    @asagirl:  I’ve never seen anyone outside of a club dance while holding alcohol… So I would stick to glasses!

    How about you ask the venue to pour them in to glasses by default, but not refuse bottles if anyone requests one. 

    Also, whilst this is not what you asked. Don’t torture yourself with such small details! Your photos will reflect your day, your guests will enjoy themselves – and you will enjoy yourself more if you’re not a quivering ball of stress!

    @asagirl:  You could also ask your photographer to photoshop them out of the pics.

    Wow, I’ve never even noticed bottles or thought to look for them in pictures.  I’d leave it in the bottle for ease of moving around.

    I don’t mind bottles, though I’m pretty sure our venue pours into glasses by default.

    umm theres pictures of me posing with a beer bottle at the wedding. I think its funny. I don’t really care. If you don’t like it then have them pour it into bottles by default but not refuse if they ask for a bottle. Some guys prefer a bottle but most are just gonna take any beer as its handed to them. its not gna change a thing… trust me its not worth worrying about.

    @jesssamesssa:  Please don’t ask a photographer to do this unless you want to double the price! There’s absolutely no way I’d work for a client who expected me to Photoshop beer bottles out of pictures. On the other hand, I would certainly not INCLUDE beer bottles and dinner table detritus in shots if it were possible to quickly clear them out of the way.

    However, I really think that not permitting guests to drink out of bottles for photographic reasons takes micromanagement to whole new levels. What will you do if some of the food clashes with the theme colours? Snatch it from their hands?

    Uuugh, Beer Bottles.

    NO… when it comes to a Wedding and a “traditional Wedding Reception” I’d be upping my game, to glassware.

    Outside of a Bar, Club or Backyard BBQ, I’ve never seen people drink out of Beer Bottles in a more refined atmosphere.

    Looks crass… which is EXACTLY WHY you don’t want these bottles in your photographs.

    HELL NO, this ain’t no Tailgate Party…

    And I will echo what the other Bees have said, even in some Bars & Clubs I’ve gone to there are strict rules about drinks on the Dance Floor (too dangerous… especially if someone drops / breaks glass.  Which is also why a lot of places are pretty strict about saying that women cannot be on the dance floor without shoes… it tends to be one or the other… Drinks on the Dancefloor = Shoes on everyone)

    Hope this helps,

    My friends are strictly attached to their drinks.  They would absolutely dance with them in their hands.  That said, I like the look of beer bottles.  It looks less stuffy to me.
