Ways to save on alcohol

by Tom
(Alabama)

I help run a wedding event venue and we are constantly asked how to decrease the total cost.


Have a limited open time for an open bar.

Have a signature drink as your only alcohol source.

Offer two different wines, two beers and that is it!

Keep water glasses full.
Do not have champaign. It is not enjoyed by many, and people will toast with whatever they have in their glass.

Use a coupon system to hand out to your guests.

Use house liquor.

Close the bar early... saves money and also keeps drivers safer.

Enjoy the wedding!
