I wouldn’t risk offending him ahead of time by bringing it up.  But I would be sure to point him out to the bartender so that they’re aware and will cut him off if it gets to that.  And be sure someone from the venue or a DOC, if you have one, is aware he is a concern of yours.

bride_to_be_060714:  Both of my parents were alcoholics when I had my first wedding. That’s why we had an early afternoon wedding with a no alcohol punch reception. We left after the reception for our honeymoon.My parents hosted an after party at their home and both of them were highy inebriated. But then again so was everyone else they hosted.

My inlaws, who didn’t drink, hosted the non drinkers at  a dinner at the hotel where they stayed.

It’s a bit unrealistic to think an alcoholic is not going to drink if you ask them not to. If it were that easy, they would all be recovering alcoholics, not active drinkers.
