     Blue curacao, aside from being disgusting in my opinion, is also a nightmare to get out of clothing especially a white wedding dress. Having flashbacks to my schools deb ball.

    I hate blue curacao.

    Beer options look fine to me.

    Are you serving any wine?

    I’m with PP, blue curacao is horrendous. It’s basically syrup IMO. 

    The beer selections are fine and definitely on par for most weddings.

    I love blue curacao! So I voted for the first two options, in my opinion cocktails should have some element that is non alcoholic in them, so not just straight alcohol. But that’s personal preference 🙂

    I’m not a fan of really sweet drinks so they all sound pretty gross to me (sorry!!). 

     

    What about something like a simple rum and coke that’s more universal?

    I’d be really disappointed to find that there was no wine at the wedding.

    The beer selection is okay.  Blue Moon is decent, Coors is..well, pretty gross. 

    As for the cocktails, I usually go for a straight rum and coke or cranberry vodka, so none of those really appeal to me.

    @allyfally:  I think having juices for vodka cocktails would be a good idea, and definitely not expensive!  You can pick them up at the grocery store a few days before and be good.

    @allyfally:  blue curaçao is good, its sweet like grenadine almost. I voted for the coco snowball. Out of those options it is the only one i would drink

    First two cocktails = yum!

    I’m like you, to drink it must be super sweet! I would add lots of coke and some whiskey and/or rum in there though. Rather than having a few specific cocktails it allows people to mix and match. I also drink just vodka, raspberry and lemonade too, most girls I know do. So perhaps buying some syrups and lemonade would be a good go 🙂

    So long as you have a heavy/mid and a light beer in popular brands you should be fine. In Aus I would say Carlton Draught, Carlton Dry, Tooheys or Cascade, but I don’t know the US equivalents haha 🙂

    @allyfally:  If you’ll be having your wedding in KY, maybe try to pick one beer from KY?  My FI went to college there and bourbon is the thing, so why not a bourbon aged beer:

    Just my two cents 🙂 especially if you want something a little different!

     

    Also I think I remember Yuengling being HUGE so maybe drive across to Ohio and get some as a treat?  People seem to go nuts over it in states where you can’t get it!
