Setting: Sunday in July on a lawn at the beach. Open bar. Ceremony is at 10am and brunch is served noon-2pm, with the bar remaining open until 4pm. No dancing, just relaxing with friends and family on a beautiful summer day with some live piano music in the background.
Water, Juice, Coffee and Iced Tea are table service.
How many alcoholic drinks would YOU drink?

If there’s no wine I would probably have maybe 1 cocktail. I’m not a huge drinker, but I tend to drink a LOT more at weddings at night. Mostly because I need some liquid courage to dance, since I have been told numerous times that I am a horrible dancer 🙂

If my son wouldn’t be with me with me, and my fiance would be driving, I would probably drink 2-3 glasses of champagne/mimosas. It’s a 4 hour affair, so if I were to stay the whole time, that would be a little under a drink an hour. HTH 🙂

I voted four, but it would in the 3-4 range. I think I’d get too caught up with the scenery and catching up with family/friends to remember to drink!
Also, your wedding sounds really cool!

At weddings I normally have 2 glasses of wine, a glass of champagne and 2 cocktails.

I voted 3 cocktails. For the time of day, location, and temperature I know that I wouldn’t want to drink any more than what would give me a very light buzz.
Above all of these, I would choose a wine however (preferably something chilled), above beer or cocktails.

I usually drink 3-4 rum and cokes when I go out. If there was wine, I might drink 2-3 glasses.
ETA: This is of course assuming I’m not driving! Also, I’ve never attended an afternoon wedding so I might drink a tad less than what I’ve written since those numbers are based on evening events.

I want to revote. I go for 3 drinks. Whatever form that comes in. I LOVE iced tea so I’d be happy, it’s so difficult to come across in the UK 🙁

I voted 3 cocktails, but depending on how weak they are, maybe 4. Four hours is a long period of time, so one an hour seems about right. I was just at a sorority formal and had 6 in 2 hours, but I wouldn’t want to be that…relaxed…at a wedding. Haha.

@sweetpea87: Ha! See, FI’s frat brothers are all flying in for the event…so I imagine it will become that…relaxed in the afternoon. 😉

OK so I should have read the senario before voting.. I voted for 3 cocktails.. but I find it very hard to drink in the morning… I would MAYBE have a mimosa… but thats all.

@Bostongrl25: No, no wine. We went round and round on it and concluded that all of our friends that drink wine would not do so with brunch. They will choose champagne/mimosas instead. I might re-think that if I hear differently from guests.
