My Fiance and I have decided to have an alcohol free reception due to several reasons including cost, family with alcohol addiction, and a somewhat dangerous road home for some guests. There will be cider for toasting, and a large selection of other drinks, but all of it non-alcoholic. Do I need to include something about it being an alcohol free event on the invitations ? Will people be disappointed otherwise?

You do not need to mention it on your invitations. Not every social event needs to involve alcohol.

How many of your friends and family drink? Is it a big deal to have alcohol at most of your gatherings?
I’m not sure I’d mention it on the invitiations, could you spread the word by word of mouth? Some people will be disappointed, sure, but they should be able to stand a few hours without drinking (or make plans to go out after it’s done).

I wouldn’t worry about it. We told our parents so if people ask but otherwise there is no mention of it.

I would just mention it through word of mouth. You will likely have alot of people complain but they’ll get over it!
