We are beer people and I was surprised at how many wine drinkers we had! Could you place a wine bottle and corkscrew at each table? or buy just a few bottles to have if people ask?

How well do you know what your guests will drink?  At our wedding, we had a lot more wine drinkers than beer drinkers.  Personally, I would do beer, wine and soda.

We are just having complimentary beer, pop, water, coffee, lemonade the whole night. Everything else is cash bar. We were able to buy a number of bottles of wine to be served free, so we just purchased 5 bottles of white wine (our venue doesn’t allow red wine since a museum).

I agree that it would probably be a good idea to offer wine.  Also, I really would suggest you avoid providing drink tickets to your parents and bridal party and not the rest of your guests… that’s just going to create a lot of ill feelings.

You don’t have to pay anywhere near $25 a bottle to get a good bottle of wine!  Go to trader joe’s.  You can buy 2 buck chuck by the case!

@mrskisstobe: Do you have to get the wine from the venue? Is that why its $25 a bottle? Because I know plenty of wines that are way cheaper than that and still taste great. And you can get them from a wholesaler too for very cheap.

Is there any way you can have a different system for your parents and bridal party? If I were a wedding guest and I saw, for example, the MOB getting a glass of wine (my drink of choice) for free and using a token I would probably be a little upset that I wasn’t able to get the same free options that they would get.

And yes, I agree that you should have a couple bottles of wine just in case. Most people see wine as a celebration drink so whereas they may drink beer on a regular basis they may want to toast you with wine.

I’m not a wine person but would love to put a bottle of wine on each table (we will have 10-12 tables). What is a good inexpensive wine to have?
