    We’re doing pretty glass decanters with a good red wine on each table. It will be pretty and give the wine time to breathe. All whites & other alcoholic beverages will be at the bar or brought around by servers. This was a good middle ground for us.

    we are doing consumption bar so to keep costs lower, we are offering wine service with dinner but the waitstaff will ask if they want white or red. If they want something else, the wait staff will get that for them, but guests won’t be going to the bar for drinks

    Wine service is usually NOT included with dinner unless you specify it. We assumed it was until I thought to ask about it in an idle conversation with our caterer and learned that during dinner, guests are expected to get up and get their own drinks if they want alcohol. The reasoning is that the servers are all busy serving tables (each table is served at once as a whole) so we had to add on extra servers to ensure wine service during dinner. It was a GREAT touch though and looking back, both DH and I are glad we did it. We had SO many compliments about the service and how it was excellent like a high-end restaurant. The extra servers not only handled wine services but general drink service at the tables (e.g. if someone also wanted a soda).
