@NauticalDisaster:  Livid?  Really?  Someone thought enough of you to invite you to their wedding and you would be livid that their wine didn’t meet your expectations, especially because they spent their money on other things that were important to them.  Jeez, tough crowd.

Think about your crowd. Are they big wine people? Even they may not give two figs. Personally I couldn’t care less. As long as it doesn’t cause a headache after 1 glass, as a pp said.

@Saddiebug:  When I serve the wine without the label, people love it. They think it is decent,  but not great wine. When they see the label, they think you’re cheap.

 

I’d serve it if you were doing passed glasses or pre-poured glasses, but not if you were pouring in front of guests. I love it. I drink it all the time, but I generally don’t serve it to guests.

@EffieTrinket:  The chardonnay is pretty good.  People love it.

@pinkksnow:  Yep, just like I’ve seen many people complaining about food, schedules, and other details of others people’s wedding, I guess we all have our personal pet peeves, and mine would be wine. It’s a cultural thing I guess. Here it’s considered being a gracious host to provine decent wine. I’m not saying it has to be expensive, and if you noticed, I said there were unexpensive wines that are totally fine serving to your guests, but there are also cheap wines that taste like sh*t, and yes, it’s horrible to serve a wine that taste like sh*t to your guests. How are we even debating about that ? Hell, serve pizza to your guests if you want, just don’t serve shitty pizza. Copy and past to anything related to food and alcohol.

@NauticalDisaster:  If someone was my friend, their choice in anything for their wedding would not make me livid.  I like people for who they are, not what they can do for me.

@Saddiebug:  have you considered Costco instead? Some of the Kirkland wines are nice, although they are a tad more expensive than 2 buck chuck, they are still reasonably priced and taste infinitely better, in my opinion.

I love cheap wine and thank god our friends and family do too.  Serve what you want.  They’re lucky they’re getting any at all.  It’s not their party, they’re not there to get smashed on your dollar….they’re there to show support of your relationship and  celebrate your love.  When the heck did weddings become all about “what you get” as a guest? 
I’m just glad my family and friends don’t have their noses up in the air.

I served yellowtail at my wedding…based on these comments, now I’m kinda embarrassed :/ it’s usually about $12-15 a bottle here, which isn’t a good vintage wine, but I thought it was much above a $2 grocery store bottle (not that there’s anything wrong with TJ, just comparing!)

We served Sutter Home, super cheap, and Yellow Tail and had zero complaints. Although, our friends and family aren’t very stuffy. They were all just pleased there was an open bar. We also had several kegs of beer and margaritas, but we ended up using several of the bottles of red and white and completely ran out of the mascato.

Don’t think this would be an issue. But some people’s budgets are a lot bigger than mine was. 🙂
