Keep your bar budget in check with these creative options!

You want everybody to have a great time celebrating at your reception. But the last thing you want is to have the alcohol budget — or your guests — to get out of control. How do you keep the bar tab in check while still encouraging guests to enjoy themselves in moderation?


It’s a delicate balance, but we’ve got some great options for you to consider when planning your reception refreshments.


1,3. Treat guests to a complimentary “cheers” on the newlyweds with one of these cute little drink tickets.  Print the tickets with a fun design and your names in an ink color that matches your wedding and tuck the cards under the ribbons on your favor boxes or present them in sweet, sheer little envelopes.  This can be a way encourage guests to have only one drink at your reception, or a way to treat guests to a free drink if you’re having a cash bar.


2. Work with your reception site’s bar manager to create a drink menu that matches your wedding season and theme. Print the menu on menu cards  and have these drinks available to guests free of charge during a set time period, like during your social hour or during the dinner hour. Only offering drinks during limited time can be a great way to control your alcohol budget. If you’d like to continue offering drinks to guests, you can offer free wine and beer afterward, or open up a cash bar after the free drink hour is over.


3. Create a signature drink that matches your wedding theme and colors and ask circulating servers to offer it to guests from trays. Doing this will make sure your guests are served efficiently and that no one will have to stand in the endless line at the bar. As a fun touch, print cocktail napkins with your signature drink recipe. Again, you can have your signature drink be the only alcohol option, or you can open up a cash bar after these drinks are circulated.

your wedding budget feeling stretched because of all the things you think you
"should" include in your celebration? Well, consider doing away with
these three "shoulds" and let your budget take a breather!

cloth linens at your reception tables.

only $28 per 100), and they're just as lovely as cloth napkins! Napkins are
available in colors sure to match your table linens and best of all, they're

guests to elaborate favors to thank them for celebrating with you.

Budget Saver: Even the simplest wedding favors
— like our classic favor box (just $18 per 50) filled with yummy treats — will tell guests you appreciate
them. If you fall in love with a more elaborate favor, consider giving one
favor per couple and check out our stylish wedding favor boxes!

Should #3: You should hire a
calligrapher to address your invitation envelopes, or you should learn
calligraphy and address your envelopes yourself.

Budget Saver: Using Jean M's Customized

presentation will get guests talking and enjoying. Add a petite round
