We had 110 guests (only 3 kids) and had an open bar for 1 hour for our brunch wedding. Ended up costing over $1400 since we had a champagne bar, and that doesn’t include the wine served table-side during the meal. Each drink was $12, unless they wanted top shelf.. then it was $16 each, though nobody got those until it became a cash bar so I’m happy about that.
We definitely did not expect to spend so much, nor did the bartender expect to be so busy.. The restaurant only had one guy working the whole event!

we did an open bar for about 50 people on a Sunday afternoon. Took our chances on running a tab rather than paying flat rate of $23. Bill was less than $700.

We’re having 60 day guests who will get 2 welcome drinks, 1/2 bottles of wine, 1 glass of champagne, and water, and 100 evening guests (money will be put behind the bar and restricted to certain drinks, and when it goes, it goes).
Total cost is 7k.
