How can we cut costs for our reception?

Saving Money on Alcohol

Want to have something stronger than soft drinks at your wedding but are watching your pennies? Try one of these approaches:

  • If you don't have to buy your alcohol from the venue where you're having your reception, buy your own---you'll get it cheaper and be able to pick out what you want.
  • Have a limited bar as opposed to an open bar.
  • Cut back on the number of different kinds of liquor you provide---nix the mixed drinks, have champagne only for the toasting, and then serve one each of basic wines (red, white and blush) and one or two kinds of beer.
