Your New Orleans wedding is supposed to be fun and joyful – and not just for you, but for all the amazing people who have chosen to spend their time with you on this special day. Of course, you want to create the best ambiance at your wedding, and you want to delight your guests with the most amazing Southern foods as well.

But what about the drinks? What kind of drinks should you serve at your wedding? And how much of it should there be?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • The open bar. This is a classic – but it’s also the most expensive option you have. If your budget is quite generous, having an open bar means that your guests can drink whatever they want, how much they want to (and you will pay a flat fee per person).
  • Beer and wine. Despite the popular belief, serving just beer and wine at your wedding can actually work out very well – and no, it isn’t tacky (it would actually be tackier to ask your guests to pay for their drinks). Even more, if you serve a good variety of beers and wines, your guests are bound to be more than happy with the drinks.
  • Signature cocktail. Want to add something special to your beer and wine bar? One or two signature cocktails can do the trick without pushing your bill over the limit. The great thing about this is that you can actually choose a cocktail that suits your style and your wedding – so it can look perfectly incorporated into the general wedding theme.
  • Unless you decide to go completely alcohol-free (which is also an option), the drinks available at your wedding should be plentiful. Expect people to get about 1-2 drinks during the cocktail hour and then 1 drink/ hour during the reception – so take this into consideration when planning your wedding bar.
