    If it doesn’t cost you extra to have guests order what they prefer I’d go with that option. Not a fan of beer or wine but a cosmo or lemon drop martini would be nice.

    taylor19 :  Our venue was beer & wine only. We bought the wine at Trader Joe’s because they have great options and let you return unopened bottles!

     

    If you’re DIYing the bar, I would stick to signature drinks. Otherwise, you’re going to spend a ton on the mixers/herbs/soda/etc.

    Goodness, do not serve Long Islands- that’s an easy way to get your guests sloppy drunk, which nobody wants. I would stick with wine and beer and maybe a signature cocktail that is premixed (to prevent anyone with a heavy hand from imbibing a bit too much but also for practicality). My best friend did this, with the beer and wine on ice in a lidless cooler and the cocktail in a punch dispenser, and it worked out SO well!!!!

    taylor19 :  Is this a DIY bar? I might have missed that part. If so I would go with the above suggestion of beer, wine and one or two premixed cocktails. 😊

    Can you get anything better than Coors or Budweiser? 

    We had only local beers at our wedding and it was a huge hit.

    Don’t overthink this. If you’re doing local beers, you don’t need something like a coors (let them drink the good stuff not the crappy mainstream beers). Have a red. Have a white. Maybe 2 signature cocktails in drink dispensers. No need to go crazy- that’s how you’ll find yourself spending a ridiculous amount to please everyone. They’ll drink what you have for them. Free booze for them, happy dance floor.

    I drink either cosmos or vodka and cranberry at weddings.
