I know…I know…Kegs at a wedding is a huge topic of debate.
But, we are going for it. Our wedding is beachy, rustic and eco friendly. We are having everyone use mason jars as their glass for the evening…and thats where the self serve kegs come in.
However, I do NOT want them in big ugly trash cans full of ice to keep them cold.
Any ideas how to keep them cold and yet not quite as ugly? Somehow tie them in with the decor?
Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!

The only suggestion I have is to buy something insluated like these http://www.beertaps.com/kegkeepers.html they have them in pink!

You can use cloth tablecloths to wrap the cans in – lay them out all opened up, put the can or container in the center and pull the corners up and tuck them into the can. You can pleat it a few different ways. Then fill with your ice and drop in the keg.
It works best with white or black linen – since it will get totally soaked they look the most even when that happens.
I’ve had weddings use old clawfoot bathtubs that were cleaned out, and big galvanized tubs – as logn as those are clean, no liner needed.
Good luck 🙂

As a bartender, when Kegs are ordered for a wedding or special event, we get the same linens used on tables, put them Keg into garbage can full of ICE, then wrap the can with the linens and tuck into the sides, then take a second linen and wrap the top so all you see is the pump and the tap!

You can get those really big buckets from probably walmart or target or menards or something

You can get tubs at any farm supply store or many home stores.
You can pretty them up with a keg corset

We had two kegs at our wedding. One was inside a keg fridge (my in-laws own one and let us use it) and the other was in a bucket with ice, wrapped in a tablecloth as mentioned above. It worked well!
