When planning your wedding, ask the groom's family to be in charge of, and pay for any alcohol beverages served. If you aren't serving alcohol, the groom's parents (or the groom) can pay for another part of the reception.
We, as the groom' parents, were informed that we were responsible for the alcohol. There were only about 10 guests from the groom's side in attendance because of the location of the wedding, and none drink! The bill was substantial, but we gulped and paid it without a squeak of protest.
Anyway you slice it, the groom's side is usually responsible for a portion of the wedding, as well as the rehearsal dinner the night before. Sad but true, when the parent's of the groom have almost no say in any of the festivities.
