AHR - How do I keep drinks cold?

Recommended Posts

We're doing a lunch for our AHR that will be a catered buffet with an open self-serve bar...bottles of water, pop, beer and wine. The thing I'm stuck on is, how do I keep all the drinks cold? The only thing I can think of is coolers but it just seems not...nice (I can't think of the word I'm looking for) enough. Although our AHR won't be fancy, it just seems weird to have this nice buffet and all white linen tableclothes, vases of flowers...and then coolers. Any suggestions? We really didn't want to have a bartender so that's why we're trying to think of a serve yourself option.

you can get styrofoam coolers and decorate them w/ tulle and paint pens...or what about 70 gallon buckets like these: [url/http://www.fortexfortiflex.com/plasticbuckets.html[/url]? you can decorate them and put tons of ice in. there are also metal buckets, but idk how big they are.

Ryan Amanda - I would suggest checking out the superstores - i have seen big buckets there in metal - and they would be perfect.


Another Idea - I saw this at another wedding - the couple filled a canoe with ice and set the drinks in there. It was actually really cute!

Something we have used at several parties is a galvanized water trough. You can buy them for a decent price at Big R stores or any stores that have livestock or horse supplies. Make sure you fill it where you want it to stay, because by the time it is filled with drinks and ice they are extremely heavy! Just an idea....Good Luck Finding Something!!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
