That sounds great to me! I think guests will be completely happy with those options :).

I think it’s enough. Just make sure you have enough champagne because those coctails sound like they will be a hit.

Personally, I would be thrilled with the choices! I love champagne cocktails and white wine. If it is in your budget though (and I don’t think it is a huge deal if it isn’t), I’d add a red wine though. Both white wine and champagne can be on the sweeter side and a lot of people prefer red… so if you added a Merlot or Cab I feel like you’d really have all your bases covered. 🙂

sounds good to me!  I second the suggestion of adding red wine.  A lot of people prefer red or white, not both.


We’re having beer, red wine, and white wine at our wedding (along with soda and iced tea).  I haven’t gotten anything other than “sounds great” from guests.

It sounds adorable! A  very reasonable selection, and that’s coming from a bride who looooves her whisky and rum 😉


Do you plan on dong a drink menu card by the bar? I think it would be really cute!

I agree that if  you could offer one red wine that would be great, but don’t worry if you can’t.  You are giving you guests a nice choice.

Thats similar to what we are planning to serve, except we will have a red wine option (even though I dont know how many people will drink it). I think its plenty. 

Like cosmocity said, if you weren’t planning on doing it already I would def make a bar menu so that the guests know what their options are. I went to a wedding that had a similar bar to what you and I are having but the options werent posted anywhere. The bartender was about ready to murder the couple at the end of the night since they had to repeat whats included about 150 times!

@Mrs. AF: That’s fine. It’s a wedding, not a night club. ^_^

Theres wine and champagne it should be sufficient… are you having it at a place that is controlling the alcohol?? We have an open bar provided by our catering hall… most places like this dont allow shots.. I dont even think they allow “on the Rocks” drinks… but either way its more than fine

I don’t drink beer or wine but I wouldn’t miss the hard alcohol since I’d prefer something non-alcoholic instead given those choices – the gourmet coffee sounds wonderful. Most hard alcohol is not drunk in shots either. Only you know what your guests will drink and what they won’t. But your plan sounds fine.
