Any ideas on what we could do with all of the drinks at our backyard wedding? My fmil wants to turn the hot tub into a giant cooler with all the ice and drinks. I’m not sure if I’m ok with that. Any thoughts?

Have you thought about getting some of those large metal buckets and maybe doing a few smaller versions of FMIL’s plan? I think a hot tub would require way too much ice to make up for the depth but shallow buckets have the same effect with less ice. Also, can oyu stock the fridge with back ups and then just bring the beverages out cold?

I agree…I would do the galvanized buckets. Or you can get the tubs.

I agree with the tubs, sounds like it would look great. I’d put back ups in the bath tub (with ice), keep the fridge free for food 🙂

THis might be a little out there, but how about a wheelbarrel full of ice? Then you can put all your drinks inside and it looks cool/a little unique! At our wedding we’re probably doing one full of ice and drinks and another one full of coute a te (can’t spell that one sorry)

My venue uses an old row-boat filled with ice. I think you would totally get creative with this, perhapes do a little yard-sale shopping to see if you find any fun containers that would work with you vision?

I agree with the galvanized tubs or rowboats or other creative buckets of ice. I am not sure where your location is, but if you are in New England you can get those big galvanized buckets for super cheap (I think $3/bucket or something crazy like that) at Christmas Tree Shops.

I was going to suggest Christmas Tree Store too. Last time I was there I didn’t see the galvanized ones but I got plastic ones for after our ceremony for water bottles. They were $4 each! Lots of colors too.

Okay, this may be too hokey for a wedding, but I love using a kiddy pool and filling it with ice and beverages. It looks cute; the beverages are easy to see….it’s always a hit when we do it. But depending upon the vibe you are going for it may not work……
