    I don’t drink, so I was totally sober at my wedding, however my groom and my wedding party got completely trashed.  We had an awesome time, especially since the ceremony, reception and hotel were all at the same place and no one had to drive.

    @MsLabRat:  i might have a glass of wine, but no more than that. i always wake up feeling like SHIT the next day, and i don’t want to have to do brunch or fly in that condition. i also what to remember everything in crisp detail and not look a drunk mess in photos!

    I was a bit tipsy for most of the evening.  I wasn’t drunk though.

    @MsLabRat:  I plan to drink just enough to get me on the dance floor.

    I was pretty toasted. Not sloppy falling down or anything or anything though. 

    I had intended to pace myself but they just kept refilling my wine glass.  So it’s not really my fault, there was no way for me to accurately gauge how much I was actually drinking 🙂

    That’s one thing to keep in mind, full-service venues will always make sure the bride and groom have a full drink, so unless you tell them to do otherwise beforehand, that’s what is going to happen.

    I had three glasses of champagne, two beers, and a coffee with Baileys throughout a ten hour period of time. Meaning I was pretty much soccer because that was all spread out. I didn’t even consider getting drunk because I wanted to remember everything. I already felt pretty good that day without the help of alcohol.

    @MsLabRat:  Cheers to you!!!  Our #1 priority, budget wise, was a full-service ‘platinum’ open bar for us, and our guests!  Which means, I am going to enjoy it.  My FI and I have talked repeatedly about our ‘drinking’ expectations for one another, and I we really have not come up with single one.  I think we will be in complete bliss, drink in hand most of the night, but at the same time very aware that most eyes will  be on us too.  Which, will cause us to be more sober than we would at a wedding where we are just guests (bc we tend to over-enjoy…in a classy way of course…those weddings 🙂 ).

    People have asked me if I am worried about guests being ‘too drunk’, and I say ‘not at all!’.  How they behave is NO reflection on me, but rather themselves, so they can make adult decisions.  Period.  AND that adult decision would hopefully also include a DD, or taking us up on our cheaper hotel block, and FREE transportation for ANYONE going to and from that very place.

    I had a glass of champagne with the toasts and then one other drink that night. I’m not a big drinker to start with, but mostly I was just waaaay to busy to drink much other than water!

    Im hoping to just be goooood and not trashed…. Ive seen some pretty trashy LOOKING brides who were just soooo wasted lol. My g/f got married a month and a half ago and she ended up getting drunk but she was just hilarious. (she actually said she regrets it…but at the same time it wasnt on purpose)

    I personally find my stomach can get funny these days so the last thing I want is to be in a bathroom stall in my wedding dress puking lol

    I plan to be tipsy.  I have a feeling I’ll keep getting distracted talking to people and having to do things that I won’t drink as much.

    I’d imagine I’d be less drunk than I typically am as a guest Smile

    I thought I had to be worried and have my BMs on “drunk duty” (aka getting me water every time I took a sip of an alcoholic drink to counteract my low tolerance).

    But I ended up being too nervous to drink in the morning, and then too busy to drink during the wedding (we were on the dance floor the entire wedding…most of the guests were too, nobody drank all that much because they were too busy dancing!), and then by the time we got to the bar for the after party, I knew I hadn’t eaten much (nervous stomach) so I only had one drink. That one drink was my only full drink all night, other than a few sips of champagne during toasts.

    I was so freaking high on life, it was beyond not necessary (and I usually love drinking to help facilitate a good time on normal nights out). I was so happy and ecstatic I didn’t notice several (very very minor) things go wrong, and didn’t feel my feet that literally were bleeding from my shoes until two seconds before our sparkler exit.

    I tried to get drunk, but failed.  I think this happens to a lot of people.  You are moving around and talking to so many people, i found it really hard to get anything more than a slight buzz.  My sister said the same thing.
