So I've been dabbling with the open bar aspect of a wedding, to be honest I dont really want one at my wedding (many recovering alcoholics in my family, mainly my dad) but my fiances side of the family like to celebrate by drinking (opposite to my side!) so I only feel its fair if I include at least alcoholic beverages at my wedding..

Has anyone ever done their own open bar? As in hired a friend to be the barmaid and gotten the alcohol yourself along with a license, etc.  I figured I could open the bar for free drinks (beer and wine, fruity drinks will always cost money) for an hour, and the rest of the night charge for drinks..

Is it worth it to do your own bar? With the expenses of the alcohol, the licence, the posibility of paying said friend, etc? (Or said friend could keep the tips she makes as a payment.. just some idea)

We had a summer wedding with a pay bar and an open icecream van. We put 200 behind the counter for it and 5 years later it's still talked about!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Yeah- I'm doing some research on the same topic myself, and like you, I'm catering to both recovering alchoholics and drinkers. I'm definitely making my own bar, not just because it's a money-saver, but I can have some fun with the menu. Here's a link that might help you out:
