I say you pick whatever place you want (taking into consideration, but not prioritizing, alcohol prices).  When you find the place you like bring the price list to the parents and tell them “If you would like to host a bar here are the prices for doing so. If you feel it is too expensive, we unfortunately cannot afford to host an open bar and will be having a dry wedding.”

Another option would be to offer one signature drink to keep alcohol prices down but still appease those who want to drink.

Oh and I just saw your comment on a non-alcoholic bar, I love that idea! I am over 21 but don’t really enjoy the taste of alcohol so I would love to have a lot of non-alcoholic options! Any alcoholic drink can be made virgin so it would be pretty easy.

Afterglow- orange juice, pineapple juice, grenadine

Apple Frazzle- apple juice, sugar syrup, lemon juice, sparkling water

Baby Bellini- cider, peach nectar, lemon jice

Chicago Lemonade- 7-up, soda water, sugar syrup, lemon

etc..

As long as you are the ones paying for the majority of the wedding, then I say that Babyboo is a genius.  If not, it may get a little stickier.  Usually, when it comes down to things not fitting into the budget, it helps to show parents a breakdown of the costs.  Cause its easier to think “I can make it all fit” until you actually try to!
