we’re doing top shelf open bar for 5 of our 6 hour reception.  It will be open from 5-11, and it ends at midnight.  I did this by choice, so people would taper off, not bum rush the bar when they were supposed to be leaving, and give them a chance to gather things up to get on the bus.  Fiance wasnt happy about it at first but he gets it now.  His friends are biiiig partiers

We’re having an open bar the whole reception, which is only 4 hours. Now, when you say consumption, you mean where they charge you per drink, not per person right? Not that you are having a cash bar at the end? We have a consumption bar the whole night, it’s our only choice.

We’re having an open bar for the entire time following the ceremony until the we leave at 10:30.  The reception will actually continue on until 11pm, but no alcohol will be served after the 10:30 last call, for the same reasons as mentioned before.

We’re hoping that we have SOOO much left over…time will tell!

We have full open bar for cocktail hour and reception. It was part of our package, so we didn’t really have to make a decision.
