    Alcohol is a big part of the reason why my wedding might be moved. 🙁 

    Prohibition is still alive and well in some parts of the country.

    My SO really doesn’t want to have alcohol at the wedding. He hates being around drunk people and really doesn’t like social drinking much. I’m not very attached to alcohol and there are several alcoholics in my family who I think would appreciate it being dry. We’re also planning on having an afternoon party so hopefully people will be ok without alcohol. Instead we are thinking about having a keg of rootbeer from a local brewery that is famous for its rootbeer.

    Everyone I know loves to have a drink, unwind and have a good time. We couldn’t afford a full bar so we did wine, beer and champage. However, there were also bottles that were brought in from outside (allowed by the venue) and all of our good friends got pretty drunk. The true “adults,” aka my parents’ friends, were fine with the classy wine lol.

    I originally wanted beer and wine only but when we decided to have The Itty Bitty Tiny Wedding, we realized it wouldn’t be much more (with our venue’s prices) to go full bar and decided heck, why not?

    I do have Netflix, maybe I’ll watch it. I can understand why the women were upset back then. For a lot of them their lives weren’t that good and I could see them putting the blame on alcohol. When in reality it was just the mindset back then. Outlawing alcohol wasn’t going to make better husbands or fathers but again I understand, sometimes you need to put the anger somewhere.

    We will not be having any alcohol even champagne due to alcoholics in the family. It’s rude to ask an alcoholic to watch others drink. Some people just can’t be around it at all even though they’re sober now.

    My family likes to party – we’re having a full open bar for cocktail hour and the reception.

    Nah, we’s getting trashed…

    Yeah: when having a full bar you always run the risk of people making fools of themselves. We are running that risk…but…I really do not give a hoo. Imma enjoy myself.

    Neither myself nor my Fiance drink, so we’re not having any alcohol.  Both of us were exposed to alcoholic family members, so neither of us really have any desire to drink.

    We would never have had a dry wedding, doing a top shelf open bar. However we would attend a wedding that was dry, or limited open bar, or cash bar.

    Just from reading your post, offer a cash bar. Let your guest enjoy the way they want too if alcohol isn’t that important to you guys. Make sure you put somewhere in your wedding invitations that its a cash bar.
