How to Choose Eugene Wedding Drinks

Most wedding planners in Eugene would agree that a well-stocked bar is one of the three most important elements for a successful wedding reception (the other two being good music and a delicious menu). However, choosing a range of drinks to serve at your wedding can be quite the confusing task, especially if you’re not sure what would work for your particular style and budget.

So, how to choose your wedding drinks? We have some tips for you –

  • In general, catering companies will provide you with a list of drinks to choose from. Most of the times, they are split in three main categories: well, call, and top shelf (or “premium”). These categories are meant to cover everyone’s needs, so you are more than likely to find something that will suit your wedding.
  • The “well” category frequently includes drinks that fall into the entry (or budget-friendly) range: lower priced wines and beers, as well as liquors. The “call” category includes branded names and these drinks are usually used for very specific drinks (e.g. a Martini made with a particular brand). As for the “top shelf” category, it includes, as you would expect, higher priced drinks that usually fall into the entry-level luxury range.
  • If you are concerned with your budget but still want to make sure your guests receive great drinks, we suggest you pick the “well” option. If you want your guests to be fully happy with the wedding bar, the “call” category will offer a very good price-to-quality ratio. In general, the “top shelf” category is not as common, and especially not for a large wedding – but if your budget allows for this, you can, of course, pick a drink or two from that category as well.
