The Alcohol Breakdown
Buying Alcohol For Your Wedding
When planning your wedding reception, one question always seems to make a couple stumble. How much alcohol should we order? Unfortunately there isn't a golden number, but we are here to offer some advice on how to manage your alcohol logistics.
I. KNOW YOUR CROWD
Take note of what your guests prefer to drink and who will indulge in the alcoholic beverages. If only half of your guests drink and prefer the taste of wine, then adjust accordingly and remove beer, tequila, etc. from the menu.
II. TYPES OF BARS
The three common types of wedding bars include, beer and wine only, full bar and something in between known as a modified full bar. Take a look at the bar breakdown below from A Practical Wedding:
III. LIABILITY INSURANCE
If you are providing the alcohol for your wedding, do your research. It's best practice to make sure you have all of your bases covered. There are plenty of insurance companies that specialize in this type of thing, and homeowners can usually put a rider on their homeowner's policy for the event.
