Good morning everyone!
My FH and I are planning a brunch wedding for Feb 2019. Given that it’s brunch and that the price of open bar is too high for our budget (50$ pp), we are considering other alternatives for our bar options, such as paying for a specific amount of alcohol or paying for our guests to have unlimited amounts of “signature drinks” (ex: Bloody Caesar and another drink, maybe like an orange juice-based one).
What have your experiences been with that kind of arrangement, either as guests or as the bride/groom?
It would depend on the amount of money that it would come out to and guests’ drinking habits of course, but did you find that the “money” ran out quickly and guests were forced to pay for their own drinks rather quickly or did people pretty much stick to the signature cocktails and enjoy themselves?
And if you wouldn’t mind sharing, how much did either of these bar alternatives come out for you? We’re trying to gauge how much budget to allocate for this part...
thank you so much in advance and happy planning to you all!!
