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.

Our AHR will be Nov 9th - I'm sure it will be rainy and miserable so I don't think ice will melt too quickly.

 

Any ideas on where to buy big tubs/stainless steel buckets? And I'm in Canada so no saying Target..lol.

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!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
