Full Bar vs. Beer and Wine at a Wedding

Let's Dish: How Would You Serve Drinks at Your Wedding?


Weddings are known for a few things: photos, tears, smiles, dancing, and lots of booze. I've been to my fair share of weddings with a full bar, but many people opt to serve just beer and wine. Both have their benefits and drawbacks (as well as significantly different price points). There's also the option to serve a signature cocktail for the evening, which can be a fun, creative part of a wedding. So we want to know what you think. How did you serve drinks at your wedding? If you haven't tied the knot yet, do you have a preference at weddings?

We are getting married in September. The champagne, wine, and beer will flow but nothing else. With our venue we must be out at 10pm due to noise ordinance. The party will move to a local rock n roll bar were people can drink to their hearts desire. Whatever liquor of their choosing.I feel like once we move locations people are on their own. Some will call it a night others will continue to party. I'm sure it will get crazy. I don't mind the crazy, just not at the wedding location. Ha!

From my wedding, we had great sparkling, wine and beer and no one was thirsty.

My fiancee and I are doing open beer and wine. Guests can pick any beer the place offers and we picked 2 really nice wines and a really good champagne.

We did an open full bar. Things got a little crazy but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Besides, our venue most definitely called for stiff cocktails. ;)

full bars are super expensive, but your guests will appreciate that more than spending an extra $1000 on floral arrangements. With that said, i think just beer and wine is fine. But cash bar is tacky.
