Honestly I think it’s okay… but would you consider at least providing beer and wine?

I think you should try to at least provide beer and wine. People are less likely to get drunk on that compared to hard liquor. I think it’s polite to offer your guests some sort of beverage that they don’t have to pay for.

I think you should provide alcohol, but just beer and wine.

@MissKabers:  It will never be polite to charge people for your hospitality or pass the costs of hosting onto the guests.  This is true regardless of that the function is celebrating.

Host the event you (or your father) can afford.

I think it’s fine, either that or just make it dry.

I think it’s fine….I don’t expect my inlaws to foot that type of bill….we’re doing it at a pub so it’s a relaxed party anyways….

 

which is the same for the engagement party….at sports bar….my parents are providing toasting wine and that’s it…..

Could you offer to pay that portion of Rehearsal Dinner party expense? Then the cost to you dad is nil. Or you could tell him (only because its your father) that it is in poor taste to charge guests for anything.

People who want to get wasted are going to get wasted whether or not they have to pay for it.
