    Ok we are not having a AHR or a reception in Hawaii. Just a dinner at a restaurant. We are expecting no more than 20 people.

    So at the dinner (which we are paying for) should I order wine OR just have the champaigne (spp??) toast with the cake

    OR should I let people order their own liquor but no more than 2 and have a champaigne (spp??) toast with the cake?? (I am leaning towards this route b.c. not everyone drinks wine or drinks alcohol at all)

      Hmmm I'm in the same boat as you are Sherri. I think what we are going to do is order a couple of bottle of wine to do the toast.

        I like the 2nd option - gives people a little freedom to order what they want, but you still get your champagne toast!

          Is there any way you can do a complimentary cocktail hour and than also provide the champagne for the toast? This is how many of the weddings have been set up that I have been too anyway. That way no one needs to try and keep track of who has had there 2 drinks or the I dont drink so can my wife have 4 drinks etc etc...that could get confusing for the bartenders and staff.

            Or if the complimentary cocktail hour is not in your budget than I would just stick to providing the champagne for the toast.

              If you have the budget, I would do the 2 drink option so everyone could get what they want.

                I dont know if we can have a cocktail hour (at this restuarant) for 20 people but that is not a bad idea. I think I may just go with alcohol with the toast...

                  I think alcohol (2 drinks) plus the toast. Some people will want beer, some will want a mixed drink, etc. etc.

                  BUT if it starts getting too complicated than I almost say just do wine - you can always toast with wine.

                    Sherri,
                    My parents and I agreed that we would only supply wine and beer for everyone (well to a point, my dad says, if it runs out too bad) and then champagne for the toast...I think that is reasonable, alcohol gets so expensive and with such a small party you wouldn't want anyone to drink too much.
