Providing alcohol to your guests is strictly a decision for you and your fiance to make. Just because other couples allow alcohol at their weddings doesn't mean you must follow their lead. If you are uncomfortable with the extra expense, responsibility, and obligations that come with serving liquor, you should consider substituting champagne and wine with sparkling grape wine or a mixed punch. Many brides & grooms have chosen this simpler path.
Cakes & Catering
Your caterer or licensed liquor dealer will be responsible for setting up the bar at your reception. You must determine how hard the liquor should be as well as if you prefer your guests to pay for drinks themselves.
