    I’m worried about getting too drunk at the wedding – I have a tendency to, er, overimbibe – so I already have a plan for when during the day I’m allowed to have a drink. I’m going to space it out earlier at the actual wedding and then I’ll be able to afterparty with friends. That’s the plan, anyway 🙂  We’ll see if I can stick to it.

    My hubs drank a little, but I didn’t drink one DROP.  Not even for the champagne toast.  Which bums me out because I was really looking forward to some bubbly.  But my stomach decided to do a number on me in the days leading up to the wedding, and the hardest thing I was drinking was pepto bismol. 

    *edit: I didn’t vote in your poll bc none of the options were for one drank, the other didnt!

    Uh I picked the last one, I won’t lie Embarassed

    We had a potluck reception and some of our friends brought jello shots, another brought rum punch, and we had beer and champagne there of course. It was flowing. But I wasn’t alone. EVERYONE was doing jello shots, it was funny to see our older guests do one. No one was over the top or anything, we all just all had a really good time.

    I think I had a similar experience! I had a drink nearby almost all day, but I never got drunk. I threw in a few glasses of water and a soda, and I wasn’t hammering down drinks, but I drank all afternoon. Weird…

    I haven’t gotten married yet, but I’m planning on drinking in MODERATION on the wedding day. Our BMs/GMs and many friends there will be our college & drinking buddies and it will definitely be tempting to overimbibe.  I want to remember every second of the day, but it won’t hurt to have a couple of drinks to relax.

    I’ll prob be the same way – drinking, but not drunk. I save that for friends’ weddings, haha!

    Noelle – i love your icon!

    I had maybe 2-3 beers that whole night, because like you I’ve been at a wedding or two where the bride and/or groom gets super drunk and it’s kind of embarassing… I definitely didn’t want to be a big mess.  We also were catching our flight at 10:30 AM the next morning so that was some incentive not to get too crazy.

    I do think your  husband is right about wedding magic though – at our friends’ wedding weekend I drank a LOT at the festivities Friday and Saturday night but avoided any kind of hangover or absurd drunkenness.  It was very, very odd…

    We both drank quite a bit, especially when the dancing started and all the “formalities” were over with. I would say we were both drunk, but not to the point of embarassment. We were just having a good time.

    I do agree with one thing though, I am prone to hangovers and I felt great the next morning.

    Here’s hoping for some wedding not-too-drunk-no-hangover magic for me! Someone should bottle that and sell it on Etsy.

    me too kittyachi! I’d buy it.  but in the meantime – booze water booze water etc, a post wedding newlywed workout, and a hearty breakfast should hopefully do it!

    Um let’s face it. We were both drunk. We were happy drunk. I had a few cocktails, he had a few gin and tonics, we all had a blast. We weren’t too intoxicated to the point we were a mess and we certainly didn’t look it, but let’s face it–our wedding was a party and EVERYBODY was drinking and dancing. It was so so so much fun. Too many of my friends were too stressed out to enjoy the night and after all that and after all that money we paid, dammit if i’m not gonna have some beer, relax, and dance. At the end of the night we were like, “ooo…i think i’m kinda drunk!”

    I remember having quite a few drinks but not being sloppy intoxicated…it was like that buzz beyond one or two drinks, but still perfectly in control. Yet knowing 100% you’re a little drunk and shouldn’t drive a car or anything of that nature. I think I wouldn’ thave had as much fun without a few drinks. It helped take the edge off of such a stressful day! And I still enjoyed it just as much

    I didn’t wake up hungover either! But my feet hurt and my heart hurt from all those bobby pins =]

    I plan to only drink for the toast. Same with my SO.

    I think it is okay to drink at weddings but I want to be 100% clear headed on my special day 🙂
