Well I would hope someone would at least ask before running off with an entire box of alcohol. I don’t think it’s so “normal” for someone to just take $150+ in alcohol without saying a word. Not where I live at least.
It was already paid for. By my dad. But shouldn’t it be mine or his to disperse? Lol.
Like I said it’s not like I’ll miss it I just don’t like the feeling of possibly being taken advantage of and it possibly being a friend of his or mine, or someone who we already paid, fed for free and gave free drinks to.
Not pressing the issue any further and still hoping it was simply a case of bad judgement.

rrenee : Yeah, this sucks and has happened to most of us in one shape or form. Doesn’t make it ok but what can you do? These things happen (and hopefully not all the time!). No one will likely admit it. It’s also likely that someone assumed that it must have been paid for already but was left behind and no one was gonna take it home or look for it. I would just let it go especially no one saw anyone take anything. You can only assume things at this point.

To be optimistic, whoever took it may have thought the alcohol was just going to go to waste. Who knows. At such a big event, I wouldn’t count on everything being exactly in place by the end of the night. If it makes you feel better, at the end of our wedding, we had so much leftover food and drink. We were giving it away to our guests and even the building staff because it just wouldn’t fit in the car.

I guess if there were security cameras at the venue or something, you could ask to see those for piece of mind? That would be something that just kinda really bugged me though, so I totally don’t blame you

7 bottles of wine and some beer? “$150 amount of alcohol”? Yes someone took it. Who cares? Move on.

craigslistgirl : I would have more than likely given it away as well. That’s not the point.

I get it. I had two topiaries that I decorated with led lights and roses at the ceremony site. After the ceremony everyone moved to the reception area. At the end of the night, we cleared out the reception area and didn’t think to go back to the ceremony place and I forgot the topiaries. Two days later on Monday I called and the coordinator said she “couldn’t find them” and that they’d been discarded. $175 down the drain. Pissed me off. Still pisses me off. She knows she didn’t throw them away. Who would throw away two brand new trees, copper pots and all??
Someone stole that liquor too.

rrenee : I think might have been in the venue’s contract that they would retain unopened beverages. I’m sorry that you and your husband ended the evening drunk though.

testyone : Whats wrong with drinking at your own wedding if you choose to?

testyone : No, we paid for the beverages beforehand and they were ours to keep afterwards. They were part of what we paid in our contract. We didn’t technically have “open bar” we just paid for X amount beforehand. The coordinater is the one who boxed them up for us and placed them by the door while people were carrying things outside.
Also I wasn’t totally hammered but I was pretty tipsy. I had a great time. I was celebrating my wedding lol.
