We’re having a small wedding with only about 20-30 close friends and family. We definitely know we want to get champagne for the toast. We saw the other bar options and we know we want liquor because that’s what we drink. I don’t think many people drink wine from my experience with them and we’re worried that only one person will want a glass and they only sell by the bottle so we’d be paying quite a bit for one glass of wine. Also, more personally, my mom only really drinks wine (I’ve never seen her drink beer and she said she doesn’t like liquor) and she’s not a person I want to be drinking that day (bad problems with drinking past and present). We don’t like the beer selection. Ironically our wedding dinner is going to more than likely be in the room called the Wine Room. Would this bother anyone though? It just seems like it could be problematic and possibly expensive to pay for bottles when they aren’t fully used.

On your invitations, say, “martinis and dinner”. Martinis mean hard liquor! I know a lot of people who prefer wine but personally, i’d take either. I usually start off with wine and end up with a martini at some point though. Sounds like not offering wine would be a good way to sneakily keep your mom sober, though.
I’m liking the irony of the whole wine room situation, not to mention the idea of a martini and cocktail party. Print up some menus to give guests ideas at least…i know i sort of pull a blank sometimes, even though i used to work in a bar!

Honestly, for the amount of people drinking wine….I would offer it… but let the bartenders know that they really REALLY need to monitor certain people.
Have a light and a regular beer to offer….
It’s your day however people are there to enjoy it with you. It’s not like they’re only cognac drinkers or anything, beer, wine, liquor, pretty standard and makes people happy.
