I'm in a terrible spot. My parents are NOT drinkers but me and my finace drink socially. He was offered to pay for the catering and the bar entirely at the reception. However, my mom said if there is any alcohol served at the wedding she will not pay for any of it. She would be financing the venue, flowers, dress, etc... I could honestly care less either way. It would be fine if it was a dry wedding. It would be fine with me if there's an open bar. My sister made the argument "He (my finace) can drink before the wedding, after the wedding, or any other night for the rest of his life." I told her it is not about getting drunk. If I asked him to not drink at all that night he wouldn't. It's about his guests. We live near Nashville, TN and he is from Philadelphia. He will have lots of guests going very out of their way to attend the wedding. He wants his family and friends to have an open bar but my parents stand as a road block. I feel like I'm in a lose lose situation. Any advice?
