Hi, I am getting married in August. We will be providing 2 bottles of wine on each table and sparkling wine for the toast. We will be paying for coffee/tea as well as pop.
What I'm wondering is, do we have to provide more alcohol than this? Or is this acceptable. So if the bottles run out should we buy more? This is what I would like to do, but my FI doesn't see why. He would like to do a cash bar, which I am firmly against. (He still doesn't see why it's rude, I think because a lot of his family does this)
Also, is it rude if we do this (have only the wine) but buy mixed drinks for ourselves at the bar? My gut tells me it would be rude, so I'd like to find a solution where we can be polite to our guests. Thanks for any helpful suggestions!
