Alcohol can be one of the biggest expenses for a wedding. Finding a venue that allows you to BYO alcohol can help significantly reduce the costs and allow you to choose exactly what you want (rather than getting stuck with the stock standard house wine and beer!).
When you think about BYO alcohol, the first thing that might pop into your mind is cool rooms and countless bags of ice. That definitely does not have to be the case.
