Valley Beverage Company
Be advised that there has been a change in ownership with this vendor. The previous rave reviews are based on the previous owners. I was so excited when I read the reviews. We went to every store we could think of and wrote down the prices for the alcohol so we could do a price comparison. After a great deal of time and multiple requests, Valley Bev finally gave us their prices. My husband kept asking for final quotes, including the mixers they recommended and the amounts, however, we could not get a straight answer back. My husband was told that they could match the majority of the best prices we had found, but time kept passing with no official numbers. Well, it came down to the week before the wedding and desperately we kept trying to get an answer. When we finally got one, it was that they conveniently could not match the prices. Many were significantly over the other prices we had found. It was only a few days before the wedding, and we refused to be cornered into paying their prices. We found another vendor, who emailed us a quote in 24 hours with amazing prices. They also suggested amounts and mixers (including suggesting what items we could get better prices for elsewhere), delivered, and picked up. If you deal with Valley Bev, and they don't give you answers right away-don't trust in the previous rave reviews that they will help you in the end.
I agree with all the above posters. Valley Beverage was the bomb! Dawn suggested the alcohol I needed for the types of cocktails I want. They delivered onsite (my wedding was at a private residence) and picked up the left over the next day. I was refunded the unopened bottles. It was great not having to worry about a huge bar tab and not having to lug all the alcohol ourselves!
This was one of my best vendor picks and yet another recommendation find. My DH had wanted to go to Costco…but the trouble with lugging the alcohol and arranging ice, bins, etc didn’t sit well with me. Dawn, the contact, is always busy but very good at helping you select a menu based on your description of your guests. They showed up on time, dropped off all the alcohol, 300 lbs of ice, salt, limes, and all the other stuff you don’t remember. My guests raved about the alcohol selection (wine, champagne, vodka) and loved that the bartender poured stiff drinks. Valley Beverage then came back to pick up the unopened bottles for a full refund at the end of the night. So, for 150 ppl, we only paid $850 for premium brands for a bunch of lushes.
This company will deliver a full bar and all the alcohol you need for your wedding (including wine). They charge you for everything and then they refund you for any unopened alcohol, typically 1/3 to 1/4 back. They were easy to work with and met all our requests for specific kinds of drinks (lots of different kinds of martinis) and kinds of beer. This was perfect for a venue like mine as we didn't have to deal with lugging our own alcohol, ice, etc.
