I didn’t think that I needed to say anything to them, but the groomsmen did start drinking pretty early. One if them NEVER drinks and is on a really restricted diet, but he was really feeling the wedding spirit and passed out while dinner was being served…whatever. I guess I should have asked them to chill out until the reception 🙂

@newname_99:  I’m assuming you guys plan on having all the paperwork done in advance? Otherwise the best man can’t drink until after he witnesses it, same goes for Maid/Matron of Honor and you and Fiance.

I would definately ask your fiance to get involved.  They are his friends, right?  He should be able to keep them in control until after the wedding.  I don’t think it is “bride-zilla” to ask.  Like you said, you don’t want a bunch of drunks at the wedding.  The party can start at the wedding.  I am sure they will understand.

My FI’s family is european and they are a very large family and have a lot of weddings. I remember once being buzzed at the church at 8:30AM….LOL It put me in an extra good mood and I didn’t even mind all the crying babies so much cause I was able to get my drank on! But yeah, is this the best man’s first time trying alcohol? Why so eager? What is he, like 4?
