It’s a fairly common liquor license restriction, not just in wedding venues but in restaurants and shops as well.

It was permitted; however, my Darling Husband and I only wanted a champagne toast (with the option of sparkling cider for those who did not want any alcohol at all) and no other alcohol to be served at our wedding. We had an “open” bar, but only sodas, juices, and iced tea were offered and available for our guests.

We brought our own liquor, but honestly, very few people actually drank the hard liquor. We could have done without it easily. Then again, I’m not really a drinker, so it wasn’t top of the “must have” list for me. Know your crowd though, if your friends and family are more wine/beer drinkers then they may not even realize or care if hard liquor isn’t available!

Ya, it’s a liquor licensing liability thing. Some venues and/or caterers don’t want the liability that comes along with serving hard liquor.

I think it is not unusual. We have a full open bar, but I think it should be cool.

@karmalkween:  Our was the same and, like you, we found it surprising at first but none of the guests seemed to care 🙂
