Wedding Tip 08 – Open Bar Alternatives

Most venues will provide couples with bar packages and options if an open bar doesn’t fit into the budget, but don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.

Create 1-2 signature cocktails – think “His and Her” or “Mr. and Mrs.” – and make them available to guests during the party. This will cut down on the cost of stocking a full bar with drinks guests may not be interested in otherwise.

Alternatively, inquire whether your venue allows you to bring your own alcohol. Head to stores like Costco or BevMo and purchase bulk cases of local craft brews or your favorite beer. It’s your day, guests will be happy to celebrate with you no matter what!
