Hey all, thinking about using this deal to get wine very cheaply for our reception.
You order online and it is only 25 for 75 worth of wine, but it is only available today.

The only thing I’m not sure of… we haven’t picked a caterer, so I don’t know if we’ll be able to bring in our own alcohol.
Did anyone bring their own alcohol/some of their own and still have a bartender… how did that work?
Anyone else order online for their alcohol?

We’re bringing our own wine in as well. Because we didn’t like their choices or the price of them. We’re both avid wine drinkers and know our stuff and we know we can get “good” wine for much less. The venue will still charge us a “corking fee” per bottle but even with that, we’re still saving a ton of money. I would check with your venue quick and find out what their rule is.

Yeah! Give them a quick call. That’s a great deal, but if they refuse to take outside food/beverages/alcohol, it might turn out to be a waste of money. Good luck!

the venue itself is fine with everything… I was more wondering about the caterer… do most of them supply bartenders even if you bring the alcohol?
what if we only get the wine and want them to bring the rest? has anyone every done that?

Make sure they ship to your state before you buy. They don’t ship to several.

At least for my caterer you aren’t allowed to provide some alcohol and have them bring the rest. They said that only 1 person on the premise can have a liquor license. I was hoping to have my caterers provide champagne and I’d bring wine and beer, but no dice.
