I’m trying to figure out the best way to serve drinks/alcohol or maybe not even at all. We’re expecting to have anywhere between 125-175 people. However; my fiancé side of the doesn’t drink. My side of the family doesn’t really drink a whole lot. My fiancé and I were okay with doing without a bar, my future in-law said “whatever you want we will be okay with”. My mother on the other hand keeps insisting that we “need” a bar. I’ve seen a lot of post saying that the thing guest remember the most about a wedding is the food and entertainment (music, dj etc). Which is why I’m stuck in between having some type of bar or none at all.
My sister got married last year, so yes my mother has been through this but also I love my brother in law but his family was one of those special families. Without going into great details, my brother in laws parents are divorced and it wasn’t a good situation and they don’t get along. On top of that, they drink a lot, I mean A LOT. I think my mom is still in the mind set that since they went through a good deal of alcohol than that means we will need to as well.
Does anyone have any good input or suggestions?
