Apart from your wedding venue, dress, photographer (of course, cheeky self promotion here) your wedding reception bar will be the next popular element of your wedding. Not only for you, but your guests too.
Nobody likes it when the tequila is done by 21h00, so you want to make sure it is properly stocked and of course staffed. A general rule of thumb is allocated around 10 – 20% of your wedding budget for your bar (I know right!). This should cover all alcohol which includes mixers, garnishes, fees, tips, tools (those pesky bottle openers) and so on.
