    I’ve only ever been to one wedding that had alcohol and most people in attendance actually didn’t drink any of it. They drank the non-alcoholic selections instead. If a person requires alcohol to be able to enjoy themselves at all, then they have personal issues to deal with on their own time. Countless people know how to and do have fun without alcohol at any given time. If someone doesn’t feel they are able to, then they have every right to stay home. Given that it’s a morning wedding, most people won’t be drinking alcohol anyway since it’s more of a nighttime thing. Your family and friends should be there to celebrate with you, not to see how drunk they can get on your dime.

    I think if the wedding is going to be dry then having it in the morning is a great idea. At a night wedding–to be honest–I’d be pretty disappointed if there was no alcohol. A morning wedding is just a totally different event imo. Alcohol is definitely not needed.

    I’m not at all a morning person, but I would definately be up to celebrate a wedding, and I wouldn’t be expecting alcohol in the morning.  I think it would be a lovely and unique event!

    I would probably be a bit disappointed there weren’t mimosas or something but you know what? That’s just my opinion and it’s not MY wedding, it’s YOUR wedding! 

    We all have to make our weddings work financially and if you and your fiance will be happy with it, then that’s all that matters…

    I’d be cool with it–9am isnm’t too early for me (shoot i work at 630am sometimes) but I agree a mimosa or champagne would make for a festive glass (and it’s not like someone’s going to get hammered that early!)

    Will eliminating those things bring you up to 2K? Is there any one, bigger ticket item that you can do without?

    I think a dry, morning wedding would be great! This way you could serve a light brunch instead of a big heavy meal and save on both alcohol and food.

    I say go for it.  We are looking at an early afternoon wedding and since we are having an afternoon reception that is in a state park we are not allowed alcohol.  We prefer it this way.  I don’t want a bunch of drunk people trying to drive back to their homes and hotels on the windy roads.

    The only thing I would “worry” about is when you’re going to get your hair done and such (if you are)  A friend just got married at 11am last weekend and they had to start getting their hair done at 11am.

    I think it depends on your guests. I personally wouldn’t mind skipping alcohol at all, and my friends and family are the same way.

    I would be a little hesitant about 9AM. That’s so early! Why not do like a brunch? It’ll give you time to get ready (hair, makeup, dressing yourself, groom, bridesmaids, setting up ceremony and reception stuff, etc) without getting up at 5AM. Guests will really appreciate it as well.
