5 Things to Know If You Are Serving Alcohol at Your Wedding

Wedding reception and alcohol

One of the first decisions you’ll need to make when planning your wedding is whether or not to serve alcohol. Of course, there are pros and cons to serving alcohol at your wedding, so it’s essential to weigh all your options before deciding.

On the plus side, serving alcohol can help create a festive atmosphere and may make your guests more likely to let loose and enjoy themselves. If you’re worried about your guests getting bored or restless, offering a selection of alcoholic beverages can be an excellent way to keep them entertained. Additionally, serving alcohol can be a good way to ensure that your guests have enough to drink throughout the night.

Below are a few more things you need to be mindful of when serving alcohol on your big day.

·      Apply for a Permit

Depending on your state, you may need to apply for a permit to serve alcohol at your wedding. This is typically a simple process, and the fee is usually very reasonable.

 

·      Have Enough Non-Alcoholic Options

Make sure you have enough non-alcoholic options available for your guests who are not drinking or for those who are trying to stay sober for the night. No one likes to be left out, so offering a variety of beverages is vital.

 

·      Have Plans for Intoxicated Guests

Have a plan in place for dealing with intoxicated guests. You don’t want anyone to get hurt or cause any damage, so it’s important to have someone designated to keep an eye on things and ensure everyone is safe.

 

·      Be Mindful of Costs

Be aware of the costs associated with alcohol. Buying in bulk can save you a lot of money, but be sure to factor in taxes and tips when budgeting for your bar.

 

·      It’s a Responsibility

Keep in mind that serving alcohol at your wedding is a responsibility. Make sure you and your staff are up for the task and that everyone understands the importance of serving responsibly.
