Wedding Cocktail Food Must Knows!

By Food No Comments

I find that lots of venue and vendors like to cut your wedding costs by reducing cocktail hour food. This concerns me as people drink more during cocktail hour and are more likely to do so on an empty stomach. Once you get going the crowd is more likely to get wasted more quickly.

In determining how much food to serve for cocktail hour, you’ll want to consider how long it will last for. Cocktail hours last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.

After watching this short video you will be well prepared, no matter how long your wedding cocktail hour lasts and your guests will be happy and walking straight.

Tips for Buying Alcohol for Your Wedding Bar

By The Bar No Comments

If you’re buying the alcohol for your wedding bar, then this is a must watch video. You can easily under buy or overspend if you don’t know anything about beverage consumption.

This post’s video is dedicated to breaking down how much alcohol to buy if you’re supplying the booze for your wedding bar.

Things you’ll want to keep in mind as you view the video:

  • Quantities are based on 100 guests, so adjust accordingly
  • You know your guests the best, so buy extra of anything that are crowd favorites
  • If you’re only having beer and wine, double or triple that quantities given to be safe
