He’s being a silly brat. You are providing beverages and libations. He needs to get over himself.

As a pp has said, not everyone serves a full range of alcohol at their weddings. This is a vow renewal and basically a party. You shouldn’t feel the slightest bit guilty about your choices of drink. Your brother will just have to try and behave like an adult for the evening. Or stay home, of course.

@PositiveThinking:  Your brother sounds like a brat. I hope when you were growing up you got your licks in then because he’s really due for a beat down.

@PositiveThinking:  Still, I think that he’s being really judgey and putting unecessary pressure on you.  Is he married or has he ever thrown such an expensive party?  Maybe he’s just unaware of how pricey these things get.

Beer and wine is not my husband’s ideal drink choice. He likes whiskey, but he is a communal drinker. If that’s all beinv served he will find a flavor he likes and sticks with it.

No need to offer any other spirits.

Wine, beer, and bubbly sounds perfectly chic!

I don’t like cash bars, but I think a beer and wine option is completely fine.

I don’t see a problem…  especially for an imtimate vow renewal.  Tell him to bring his own hard liquor if he so feels inclined.

@PositiveThinking:  I guess it depends on your group but I don’t know a single guy who wouldn’t drink beer…but we’re also “beer snobs” so I probably wouldn’t be friends with many people who outright wouldn’t drink beer haha.

@PositiveThinking:  My Fiance and I are happy with beer and wine. And it is nice to have champagne at a wedding. I’d not bother with the hard stuff, or have a cash bar option.

ETA, just saw you don’t like cash bars. Neither do I but for one person whining about no hard alcohol, I wouldn’t mind making them do the cash thing. . .. I suppose you might get a few bottles of decent whisky/rum/cognac. You wouldn’t need much for a wedding of 30 people anyway, since probably not many of them would go for hard drinks if there is interesting beer and good wine.
