So I was going over the budget today and I realized that I am quite literally spending twice as much on booze as I am food.
You know you are having a French, Irish and Sailor filled wedding when that happens. That said food/ booze comes to $18 per person. We are only having beer and wine though.

We spent 10.75pp on booze and 15.29pp on food. No one cared that we went the cheap route on food when we had an open bar. Our families come more for the booze than the food at a wedding. I don’t want to know how many bottles of whiskey we went through.. lol. But the bartender did tell us he went through more booze at our wedding than he did at weddings twice our size. I call it getting our money’s worth!

Yeah, when we realized that our venue is charging WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much for booze, meaning that open bar for beer/wine/well liquor is TWICE as much as our catering + s’mores bar + cupcakes, I was like, “Yeeeeeeeah no.” We’re going to do consumption service for beer + wine instead.

@Mrscdnnavywife: Wow, how many glasses of beer and wine are you having per person at that cost?
We lucked out. We are doing an american food station (burgers, mac & chees, etc) a mexican food station (tacos, quesadillas, etc), a fresh salad bar and soups for only $23 per person (our venue is not a normal wedding venue…so prices are really reasonable) and we can bring in our own alcohol. Our friend own’s a liquour store so we are paying the at cost price. Our alcohol will be about $8 per person for 4 drinks per person.

@bmo88: Well we have 4 kegs of beer and two cases of red, 2 cases of white for 100 people.
Our food is about $6- $8 pp for a burger bar and appies etc. My mom and I made most of the food so costs are super resonable. Believe me were are having a ton of really yummy food.
Our families and friends really like to drink, and the reception is probably going to go untill 12 ish (it starts at 5).
