Talk to your FH about what is considered acceptable behavior and what the repercussions will be if he chooses to behave outside those standards, then have him talk to his family members who are most likely to misbehave. They are all adults and should be expected to behave like adults, and it’s pretty sad that they need to be treated like children, but if they can’t control their drinking, then someone is going to have to explain it to them, in advance. FWIW I would be concerned in general about marrying a man who can’t control his behavior when he’s been drinking; at best, that’s immature, and at worst, that could be an indicator of alcoholism. Make sure you are clear with him that the wedding day is not the only day you expect him to act like a grown-up when he’s been drinking.

Have a brunch or early afternoon wedding. Both of my parents were alcoholics so we had an early afternoon wedding followed by punch, sandwiches and sweets. The drinkers were free to drink on their own time after we left for our honeymoon. That way we avoided any of their questionable behavior occurring during the wedding.

If you’ve already told him your concerns and he feels he and his family will be able to keep things under control, then you need to trust and accept his judgment.
