We are getting married in April at Chestnut Square in McKinney. Since the venue allows you to bring in your own alcohol we had planned on getting wine/beer from Costco (We are paying for the wedding ourselves and trying to cut costs where ever possible). The problem is that we need someone to act as the bartender for the night. Have any of you used a bartender service? I have been to a few weddings where they had a friend of the family act as their bartender. What do you think of that, and how do you approach the person about the topic?
(Also, if you've had your wedding at Chestnut and have any fun tips or decor ideas i'd love to hear them!)
