    @Baby_PebbleS:  Soda here in the States would be something like Coke or Pepsi. Our lemonade isn’t carbonated, so no fizz.

    We are having soda, but we are also providing all of our own beverages. I couldn’t care one way or the other because I don’t drink it, but, our non alcohol drinking guests would expect it, and we would need it for mixers anyway.

    @7-9-11bride: I guess if Future Mother-In-Law puts up enough of a stink you could tell her she can pay the extra charge. 😉

    @red_rose: Haha I’m from the North and when I first moved down south, no one knew what I was talking about when I asked what type of pop they had… 😉

    The only reason we had soda was because about 1/4 of our guest list was teenagers.  I wanted them to have a lot of options other than alcohol!

    I really feel like she should be able to go one evening without soda – I can see how someone would want it with their meal if they don’t care for wine or beer but I’m sure they can suck it up and have lemonade.

    I would provide a regular and diet option as well as a clear soda. What coffee is to some people, Diet Pepsi is to me. Can people survive, yes. Will they be happy about it? Probably not. But you said few people re soda drinkers, so it may not be missed at your wedding. My family, however, loves their soda, so I will have it.

    We did.  We had Pepsi, Diet Coke, and Sprite…I think.  It was pretty popular, especially since we had a lot of kids there.

    I find it odd that Soda isnt on the bar.

    Not everyone drinks liquor, and those that do, sometimes want a fizzy drink. ( Rum & Coke) for example. I dont think its major enough to freak out over, but it is kind of odd.

    @7-9-11bride: If I remember correctly, we had soda to go with our liquor selection. As part of our beverage package, we got a sherbet based punch for those not drinking alcohol. It went over well. When we were at the buffet, I noticed that it was nearly empty, so we made a good call on it.
