We hosted beer and wine for our Rehearsal Dinner. Everyone was okay with it. Most of the people in attendance were beer drinkers and it would have been a waste for us to have an open bar.

@StL.Ashley: It seems really unlikely that people would drink 3-4 drinks at a 3-hour dinner.

If money is an issue (not sure from your post) – could the Future In-Laws host certain drink types – i.e., domestic beers, wine, and house liquor? That could keep the cost down a little (except for the wine, unless you ordered some bottles and when it was gone, it was gone).

We are purchasing a set amount of alcohol up front, so I suppose you can call this a host bar.  While we will have a number of heavy drinkers, I believe we have enough non-drinkers to make this a better option.  We will have the option to purchase more if needed, on site.

Were doing the host bar – our rehearsal dinner is the same situation at yours, private room in a restaurant on a Friday night. Howeveyou our drink prices are much higher than yours. We didn’t think the often bar was worth it for the rehearsal –  most people will save their “heavy” drinking for the wedding.

I believe my ILs just bought pitchers of beer for everyone. I would probably just pay per drink in your case.
