Getting the Bar Right: Understanding Bar Options

Wedding Planning Tips


When planning your wedding bar, it’s essential to consider the three primary options: the beer and wine only setup, a full bar, or a modified version in between. While a full bar might sound appealing, opting for a professional bartending service and coordinating with your venue is advisable to avoid overspending and logistical headaches.

For those considering a beer and wine only affair, rest assured it’s a perfectly acceptable choice. Enhance the experience with a signature cocktail or two, a selection of craft beers, or a variety of wines to cater to different tastes.

When discussing your preferences with your partner, take into account your guest list and their preferences. Your decision should align with both your vision for the day and your budget constraints. Ultimately, finding the right balance ensures a memorable celebration for everyone involved.
