I don’t see why you should limit yourselves.  Three options does not sound like an outrageous amount to me – did these professionals say why they felt that way?

I have heard of a lot of people doing beer, wine and a signature drink.  It doesn’t seem like too many options to me.  That drink sounds delicious by the way 🙂  What is sweet tea vodka?  I’ve never had that before.

That advice seems like craziness to me. We had a full bar, with wine and beer and a signature drink plus lots of other liquor options, and our guests made a dent in ALL of them! LOL

There are people who only drink wine, or only drink beer. And then there are people who like hard liquor. Your plan seems perfect to me.

I don’t understand that logic either. People want choices, people have preferences. What if someone doesn’t like beer and vodka?

Your wedding sounds very similar to mine!  Even the drinks!  We served:

2 types of beer

white & red wine

2 types of Arnold Palmers (one with vodka, one with rye)

Pimm’s cups (Pimm’s liqueur with sprite)

We also had a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, and I told our bartenders that if anyone asked for a drink that they could make but wasn’t on the menu (e.g. rye & coke, rye & gingerale etc) to just make it for them.  At least some of everything was gone.  The Pimm’s was the least popular.  Not much wine was drank either, but I think that’s because we put bottles on the table for dinner, and people just drank from those instead of going up to the bar for wine.  I’m not sure who told you to have less choices, but I found it was best to have a variety, as some of my friends will not drink beer/wine.

We’re havning a wedding at a distrillery/vineyard/brewery and are doing 7 beers, 2 wines and a signiture drink.

Many many of my friends ‘only drink wine’, ‘only drink hard alcohol’ and ‘only drink beer’.

 

I think all three, plus obviously the non-alcoholic, will make everyone happy!
