Alcohol or not??

Recommended Posts

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)

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.

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.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
