    We’re doing beer and wine with a byob option for the on site after party.

    I figure the majority of our friends will outlast our traditional guests and the high quantities of alcohol that we can afford, so it’s byob lik all the other field parties that we all have.

    We are doing a full open bar.  We were just going to do beer and wine…but as the bride I don’t drink either of those.  And I don’t want to have cash on me to buy a drink at my own wedding.  So, open bar it is!

    We paid for a full, open bar. It was actually included in the cost per head at our reception venue though (our cost per head was only $30-$32) so that was awesome. If we had gone with a different venue though, I don’t think we would have been able to afford something like a full bar. Although I wouldn’t have ever wanted to go with the guests paying for their own drinks. If I couldn’t afford to pay for all of the guests, I think we would have decided to just make it a small, intimate, immediate kind of family thing.

    Open bar works out so much easier!

    We’re doing a limited bar …. two types of beer, two types of wine and three signature drinks (only using gin or vodka). We’re putting about $2K behind the bar and after that, I guess it will become cash. Our venue goes on consumption and drinks range from $4-$7, so I think $2k should be more than enough for around 100 people…
