There are many ways to limit alcohol and yet still offer an option to your guests with even the most frugal of budgets. To begin with, the first decision is whether to offer it on a Cash Bar basis (paid by the individual guest or having it host paid, by adding to your final bill. If you have decided to have your event with the alcohol and juice added to your bill here are some different ways to set up your selections without breaking the budget…
This is probably the most simple way to offer alcohol without breaking the budget. First, by limiting consumption to House Wine and/or Beer you are removing potential taste-testing by guests of specialty drinks that can become costly. In addition, keeping in mind there are typically four glasses per bottle of wine, you can set the maximum amount of bottles for wine and beer.
While many of the more sugary beverages tend to increase the thirst level of your guests, you can still have fun by adding some refreshing types of wine punch and limiting how many gallons you would like to offer ahead of time.
Often we find brides are hesitant in adding to the cost of a champagne or sparkling wine toast at their event. There are ways of cheering on the new couple or celebrating by adding a half pour of champagne or sparkling cider. If your budget is still too tight, no worries. Sparkling cider toasts are a great alternative.
