The major consideration would be where the wedding is.   If you’re in a public space and need to buy a liquor license or are using a licence from a hall or hotel you will not be able to “provide” liquor from anywhere other than a BC store. It will not matter if you give it away or serve it up.  In AB,  every bottle in the location has to be on a till receipt attached to our license if an inspector comes.  It kind of screwed up my plans too because I have a wonderful mead, beer and wine maker I could have enlisted.

If the wedding is a private residence like a home you can do whatever you want and that might be a loophole you can use. 

It’s possible the wine could go to the bridal shower, the bachelor party or maybe be given as gifts if you do a day after gift opening at a residence?   You can have it sent to hotel rooms or even delivered to locals with a thank you note after the fact if that is logistically possible?
