  • Use smaller glasses for your toast – and for your general drinking necessities if your catering Bali can provide it. 
  • Ask your catering staff to pour small amount of champagne for each glass. This is best pre-done so that your guests can simply take their glasses their own and prevent them from asking for more. 

Bar and Buffet catering Bali – limit the options 

You don’t have to have a full bar for your wedding. Hiring a full open bar from catering Bali is definitely going to cost you some fortune when budget is at the forefront of your concern. Limit the options instead. You can do this simply by sticking to having several types: 

  • Wine 
  • Beer 
  • Whiskey 
  • Vodka 

You can even take out one of them. Is the beer your least favorite? Take them out of the list. Alternatively, you can also go with only one option, like wine, and serve several types of brand instead.

Have a limited-time bar catering 

Another way to cut the cost of your alcoholic beverages for your catering Bali you can try by cutting down the time when the bar’s going to be open. Aside from cutting down your cost, you can also prevent your guests from drinking themselves silly. Having the bar open for the entirety of the event is plenty of opportunities for people to get drunk. And while your Bali catering company actually have the right to cut on the alcohol for a guest if they think they’re over drinking, limiting the bar time from the start is going to make things easier for you.

Make sure that your Bali catering company have the license to serve alcohol 

You’d love to have alcohol served, sure. And you’re all ready to hire just the right bar catering Bali to serve you and your guests. But not all caterers will tell you whether they have a license to serve alcoholic drinks. This doesn’t just happen in Bali for destination weddings but other places as well. So make sure that you ask your Bali caterers clearly whether they have an alcoholic license so that you can be rest assured.
