I would just straightforwardly ask about it. Say you noticed at the tasting that they were very light on the liquor in the mixed drinks, much lighter than you’ve ever tasted before, so it didn’t even taste like there was anything other than soda and ice, and you are very concerned about that for your wedding especially with the per drink cost. And see what they say.

Were you paying for the drinks at the tasting?  I’d just ask as well.  If they don’t give you a straight answer, perhaps stick with wine and beer, which can’t really be changed?

@distracts:  +1 I agree, let them know about your concerns. It won’t make you look like a jerk trying to get drunk – if anything it will make you look like you are experienced and know what your talking about and they can’t take advantage of you, if that is what they are trying to do. Or maybe they just had a bad bartender?
