Is it muttar to serve booze at simchas?
Is it muttar? Obviously it is.
Is it a good idea? And, if it is done, what responsibilities do the guests and the ba’al simcha have?
Those are other questions that should be debated. But the answer to your question in the OP is very simple — yes, it’s muttar.

What exactly is the question? Is it whether it is muttar or assur? Then why do you need pros and cons? If its assur, it’s assur. If it’s muttar, it’s muttar. You want opinions on it?!May 15, 2012 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #1216745bptParticipant
Its a chiyuv gamur. Unless its a taanis, in which case its a nidcha. But the minute the zman arrives, bottoms up!May 15, 2012 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1216746popa_bar_abbaParticipant

I really think if someone has the generousity of providing a bar by a simcha, he neverthless has the responsibility and authority to make rules or regulations to somehow prevent anyone from drinking too much. 13 yr old kids can be plain stupid, and yes even 20 and 25 yr olds can be dumb and drink irresponsibly too. it is an awesome responsibility, but you CAN’T have a bar without some sort of supervision these days. to have a bar is nice, but c’mon, let’s not fool ourselves, there are alchoholics amongst us.May 17, 2012 12:44 am at 12:44 am #1216752Yamoos7123Member

It makes the simcha for so many people! No matter how happy one is for a chosson and Kallah, when someone hears they are going to a dry wedding they are ” bummed”.December 30, 2015 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #1216754

who are you serving it to? local law dictates who you may or may not serve “booze” to and who carrier liability for serving to those who the law says you should not serve.December 30, 2015 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #1216758
Am I silly?
Fair enough… I should criticize the opinion, not the person. My apologize.
If you’re seriously positing that it is absolutely required to serve booze at a simcha, then your opinion is a silly one.
The WolfDecember 30, 2015 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #1216759
Ugh. My apologies.

Whether or not it’s muttar to serve drinks at a simcha, it is not muttar to crash/sneak into a simcha in order to drink their booze, even if the baal hasimcha let you in to get some cake and especially not if the baal hasimcha kicked you out.

This is a good question.
What happens when someone serves alcohol at a simcha and then all the guests drive home afterward?
Did they all organize sober drivers to take them home?February 6, 2017 4:33 am at 4:33 am #1216765iacisrmmaParticipant
There maybe some legal issues depending on State law. Are we talking about a simcha where there is a bartender serving drinks or the “mashkeh” is on the table? If it is on the table and the person decides to drink it is his/her responsibility to arrange a designated driver. If there is a person serving the alcoholic beverages then, depending on the state, there may be rules as to how much you can serve to a person.;February 6, 2017 5:51 am at 5:51 am #1216766lakewhutParticipant
