    I personally wouldn’t do it, seems tacky to me, BUT a wedding is meant to be personal so if it meant something to the couple (and as a member of the audience I would hopefully know them well enough to ‘get it’) then I’d say go for it. On four weddings last week a couple basically made a mixed drink, each poured some alcohol into a mixer, shook it, and drank – and then served their ‘mixed drink’ at the reception as well which was neat.

    We incorporated a native American wedding vase in our ceremony. And no one knew what was in it but us. We also used little boot glasses full of beer for our toast with the cake cutting. Then again we brew beer so that ups the rationale.

    I just saw this on Four Weddings but it was with a martini. I myself don’t care too much for the idea, but to each his own.

    I love the idea, personally. If it fits your personalities and you’re not going too far out of the realm of tradition, just for the sake of braking tradition, I think it could be a fun twist to your ceremony! My Fiance and I are not fans of the candle or sand, so we opted for the Celtic hand tying ceremony and will be adding a bit of history about it in our programs. That way we hope to limit the amount of confused looks and “what the hell is going on?”‘s! lol!

    I don’t really get it, but if that is what you want then go for it 🙂

    I would only do it, if there is significant meaning to you, other then that I think its just a little strange.

    Not really my thing and I voted tacky but it is YOUR wedding after all.  Whatever makes you happy is the main thing Smile

    I don’t see how it’s tacky, especially if you guys are really into beer/brewing/etc. To me it’s no different than sand.

    But would you be combining two different beers?

    Oh, eek!! canned beers belong in canoes and campsites, not weddings. Perhaps pour the beer into glasses first then to a combined mug?

    @Rush1986: OK, that’s a little different…. I mean, I could see pouring out a black and tan with good microbrews – that would make cool pictures and would be unique. Plus that would really fit a beer-conoissoer (sp?) couple. Canned domestic light beer? It’d have to be significant.
