We can’t decide between a full bar or a “brunch bar” so to speak with bloody marys, mimosas, wine, champagne, etc.
The wedding is during the day, so we don’t know if people are going to really drink. It will be quite a young crowd. (low-mid 20’s) for the most part. Opinions?

I don’t think it’s necessary. I personally don’t know anyone who drinks any alcohol at all during the daytime even though they will drink with no issues at an evening wedding. As a guest, I would never expect to be served any alcohol during the daytime.

I would be super stoked at a brunch bar–if you’re going to get day drunk, brunch drinks are how to do it. A full bar would probably not be as utilized (or as awesome) as a brunch bar. I want to go to a brunch bar RIGHT NOW.

I had an afternoon wedding and served beer and wine bar, rather than open bar. Most people had at least a couple drinks, but I doubt anyone would have wanted hard liquor, so open bar would have been a waste. I think you should go with the brunch bar or beer and wine to give people light alcohol options

The brunch bar sounds good to me! Seems like that would cover all the drinks people usually enjoy during the day.

Just had to come back and say that I am still jonesing for a brunch bar.

- Wedding: June 2010 - New York Botanical Garden
I think you should go with what feels right to you, but I will just put in that my wedding was 11 – 5ish and man did everyone drink – tequila shots were flowing like water, and people almost always had a glass of something! I mean, our guests do drink, but this was a lot even for them – it was a wedding/party time! It didn’t matter day or night :). I think a brunch bar sounds lovely and that people will really enjoy that too – I just wanted to put in that timing may not matter, depending on your crowd :).
Edit: you know your crowd best – I would love a brunch bar wedding, but I knew my friends would be very excited by an open bar ;).
