Q: How do wedding caterers charge for bar service? A: The bar can be a big piece of the budget, so it helps to know how this is handled. Caterers typically handle the bar charges in one of two ways: either by charging per person or by the amount of alcohol consumed. If the consumption method is used, all bottles and cocktails will be rung up individually. In this scenario, you could receive a bill at the end of the night for anything that was consumed but not included in the original estimate.
