Limit The Alcohol
“There are multiple ways to save on alcohol, which is one of the larger costs at a wedding,” says Cragg. “You can hand out tickets to guests, lets say three each, so that they can have alcohol on your tab but not get completely intoxicated. Instead of having wine wasted by being at each table, have it at the bar, or have the servers pour it. For the reception, another way to save money on alcohol would be to limit your bar. Don’t have every single beer and whisky available. If you really want to cut costs, limit yourself to two or three types of beer and wine.”
