Bar

What are you all doing about drinks? Open Bar? Cash Bar? I am planning on buying all the alcohol that will be served. Does anyone know where you can buy it in bulk for a good price?

    Your local board will probably have a better idea of locations. There's a liquor store around us that has great deals on bulk alcohol, so there might be something similar around you. 
    We're going to do some form of open bar - might just be wine and beer, or it might be full, we haven't quite figured it out yet.

  • I am for sure doing a cash bar. I haven't decided if I want to do beer/wine or a full bar. We are getting married in Vegas so I know there are a few places nearby that sell alcohol in bulk that I would use.

    We're doing a limited bar and serving beer and wine (unless we come into a financial windfall, in which case I want to open the bar).
  • Full open bar. People spend so much money and take time off to spend your big day with you. It's the right thing to do.

  • We are doing open bar with beer and wine, no questions. Around here it's very infrequent you find a cash bar.

  • We're also doing a full open bar; which is part of the reason FI really liked our venue!

    If you have a trader joes around you I hear but don't quote me that if you get alcohol through them, whatever you don't use/open you can return to them and get money back. But don't quote me. Also places like meijer for wine offer percentages off so many bottles and or cases I believe. Also I know wineries around us, if you go through them buying bottles you get a discount of so much off depending how much you buy.

  • Thanks! I am currently planning on having a Stock The Bar party. If you haven't heard of it you have a party a month or so before the wedding .All your guest bring over either a bottle of wine or some other type of bottle of alcohol or beer. All the alcohol we receive that night we will use for our bar. My FI and I have family and friends that really like to drink so it isn't realistic for us to buy it all.

  • We're doing a full open bar. We both come from big drinking families, so an open bar was important to us.
  • Just beer / soda for us. Venue does not have a stocked bar so we are just doing beer
  • I'm having an open bar. I didn't want my guests to have to pay

  • Our venue has a monstrous food and drink minimum and we're having a small wedding so we had to have an open bar just to come close to the min! Although that being said, we'd have sprung for the open bar anyways.
