Wondering what you are doing with regard to alcoholic beverages. For us an open bar all night is completly out of the question. Too expensive, and our friends will certaintly drink too much!
Should we go for two bottles of wine on each table? Or have bar staff offer everyone a glass of wine while they’re seated for dinner?
What is everyone here doing with regards to alcohol?

I feel that this is just silly. There are so many people on here who say don´t overspend on your wedding, don´t go in to debt, but then you´re saying, but you must buy us drinks. I think you should do what you can for your guests, and that is all, if they really care about you they will not be offended and if they don´t care about you why are they there? But I guess where I am from it is a little different. I think I´ve only been to one wedding that was a complete open bar, the rest did offer a few free kegs or maybe a specialty drink, which I thought was nice, but not expected. I always bring cash to a wedding and expect to pay for my drinks, I am being provided a night of dancing and fun as well as a free meal, I think that is enough because I care more about the couple than what they provide me.

We considered not having any alcohol at all because neither of us drink, but, it was important to my dad. It’s quite common around here to have a cash bar, so that’s what we are doing.
If we were to have an open bar it would double our venue/catering costs, and we just can’t afford that. So it was either cash bar or no bar for us.
