Our venue is allowing us to have an open bar as long as someone is serving the alcohol/beer with that being said I am having a difficult time thinking of ways to place 600 to 800 beer cans during the wedding. I have tried to Google ideas and I think I am using wrong words and it’s not bringing up what I’m looking for. How did you married bees store this at your wedding? How are brides planning on storing?
I’m having a country/rustic type of wedding indoors
I would love to see pictures!!!

What about a keg? It’s self contained, easy to use and is probably a cheaper option than buying all that individual beer. Or renting a refridgerator? You can rent them very cheap from places like Aaron’s (a nationwide chain that rents out furniture, appliances etc) I’ve seen brides use boats/canoes to store the beer, that would be good for a rustic country wedding.. Other than that.. besides getting a bunch of large coolers, I don’t know what else you could do.

@ThunderStruck: I also agree a keg is a much better option here. It’s much cheaper. We borrowed a machine from a friend that we hooked up to the keg for pouring, but I bet you can find them to rent.

What about a galvenized tub used for animal feed (new of course). You can decorate it however you want, they come in many different sizes AND if you like to garden you can turn it into a garden/flower bed after the wedding!
Something like this

@littlemisst08: I thought a keg would be cheaper as well. But after doing some major research and asking around I found that beer cans are cheaper. I am actually using plastic cups and you can only imagine how people would go thru them and wouldn’t worry to much about re-using the same cup like I would. Also the beer left in the keg goes bad after so long whereas if we used cans we could take them home or give them away.
@Bazinga: You know I have seen these at a wedding I went to before and I wonder if we could rent these?

I bet you could rent them, while searching for a good pic of one I noticed one of the pictures was actually from a rental place.
Call around your area & check it out! See I’d love to just buy them and use to plant veggies in after!

I’ve seen really cute pictures of wheelbarrows full of ice with beer in the them. If you know a few people who have one, that might cover it.

I know our local grocery store is now selling wooden barrels (from wine or whiskey) cut in half. If you lined them with a black tarp/trashbag, you could fill it with ice and beer, which should fit your vibe.
A lot of people use them for flower planters, so you could use them after the wedding too.
