So Fi and FFIL were playing golf this past weekend. They apparently started chatting about the wedding, and the bar situation. Our venue, open bar is $50pp. That's a little rich for us, so we've looked into doing beer/wine/signature beverage, or a consumption bar. Fi was expressing his displeasure at $50pp, and FFIL was offering suggestions. Apparently, that included 'open bar for two hours, then switching over to cash' or (my fave) 'consumption to a certain $ amount then closing the bar
Wha?? Okay, when FSIL got married she had a cash bar, I get that in their family it's not a problem. But no, thank you, I will not be doing that.
Any suggestions on how to easily kibosh this? We're staying with them this weekend, and I imagine it'll come up. And I've bean-dipped all the other random weirdness that's arisen before, but it's not easy!
I just cannot even with this.
