honestly, its sad that you have to be concerned about the Christian guests judging the other guests. isnt non-judgemental qualities kinda a cornerstone of Christianity in the first place?  if the non-drinking guests have issues with the drinkers, they may wish to be reminded them to remove the log from their own eye, be in this world and not of it, judge not of others lest they be judged, and etc and etc.  if they have an issue with the other guests, they can take it up with a higher power.

 

 

sorry if that seemed harsh at all, I was raised very strict Baptist (dad’s still a pastor) and went to a private Christian school my whole life and it just KILLS me that Christians can be such bad witnesses for their own faith.

@ClairDarling: isnt non-judgemental qualities kinda a cornerstone of Christianity in the first place?

Lol – not in my experience.  Nobody’s ever judged me more than my church has.  But I do think all the guests should be at least mature and civil enough to understand that not everybody shares their beliefs, and that sometimes even those who do have different levels of what’s acceptable behaviour.  I doubt (I hope, anyway, I don’t know the people you’re inviting) that anyone is going to cause an issue at your bridal shower over something like that.  Try not to worry about it. 🙂

@deliciousappleblue: I totally agree with you on this one. Never felt more judged than by the Christians I grew up around.

That said, you can have a fabuous bridal shower that neither the Christians or non-Christians would have reason to feel uncomfortable at. I mean, it’s all about love, and good food, and fun, right? I’ve been to so many showers without alcohol that were beautiful and a ton of fun! Some really delicious and interesting fruit juices, good food, some games, and good company really make the day!

I completely understand where you are coming from. I have half of my guests who are wild radical jesus lovers and the other half who aren’t following the Lord. I keep thinking what are they going to think that its going to be more about God on all my celebrations etc. or what will they think that I’m not having drinking. However, I keep reminding myself that its what I want and I can’t let others influence that. I don’t want to throw it in their face that God is the only way, but he is the center of my life. i think alot of people know my bridal shower and wedding are going to be different! I want to celebrate that we are becoming one together. 

I’m actually excited that its all going to be different and not the traditional bridal shower/wedding that everyone is use to going to. Its a couple hours and they can deal with it right?

I’m a Christian and I drink, so no problem there (for me). But, your Christian guests shouldn’t be surprised that your non-Christian guests may drink too much (or if they’re conservative–drink at all). I don’t think it’s a big issue. Just make sure you can limit the drinking so nobody ruins the wedding (Christian or non-Christian).
