One big decision every couple faces during reception planning is alcohol or no alcohol. Unfortunately, it’s usually not an easy Yes or No question. Most venues or caterers will offer numerous different options – full open bar with different tiers of liquor brands; beer, wine, and a custom cocktail; beer and wine; beer or wine; or maybe just a champagne toast. The cost of a bar can add up quickly and if you are working with a strict budget it is definitely an area that can be tweaked to accommodate your wallet. While it may be tempting to have a cash bar, try to work with the venue/caterer to avoid this option – even if it’s just offering beer and/or wine for your guests.
