Have you thought about having a limited bar? Like just beer and whine? or just a few cocktails?

Rather than the tickets I would just do open bar for a certain amount of time. Like 1-2 hours and then it becomes cash bar. I assume the costs would be about the same as doing tickets.

Well i know that we are getting a pony keg of beer and 4 cases of wine from trader joes. We are just going with the Charles Shaw brand (AKA 2 Buck Chuck, although now it is like like $2.99 Chuck) This is for 100-120 people. We are estimating $120-140 for the pony keg and $150 for the wine.

I’d go with a limited bar over drink tickets.  Beer and wine.  Or Beer wine and a signature drink that involves on kind of (cheap possibly) liquor.

I don’t mind the drink tickets. I don’t think it’s tacky either. I’m just glad you let me drink something. Plus, the people who don’t drink can give them to those that do.

We’re doing a open, limited bar – a few beers, one white and one red wine, and our ‘signature’ drink which will have the Malibu rum and that’s it.  We’re having it open throughout the reception and close an hour before leaving.  I’m expecting around 140 people.
