We are supplying the alcohol for our open bar wedding. We are having a fall themed wedding and are debating having kegs or just bottles or cans.
Debating what is better. Kegs, bottles, cans…???
Our friends are lushes, to be quite honest and we aren’t going overboard on our alcohol supply, due to the fact that we fear our wedding will be a gigantic drunkfest if we do.
I want it to stay classy and fun, and cost efficient without seeming too cheap.

Bottles. You’ll have better control over how much is drunk. Are you getting real beer or the Miller Lite variety? If you go for miller lite, the cost will be low no matter what, and people won’t get drunk cause it’s low in alcohol.
You could get some pumpkin beer…that would be fun.
Are you going to have liquor and wine?

@peachacid: yes we are having well liquors (vodka rum tequila gin) and a little crown and a few flavored vodkas. but not many bottles of each. also i am making spiked apple cider to go with the fall theme.
i thought about pumpkin beer. my fiance and i love it and think it would be very festive. 🙂
probably miller lite or budlight is the way to go in bottles because you are right, the alcohol content is less. maybe some guiness too (since it’s low in alcohol content)… and maybe corona or budlight lime??

@BrideBrookie: All of those beers are awful. If you like pumpkin beer, then find a local place that makes it, and get some pale ale. If you’re worried about everyone getting shitty, have the bar tender “disappear” strategically through the night to slow down your fast drinking friends.

Financially, oz to oz, kegs are cheaper. And when a keg runs out, it’s gone. If you want to maintain, you could do just wine and beer so no shots are consumed, but a lively crowd will find a way to be lively, even if they are drinking a keg or slamming bottles of miller lite.

@peachacid: oh believe me, i am anti- any lite beer for myself. I think they’re disgusting. but most of our friends are cheap and enjoy those disgusting budlights. ahah. they might go down too fast, however…
maybe i should fill the vodka and gin bottles up with water 😀
