I would be happy with those choices. Would you have some non-alcoholic options also?

Thanks for asking this question! I’m making the same decision right now. We are having our wedding in the middle of a Saturday afternoon/early evening and serving only beer, wine and champange would really help keep us on budget and allow me to do some of the other nice things I want to do. I can’t see to many people drinking much hard alcohol in the middle of the day anyway, so I’m glad to see most responses are positive about not having it.

Well I guess I’m the minority because I would probably miss the liquor. Assuming the white wine was to my liking (I have had some cheap bad wine at weddings), and I was in the mood to drink wine, I would be OK with it. But, I don’t drink red wine, beer or plain champagne. I really like the mimosa idea that was mentioned above though because I tend to like sweet drinks. I do realize I am the exception though and not everyone is as picky as me. I’m sure for most people those options would be great 🙂

i wouldn’t at a vineyard.  I would be expecting some good wine.  But if its a wedding at a hall with family I would really miss it then.  I think your selection is great and I would not worry about the guests not liking it.

I agree with the suggestions of adding a mimosa or a sangria. Something for those of us who prefer mixed drinks because they are sweeter.

Many people actually don’t like beer or wine of any kind. Those who don’t will be drinking your non-alcoholic selections. In the end, there’s nothing to worry about.

Personally, I prefer hard liquor as I hate beer and wine, but I’m perfectly happy with sherbet punch, lemonade or soda instead, as are lots of other people.

It’s free and there are choices, sounds good to me!

Why people would complain is beyond me, be happy to be getting it for free!!

I’ve been to many weddings like that and it’s never been a problem for me.  That’s what we did at our wedding too, and everyone seemed to be happy with it!

Honestly, I’d miss hard alcohol b/c I have food intolerances that make me unable to drink beer and wine.  Luckily the distillation process in vodka, gin and tequila take most of the allergans out of the booze.  That being said, I wouldn’t expect people to cater specifically to me as I know my situation is strange.

I love wine!!! But my family loves hard liq., they get all drunk and stupid so be happy that you have the option to just serve wine, champ and beer.  My family would be heart broken but I would be greatful.

I think having beer, wine and champagne are perfect!  I would just suggest that you don’t skimp on the quality if you go this route.  You don’t have to go top of the line, but it is nice to have something that at least tastes nice for your guests.  Or also keep in mind that you might want to have a couple different types of white and red wine available instead of just picking one.  I can’t tell you how many weddings I’ve gone to that just had beer and wine and the one white wine available was… chardonnay.  Great for pairing with dinner, not so nice to sip on all night (I’m not being a snob, most chardonnays are not made to be sipped, they are made for drinking with food).

Just a suggestion. 🙂

Yes, but that’s just me…. as long as you have beer, wine and champagne you should be fine!
