Your caterer should be able to recommend a service that they’ve worked with.

@Zimmehh: Many caterers have them on staff. Who is doing your food?

It all depends on your venue also.  My venue doesn’t have a bar at it.  Our caterer is providing a bartender and I have to pay for whatever alcohol is brought in.  In my case we are doing beer and wine.  A red, white and zinfindel for wine and a bubbly muscato for the toast and a regular, light and ultra light beer option.  As my wedding is an afternoon wedding on St Patrick’s Day, the way I am doing it is open bar but when the booze is gone, its gone.  I am not going to ask the caterer to go and purchase more.  I don’t want people driving home after my wedding and getting pulled over…..
