplied with your favorite drinks for reception/cocktail hour by you or the venue. Once supply is gone, it’s gone!

Controlled Table Drinks – Maybe you are looking for a simpler option. Provide bottles of wine or champagne for each table to share.

Dry Wedding – Same rules apply above, use sparkling cider or non-alcoholic mixed drinks to still have fun!

But to be honest, guests are much happier when they simply have the option to go to the bar and get a drink. I mean who wouldn’t enjoy that!?


Ps… remember to ask your venue about their alcohol policies and if they have corkage fees*
