Drinks in Hired Venues
The bride and groom should confirm whether alcoholic beverages and soft drinks are provided in-house.
They should pay careful attention to the choice of wines and the price range of drinks on offer.
There is often a range of packages on offer, each with different price levels. Some packages allocate a specific number of drinks per head, with extra costs if this amount is exceeded on the day.
Other more expensive packages offer unlimited beer and wine. It is sometimes worth the extra investment to avoid unexpected extra costs.
Spirits and cocktails are expensive: most wedding couples only provide beer and wine.
A plentiful supply of soft drinks should be made readily available.
If couples are allowed to supply the drink themselves, it is important to check corkage fees; this is a hidden charge that can add considerably to costs.
