So I love to enjoy a martini, a glass of wine or a vodka drink..whether at home or out with friends…BUT…..my fiance and I have definitely discussed how much we are going to drink at the wedding..
I think he will def start drinking before me..I am one concerned about the pictures….when I drink too much, I get that crazy smile and what I like to refer to as a lazy eye or drunk face..and I DEF DON’T WANT THIS FOR MY PICS!
So I think I’m not drinking anything until after the cocktail hour – I want to 1)remember the entire day and 2) not look tipsy…it will be hard though I’m sure..as alcohol will likely calm my nerves!
Thoughts? Are you guys drinking or isn’t it really a concern?

Well, my SO doesn’t drink much at all. I don’t either ONLY because I get what we call the “asian blush” not to mention when I drink more than one glass of wine or champagne, I don’t get drunk I just get really really sleepy. I DON’T WANT TO PASS OUT ON MY WEDDING DAY!!!
We will have a champagne toast, but the for whole night we are stocking up on the Sparkling grape juice!

Oh man…good point! I look like a psychopath in my drunk pics, and Fiance looks like he could doze off at any minute.
We will have to watch our intake…

I’m with you on not wanting to look drunk in pix! lol I plan on drinking, but not like I’m at the club or something. I just want to feel nice and really relaxed, but I don’t want to look sloopy in pix. I’ll probably stick to 3 or 4 glasses of wine.

I feel like regardless of how much I might drink in the morning/afternoon (because I will be knocking back mimosas and champagne), my adrenaline and the excitement of the day will help keep me from looking or acting or even being drunk. It’s the reception I’m worried about, but you know what, that’s OK. That’s why I am having an open bar! It’ll be time to let go, have fun and stop worrying about pretty.

I’m not a big drinker so it wasn’t a problem. I wouldn’t worry about drinking after the cocktail hour since not a lot of pictures are really taken then.

it was a no brainer for us- it gives me migraines and him tummy problems. we never drink. my cousin got drunk at her wedding and ended up looking a hot mess. even if i did drink, after seeing that it would be enough to keep me sober for a night.

My Fiance and I both know our limits, so we have no problem drinking at the wedding. It will mostly be beer and wine, so I’m not too worried.

I won’t have much because I can’t hold my liquor to begin with. I’ve told Fiance that I’d prefer him to wait to go crazy until AFTER he’s done his speech. I want him to remember the night!

We know our limits, but we also love the booze on special occasions. It’s easy to get carried away at something as exciting as a wedding, especially your own, and since people get drunk more easily in novel/exciting situations than they do at their favorite old dive bar, we will probably be setting some rough limits for ourselves. It’s not like we’d ever end up so drunk that we’d be hanging over the toilet bowl later that night (I’ve NEVER been this drunk), but I think it will be good for us to make a conscious effort to get nothing more than a bit of a buzz!

I’m not a huge drinker, but probably will nurse a glass of white wine over the night. I’m more excited about the pop we’re getting from a local place and drinking it out of the funky vintage looking bottles! LOL! I’ve told Fiance he can drink a bit, but he’s not allowed to get drunk. I don’t think I’ve ever told him before he’s “not allowed” to do something, but we both agree that it’s too expensive of a day to not be able to remember the next day. Plus if we want to… umm…. have a *private* celebration, I don’t want the alcohol to interfere with the party going if you catch my drift… LOL!

My fiance’ and I have talked quite a lot about this issue…neither of us are big drinkers but we usually do have a drink or two every few days (beer, cocktail, a glass of wine, etc)
As far as our wedding we both have agreed to drink just at the champange toasts and we can each have a small drink before hand as well. It will work for us …I know a few people who have regretted how much they drank, and others who haven’t…so I think it depends on the couple but I know that for us, I want to be “100% there” but also relaxed, so hopefully this plan will work for us 🙂

We were SO ready for a drink by the time the reception rolled around, we had two while we were talking to people. We were being responsible (we’re good at knowing our limits) and by about 830pm or so (photographer was leaving at 930pm), I figured, “screw it, i’m having a few drinks”. We were feeling good by about 9pm. We don’t look wasted, I didn’t forget my wedding, we didn’t set limits or anything on each other, we just played it by ear and had a good time. No point getting too stuffy once the photographer leaves! We had a good “party buzz” going on, but we WERE NOT smashed, drunk, ridiculous, or stupid. Just enough to allow us to have a good time, forget how tired we were, cut loose a little, and chill out. We had an open bar–our guests were imbibing, our friends were imbibing, it was all good

I’ll probably have a glass of wine before to calm my nerves, but I’ll just have a little champagne and maybe a couple cocktails at the reception. I don’t want to drink anything more because my eyes always look glassy and red if I get tipsy!
