The venue that we’ve been looking at since our engagement is beautiful! It’s a boathouse in our town, and it’s a very reasonable price. But it’s a park, so no alcohol! Is this a deal breaker for guests? Most of them are out of town, but they’re all extended family. We’re having an 80 guest wedding, but all of our close friends live in town, so I’m afraid they’ll be disappointed at that. Would you go to an evening wedding without alcohol?
Or is an after party worth looking in to? We have a some bars/restaraunts downtown that rent out their lofts as long as you’re purchasing from them. Maybe just invite anyone who wants to celebrate with a drink afterwards? Or is that just too much for one bride and groom in a day?

I really like being able to have a cocktail at a wedding….a lot.
But honestly – if someone skips a wedding because there is no alcohol or considers it a “dealbreaker” they’re either an alcoholic or don’t give two shits about the couple. Bottom line.

I like to drink at weddings, not gonna lie. It would not keep me from attending, though.

To me, I go to a wedding to be with the couple on their special day. Drink or no drink, I’m going to have a good time!

If you’re expecting a big party with music and dancing and such, I think that might be difficult without alcohol. I also think people will leave earlier than usual.

I’m torn because that is such a GORGEOUS venue but I also would miss a few cocktails at a wedding. I wouldn’t skip still a wedding of someone I cared about because of a no-alcohol policy but I definitely would not have as enjoyable of a time, just being honest.

I would never skip a wedding b/c of no alcohol, but I’d never have a dry wedding. This would be a deal breaker for me as the hostess.

I mean most us like to have a drink or two but I would still attend the wedding if there wasn’t any beer/drinks.
