I don’t drink wine or beer, usually I’ll have a caeser (Canada’s bloody mary equivilent) or a cooler, so I wouldn’t have any alcohol to drink.  Could you add in one other option?

I don’t drink beer or wine… but I also don’t go to a wedding to drink! so no, it wouldn’t bother me as long as the punch or whatever non alcoholic beverage you are serving is good!

Nope, I love wine and would be happy with a cold glass of wine. 🙂

Try adding a specialty drink/cocktail into the mix… Not many people are beer nor wine drinkers.

Nope, as the PP mentioned I don’t go to a wedding to drink. We are only having beer and wine due to costs, if the guests want to drink they can do it after.

@[email protected]: Well since that’s the case, I wouldn’t change the venue because of it.  I would be fine having a soft drink.  I just thought you were trying to decide if you should add more variety!

Having a full bar is kinda iffy also…. some people can’t handle liquor and it would be annoying if you had some people drunk off their mind.. Especially on your special day!

Nope. I plan on serving beer, wine and nonalcoholic drinks ofcourse. It works for our budget and I”ve asked several people and they’re fine with it. It gets expensive with full bars and $5 more pp can equal at least $500+ in extra catering cost for 100 guests. I’d rather put that in something else wedding related.

I wouldn’t mind. That is what we did at our wedding and there were no complaints 🙂

Unless the place we go to has a bar already, beer and wine is all we will have. Both my fiancee and I have friends AND family, who, when they drink hard liquor, get OUT OF CONTROL, so, if we can do without the hard liquor, we are going to. Weddings aren’t about getting “trashed,” but when hard liquor is involved, some people we know, just can’t control it..

I don;t drink beer or wine (and neither do many people I know), nor is that why I attend a wedding. As long as there are plenty of non-alcoholic options, I’d be happy to have that.

Your guests will drink whatever you have available and will not complain one bit. If they do complain, they are attending for the wrong reasons.

Just another thought…would they let you do sangria?
