Bar options are one of the most confusing things to be agreed upon in a contract. Catering companies offer many different options for your wedding day, and sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish which option is best for you.Open Bar | With this option, the bar is stocked with everything needed to provide a night of fun and [lack of] memories. The bartenders keep a running tally of all drinks bought throughout the night, and an invoice is sent following the wedding reception.

Bar Tab | This option is very similar to the open bar, except that the bar invoice is paid in advance. The bartenders keep a running tally of all drinks bought and after the amount reaches the previously paid amount, the bar becomes a cash bar.

Cash Bar | Nothing is included with this option. Everyone pays for every drink, excluding soda and water.

Limited Bar | This option is pretty versatile. Some ways to offer a limited bar include:

  • Only open the bar for a certain amount of time
  • Pick beer, wine and signature cocktail options to offer for little or no cost
  • Only offer each guest (21+) a set amount of beverages at the bar

We hope this helps
