Ok would like some opinions on this topic! So I’m getting married in the Caribbean with just a small group of family/friends. Then, about a week after we return we’re having a very casual party with basically potluck food, mingling, music, etc… VERY laid back on a Sunday afternoon. If we want alcohol at the party we have to get the alcohol permit and then of course, buy the alcohol. Well, I’m afraid that we’re going to have a ton left over because people won’t really want to drink on a Sunday afternoon, and my FI and I don’t drink. Our families aren’t big drinkers, but would probably drink some beer if it was provided. What do you think??

Do you need a liquor permit? I’ve never heard of that for a back yard BBQ. However, why not just get like a quarter keg? Then the beer is there and it’s not that much of an expense.

If people won’t miss it, I wouldn’t buy any.

If it’s not in someone’s yard or home and you really do need a permit, I would just skip it….
If not, I would grab a couple of kinds of beers since that’s casual and not out of place in a potluck afternoon atmosphere.

I honestly don’t think I would bother with it. Just have a bunch of lemonade and fruit punch and different non-alcoholic drinks.

It’s at a park, so yeah we need the permit. I think you’re right, maybe have a fruit punch or something cool. I don’t think anyone will miss no alcohol.

You could talk to your local liquor store and ask if you can return anything unopened.
Alternatively having one option such as a vodka lemonade then you could make a lot with only one bottle of vodka. It wouldnt be too heavy for the time and day and a nice option without a lot of money.
