There are many ways to quench your guests' thirst other than (or in addition to!) a standard bar. Perhaps the most common way is a simple table set up at the wedding ceremony. Especially if your ceremony is running late, your guests will thank you!
Bins provide another opportunity for self-serve drinks and can range from simple to chic!
You can also create a self-serve bar for soirees that won't include a bartender.
Use these ideas plus your own to create the perfect beverage station that fits your party, shower or wedding!
