This is a fantastic article with some really great ideas! Food stations had become more and more popular when I was still working as a wedding planner, but this takes it even further. I particularly love the idea of the late night breakfast bar, cereal bar and milk and cookies bar. Genius! Food Bars Are The New Wedding Craze LuxeEpicure 06.18.2012

That section was written with the assumption that the bride and groom weren't able to pay for ANY alcohol. Not just liquor while still be able to offer champagne and wine. There are many couples struggling to pay for their weddings and often times the first item they want to cut in their budge is the alcohol. Yes, offering a champagne toast and top shelf wine is another way to go but that would still represent a significant sum of money. If a couple is able afford unlimited top shelf wine and a champagne toast though, I'd still suggest to them offering an open bar instead and selecting the brands carefully. I still believe that a couple should try to cut expenses elsewhere rather than the bar bill. Most guests don't go to weddings and expect to have to pay for their drinks. Not all guests enjoy wine and champagne either. Many aren't even prepared with cash for such an event. Thank you for your comment though.
