@sunkissed19:  If you go for the Gold Standard Top Shelf, does that also include the brands listed under the Gold Standard Premium? (forgive my ignorance if that’s a stupid question; I’m from the UK and we don’t have open bar packages over here) If so, I’d probably try to stretch to the Top Shelf unless if meant making huge cuts elsewhere. Otherwise, I think the Premium package is fine; I actually much prefer Tanqueray gin to Bombay Sapphire.

@sunkissed19:  Silver Standard is fine.  They are all above normal well brands. if you’re going to spend the extra money do the Gold Standard Premium.  I wouldn’t do top shelf because most guests won’t appreciate it to be honest and the ones that really want it won’t mind paying extra to get it at the bar.

@sunkissed19:  Glad I’m not just being thick lol.

 

Personally I wouldn’t go for the silver, but I really think it depends on your guests. I personally know a lot of people who wouldn’t only not drink, say, Jim Beam or Grants, but would actually not drink spirits at all if they were the only options. But, that’s just my friends/social circle; so I think you should base it on your own personal guest list. I think it also depends on whether guests can purchase the better brands themselves; if so, the silver package is probably OK as that way the fussier guests can simply pay if they’d prefer more premium brands.

I’d go with silver! None of our guests are “label” drinkers, and it would be a waste to pay the extra for it. depends on your guests, but if most of them drink like you guys and you’d be happy with silver, go with that and save some $!

I’d do silver, myself. We did a free bar and there was so much wastage.. our guests would have been happy with much less.

I would go for the silver also. I doubt anyone would notice a difference between that and the gold. If I were a guest, I would simply appreciate the fact that I was graciously being offered something to drink, regardless of the label.
