I had bloody marys and mimosas in the AM with my bridesmaids and champagne while taking family pics before the ceremony. My groom went to a bar w/ his guys to take pics before our first look .So…no I don’t think anything is wrong with it at all. Most weddings I’ve been in we have champagne in the limo on the way to the church/ceremony.

3 drinks?  3 seems like a lot and walking down the aisle sober isn’t so bad.  Last thing you want is to trip!  lol.  I think I had like half a mimosa the morning of, but don’t drink too much you have to pee during the ceremony or photos!

I would be on my ass drunk if I had 3 drinks! Lol! If it helps you calm your nerves though, go for it!

I’m planning on having a drink of something but no more than one.  My tolerance is pretty high but I would be afraid just in case.

Just make sure you eat during the day – or else those drinks will hit your really quick!

I have read numerous places that it is actually recommended to have A drink before the ceremony to calm your nerves. Obviously this depends on your tolerance level, but I would be careful …. I think we all know what happens later in the night if you kick off the drinking too early.  BUT I think 1-2 during the day leading up to the ceremony is totally understandable!

I’m definitely having mimosas at the salon for the ladies. I’ve also fallen in love with Bloody Marys, but am afraid of the stain factor.

I am making sure to set my limit low – if you’ll be sober enough to not slur through your vows, I don’t think 3 is too many Wink

My aunt is a drinker and also a really nervous person. Before her wedding we had mimosas in the morning and then had champagne while we were getting ready. The limo took the guys to the ceremony site first and then came and picked up the girls. They left us some heinekin LOL! We gave my aunt one because she was so nervous and it totally helped. I plan on doing the same for my wedding! 🙂
