For those of you with a venue that allowed you to bring your own alcohol, how far in advance did you purchase it? We’re planning to do two signature drinks and I would like to be able to plan when to buy everything but I have no clue! Also…if you bought in advance, where did you store it? My house is being taken over by wedding stuff and I feel like I dont have anywhere to put it! lol

@autumnlynnhill: Where I live alcohol does not go on sale. So we got it the day before the wedding.
This is something you can really leave til the last minute, since it is alwasy readily available, and can take up a lot of space to store.

We got ours a week before only because we lived in a different state then where we got married 5 hours away and were planning on being in the area for the wedding 3 days before. I think my DH did an order in advance though and just had to pick it up when he was ready.

We planned the wedding from out of state, so we bought the liquor two days before when we got into town. Our venue let us store the liquor there, so we didn’t have to worry about the logistics of storing it in the hotel or dealing with it the day before.

@autumnlynnhill: We’re doing a limited open bar: limited pop, juice, and mixer options w/ the basics of a small variety or liquors and beer and wine.
I live in the smallest 1 bedroom apartment that you can think of, and I’m going to buy my liquor about a month in advance. My venue may allow me to store some of it, but I’m not banking on it.
It might be better for me to wait, but I get stressed out very easily and I want to have as MUCH of the wedding stuff stockpiled and ready to go before the month of the wedding. A lot of family & friends are coming in and staying with our whole family, and I will not be able to function knowing that we have loose ends yet to tie.
