Bagged ice should work fine. Might want to make some room in your freezer to collect the bags over time.

Rubbermaid has some really good tips on their website. Google “keeping cooler cold longer” to find it. Most of their tips are like “no duh” things, but in the craziness that is your wedding they could be forgotten.

But I’ve heard that adding SALT to water, then adding ice keeps things cooler.
Here, found this:
This will help you to save $ on the bagged ice, and it will save a TON of room in your coolers, as well.

And never EVER freeze glass. I don’t care what any person or website says.
I can tell you from personal experience that no good can come of it.
