My venue told me that it reflects poorly on them and could cheapen an important and formal event like a wedding.  That was in addition to their consumption rules of course.

Yeah…my first thought was that it’s kind of tacky to be doing shots at a wedding, especially if it’s a more formal venue.  I think the alcohol consumption thing is a really good point, though; it’s a lot easier to get wasted in ten minutes if you’re doing shots, and venues probably don’t want their property destroyed by raging drunks.

 

I think that if my venue doesn’t have this policy, I’ll post a sign myself and pretend it’s the venue’s bidding…

We are having a no shots rule at the wedding, it is my choice though, and not the venues … I want my wedding to have a more formal feel to it, and the shots just don’t work …

Although I think that those who have a shots tradition for weddings must be a fun bunch Tongue out, it’s probably mostly a liability issue…

most of the places i have talked to made it a liability issue – since 4-5 shots and something is gonna get out of hand… 🙂

Liquor laws are so strict now that venues have to watch their backs…we don’t allow shots at our hotel…its not worth it to serve shots and really, it looks bad at certain venues ..we don’t serve long island iced teas either…or red bull with booze..that is a bad combo!  people get sick real quick!  Smile

I am only having wine, beer and champagne at my wedding.

So shots will not be an option.

i imagine is for the control… but other reasons i dunno… call me tacky but im using shots in my wedding… but i have a lot of tacky stuff in my wedding like color dress, a back yard wedding and others stuff!!! funny thing is i meet my Fiance having shots on halloween day…  

but in a venue i imagine is to keep control of the crowd and dont get to much people drunk… (of course there are other ways to get drunk without shots)  🙂
