There will be no alcohol at my reception because it is in a public park. I don’t wanna pay for booze anyway so that’s fine by me! My house is nearby so I think I’ll let my friends drink a little before the reception starts or they can swing by my home and drink, as long as they have a designated driver to get back to the reception.

I am having a completely dry reception 😀 As someone who is deathly allergic to alcohol it is the only way to go but I still do get a lot of rude comments. Every wonder why some people say the need alcohol to have a good time?

We’re having a dry reception, the location wont allow alcohol. My hubby and I decided to throw a BYOB after party at our house.

We are having a dry reception! My husband has been alcohol-free for 18 years and I was never able to tolerate the stuff. Anyone who knows us will not be surprised by the lack of alcohol. However our reception will be early Friday evening so if folks want to go drinking afterwards – fine!

Were having my daughters reception at a park hall. We are only allowed alcohol if we get a permit ($150). So between the cost of that and the alcohol itself were thinking no. But I’m also hoping people can still have fun. I’m worried that for some it isnt possible.

We are not having a dry reception but we are doing wine and beer only (and maybe a signature drink). Liquor will be available to those who want to purchase it. Your guests are there to celebrate you and your fiance and it shouldn’t matter if the reception is dry or not!

We are having a dry reception, as well! We do not drink very much — and while I would like to have wine or something as an option — his family is very anti-alcohol.

Just a little wine and champagne for us. We are doing a luncheon as our reception and I don’t think it’s nescessary to be throwing back liquor before 5pm. lol. That’s been my answer to rude comments. Than I look at them quizically as if I’m asking if they often take shots with their lunch.
