You know your guests better than I do (obviously) but I think this is a legit concern.  If you are committed to this idea you may want to sort through you buttons and maybe use only ones of a certain color (like the bar only takes blue buttons).  Good luck!

You could attach a tag (or whatever shape you want) to the buttons that says something simple like  = 1 drink at the bar or whatever you want it to say so that only the buttons with these tags can be redeemed at the bar. I would do something to distinguish even if you think you know your guests. I’m sure, if he thought of it, my brother would try to redeem other buttons for sure.

I’m not even sure I would count on the guests being dishonest.  If I was handed two buttons for free drinks, and then handed a chocolate bar that had an identical looking button on it, I would think, ooh!  third drink!  It’s not even an honesty issue, I think it’s a clarity issue.  I wouldn’t use the same “token” for drinks that I was using as decoration anywhere else.

Why not just have a limited bar instead, or only have drinks during cocktail hour or only offer a few bottles of wine at each table?

I don’t know the discussion from your original post or your original reasoning, but I wouldn’t like to be given drink tickets/tokens/buttons at a wedding.

I like the idea of doing a cute tag on the buttons.  You could even phrase it as “this ticket redeemable for 1 drink” or something, so it’s more like the tag is the drink ticket, and the button is just embellishment.  Plus with buttons, it would be easy to have a string going through the tag and the button holes…
