You know your crowd best so I think it will be fine, especially if you have sangria as one of your signature drinks – and I say this as a wine drinker who doesn’t drink beer at all.

You can’t purchase four bottles of wine just in case?

I drink both wine and beer, but I always prefer wine to go with a meal.  Are you doing the bar yourself?  Couldn’t you just have some wine and return it if you don’t open it?  Just get one type of red and one type of white?  Or maybe even just a white?

Are you bringing in your own booze or does your venue provide it? If you’re bringing your own in, I don’t see how bringing in a bottle or two of wine could hurt or cost much more at all.

I would be incredibly disappointed if there was no wine at a wedding.  Can’t you grab a couple bottles at least? 

I don’t drink hard liquor, and generally don’t drink beer at weddings.

wathenwedding17 :  I don’t understand.  If you think people will drink it, why don’t you want to provide it?  Wine is cheaper than liquor…

wathenwedding17 :  My family is a bunch of rednecks (and proud) and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single one of them drink wine. Sure, some people are wine only drinkers, but it doesn’t sound like that is your audience. You know your people, I’d say what you’re doing is just fine.

I like wine with dinner but I would be happy with whatever the hosts choose to provide (even no alcohol), if it means I don’t have to open my wallet. Hosts should provide beverages but there is no requirement to cover the spectrum of alcohol.

wathenwedding17 :  How many guests are you having? Most liquor stores allow you to return any unopened and undamaged bottles of booze. It seems like, from your update, that you do have some people who would prefer wine. I get that you’re trying to save money but just skipping wine entirely seems like it really wouldn’t save that much.

wathenwedding17 :  Sounds like your plan works for your crowd so its fine. I don’t care for beer or wine so this wouldn’t bother me in the slightest. ETA: So this is mainly to cut costs? If so have you actually compared costs? Wine is generally cheaper than hard liquor. Your idea for beer + wine plus signature drinks sounds like a nice compromise.

wathenwedding17 :  I agree with a PP that you know your crowd. I dont drink beer or liquor and I personally would be happy with the sangria. Make sure to have non-alcoholic drinks available as well!
