I am wondering how ice is done at outdoor weddings. Do people typically bring a freezer in or just buckets of ice? If they are buckets of ice will it melt fast? Our wedding is in September at a barn. There are outlets inside of the barn but we were thinking of just having big tin bins for ice for the bar and to keep the bottled beer cold. We also thought of having dry ice in a bin covered and then the ice cubes on top (with the dry ice keeping it cold)-not sure if this has ever been done before. This is a simple task but it seems like it can be overlooked and something could easily go wrong.
Any advice on this?
