HELLO LADIES!!!! My fiance and I are under a strict budget… And his large Russian-Jewish family would really like to be able to bring in their own liquor in order to have their bottles on the tables, in addition to the open bar… Now I’ve heard from MOST of the venues that we’ve contacted that they do not allow you to bring in liquor (for license reasons… of course), but are willing to work with us to a point… So I’m asking all of my fellow Russian brides out there…. PLEASE HELP!!! I have heard Glen Sanders will let you do it… But I really need to try to keep it at or around $60/person. I’d also like more options than JUST Glen Sanders… ya know…??
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks ladies!!!

I’m not in your area, but we ended up choosing a Russian restaurant. I’m fairly certain we can only get away with liquor on the table because liquor laws are different for restaurants than function halls. They’re also allowing us to supplement the alcohol included in their banquet menu with our own.
Also, the price ends up being very reasonable for the Boston area. If there are no Russian restaurants in your area, you can try looking for any restaurant that has a banquet/function room and ask if they’d let you bring in some of your own alcohol.

we paid extra to our caterers so that their insurers would cover liquor on the tables – it was an extra $500 but well worth it to make my father happy – actual quote “I am ashamed to invite people to a wedding where there isnt vodka on the tables!”
