I think if Beer has had a hand in your relationship, and your guests know you are beer lovers, etc… there’s nothing wrong with sipping your fave brew together as part of your ceremony! I think it’s awesome actually.

FI and I are going to have a drink of our favorite whiskey. I figure if we had it at the Catholic church (which we’re not because FI is Jewish) then we would drink wine, so nothing wrong with a sip of whatever we like most

I think that’s a really unique and funny thing to do, especially if your family and friends are the type to think so too. You’re definitely going to get some people one here who think it’s crazy/inappropriate/(insert adjective here) but it’s YOUR wedding, so do what makes you and your FI happy!

Personally, I would think it’s a bit odd and inappropriate for such a ceremony, but I tend to be on the conservative side. If it’s super meaningful to you and your FI and your families would be ok with it, then do what you want! Keep in mind that if there isn’t a particular “unity” aspect you like, you don’t HAVE to do one!

I think it’s awesome!  I saw a similar thing on a wedding blog where they poured a mixed shot and drank it.

That is AWESOME!  I love that idea.  And also now want to try that combo myself…!

@SoontobeMrsFisette:  I think it all depends on how you do it… with a light hand and a wink, and as part of a very casual/light-hearted ceremony, it could be adorable and funny.

I often find unity candle ceremonies a little forced and awkward, especially when they’re part of very serious formal ceremonies, so I think this could be a very cute alternative. And there’s room for some dorky wordplay with the dirty pear name!

@SoontobeMrsFisette:  I’m a beer lover (full disclosure)… And I think this is a fine idea. I love when couples make the details more “them”.

Go for it!  I have friends who did this at their wedding and I thought it was really sweet.  It totally fit their personalities and I didn’t see any guests object to it.

I think the idea of having that drink served at your reception is great, but I would be cautious of making it ceremonial in nature…  ( It could be perceived as mocking the concept of communion, which maybe the reason you are asking us a what do you think question.). I think you’d want to be very careful with that.

I think encorporating a drink that was part of your relationship is a great idea, but feel it would be a better fit at the reception.  Could you make it your toasting drink?
