Are you having a caterer?

Most caterers, if not all, can provide a staging area with ice and barware for your drinks. Also, there are places that you can hire to just serve the drinks for you and they will set it all up for you. For example, http://www.pourgirls.com/index.htm is a place in our area that will come and set up everything and serve it too. I know they aren’t near you, but you might check into something like them around where you are to see if they can accommodate you.

We didn’t have a bartender and it was fine but I will tell you what my experience is. You need to get ONE person SPECIFICALLY and make them in charge of the drinks getting there and being cold that day–an uncle maybe, or a close friend of the family, or if you have a large wedding party one of them. It shouldn’t be too hard to gather some coolers and you can usually gain get drink tubs for under ten dollars if you want to go fancier. One thing you might want to consider is a creative way to serve it. For example we got a red wheelbarrow (about $40) and filled it with ice. But my best advice and I truly truly hope you take it is to be very specific in delegating. With that you should be fine.
