    I don’t like the drink tickets idea but I think 3 drinks is reasonable.

    4 is not an option but that’s what I would do.  1 per hour! 4 tickets each

    Honestly, if the only reason you aren’t doing an open bar is because you don’t want the place to get trashed than I think you should just do the open bar. I’ve never seen people get so drunk that they trash the venue. 

    If you stick with the drink tickets I think 3 is enough.

    I once went to a “4/20 Meets Redneck” wedding (I swear to God) with an open bar.

    No one got wasted/did anything to embarass themselves! So I would probably just do the open bar.

    When I’m at a party, I’ll consume about a drink per hour but usually no more than 6. I like in a college town and am probably considered to the a heavier drinker though

    I would probably drink 4-6 but I’m a relatively heavy drinker.  I’d say 4 would be ideal, 1 per hour.

    @orchidblooms:  Wedding and liability insurance isn’t too expensive, it definitely sounds like a good idea! Ours was just over $150 for 24 hours.

    I know, i thought it would be so much more! THough I think it was just liability insurance. We didn’t see the ned to insure my dress or the rings or anything, our wedding wasn’t expensive enough 😛

    I think if you’re worried about damages I would purchase insurance instead of trying to limit alcohol consumption. Accidents happen whether or not alcohol is involved!
