    You should add a poll to this post!

    I’ll bet you can find a venue with a similar vibe that allows alcohol.

    Alcohol is my favorite part of other people’s weddings, lol!

    I would go ahead and save the money.  I had the same issue not that long ago because it is free to have the reception at the church but I can’t have booze so I was going to have it at my mom’s house.  In the end lack of funds decided for me.  Plus I don’t have to deal with the whole Fiance doesn’t want kids at the reception bit.

    We will just have the formal reception in doors that everyone can attend and then we will have an after party at my moms house with booze.

    Don’t pay extra money just so people can drink, if its that important to them have an after party gathering with booze.

    I went to a wedding last year that did this as well.  There was a formal reception at the camp ground and after we all gathered at the groom’s fathers house to have some good beer and celebrate the new couples happiness.

    I think if the wedding is midday, no alcohol will be fine. Especially since your wedding will be so small, everyone there should be close enough that free booze won’t be the first thing on their mind 🙂
