I understand your desire to keep some people from going overboard, but this will just come off as you being cheap. Having worked as a bartender in grad school I can tell you that they are trained to know when to cut someone off. If you are particularly worried about certain people you could have someone point out those people to the bartender so that he/she knows who to particularly watch out for.

i like your idea! i feel like 5 tickets per person is a lot… keep in mind these people have to get home! and since grandma probably won’t use all of hers, they will get passed on to other. but in general i like your idea because people can’t get sloshed, aand it will help cut down on your costs vs. if you just had an OPEN open bar.

@blg529: What would you suggest someone do if they cannot afford to have an open bar? I can pretty much ONLY afford 2 drinks per person.

I’ve gone to weddings where there have been drink tickets, and it worked out fine,  one I went to had it set up that you bought drink tickets, which then bought you booze everyone loved it because it made it so much cheaper to drink

What about having some restrictions? For example, my venue will not allow shots.  I’m not worried about any of my guests going overboard, but I know that for a lot of people, they’ll go overboard when they drink a lot in a short amount of time (shots!).
