    We plan to have a few drinks but have made a deal not to get drunk until after the speeches/important stuff is over.  Neither of us are really the type to get “wasted” anyway.

    I think I probably had the equivalent of 1 glass of champagne all night. I was so nervous about having to pee in my dress that I barely drank anything.

    Darling Husband drank a bit more, but at most was just buzzed.

    Once we got to our room though, we split the bottle of champagne my parents had put in our room for us.

    I think my husband and I both had one drink each. Plus our champagne toast. We were way too busy to drink!

    We really like to drink, and so do all of our friends, so we are going to have limited alcohol at the reception (just beer and wine), but after the reception we are going to walk down a block to the strip of bars and continue partying!  I still won’t get schwasted because I will have to be at the family and Out of Town guest brunch the next day, but I am determined to have as much fun as possible!

    We had a couple glasses of wine each, but were nowhere near drunk. Not even tipsy. However, we’ve never been the type to get wasted anyway, so we knew we wouldn’t be at our wedding. Honestly, I just wanted water!  A lot of friends and family members got drunk though. Grandma walked out with an ice bucket on her head and DH’s Great Aunt was trying to hook up with one of our friends…Lol, it was an amazing night and I was glad I was sober to experience it all!

    We drank very moderately during the reception, especially early in the night when our grandparents were still there. Towards the end of the reception we drank more, but did our “real” drinking afterwards at a bar all of our friends went to together. I wouldn’t say either of us tried to get wasted or anything, just had a good time hanging out with friends we don’t get to see that often.

    I didn’t get wasted but I probably had a little more wine than I needed. Personally, I found that it hit me more quickly because I really hadn’t slept and I didn’t eat alot so keep that in mind. I had to cut myself off at the salon in the morning too because the champagne to calm my nerves was going down to well 🙂

    Fiance and I aren’t big drinkers to begin with… but we will definitely have a couple of drinks at our reception :).

    My husband had one or two cocktails, I didn’t have any. I was too fucking tired.

    We will definitely drink, but also definitely not get wasted!  I absolutely do not want to get wasted for several reasons (1) I want to remember every moment! (2) I don’t want to do anything stupid or spill anything on my dress (3) I want to be able to make sweet sweet wedding night love and not pass out once we go up to our rooms!

    He will probably have a few, but I will not.  I get red even from a couple sips of any alcohol, and don’t want my photographs to reflect that =)  I’m not a big drinker anyways, so no big deal.

    We both drank quite a bit during the whole reception, but at the same time we were both running around and dancing so much that we didn’t get drunk. I must have had like 6 glasses of champagne, but I never had to pee and didn’t feel tipsy at all because I was constantly moving around for 5 hours!

    Yes, my Fiance and I are planning on drinking at our wedding.  We will wait to start the real drinking until the dancing portion of the evening, and then after the reception my mom is planning on having an after party in her suites.  We (and all our friends and family) definitely like to party!
