LIMIT THE BAR
You don't need to fund a full bar for your guests. Provide them with sparkling and regular water, wine, two or three types of soft drinks and beer; it's more than enough to offer at the reception. In a pinch, you could even limit your bar further to just water, tea or fruit punch mixed with sparkling water, and champagne for a toast. You could also opt for a dry reception, especially if it takes place earlier in the day.
