Let me get this straight…you’re upset bc there won’t be any alcohol allowed at your shower that would further enable a known alcoholic in your bridal party?

Its your shower. She’s not hosting as far as I can tell and I don’t see how the location will cause drama for you. If she can’t support you for a couple hours without a drink then she doesn’t need to come. Her problem, not yours.

She is in charge of her own decisions and actions. You can’t do anything about what she does. It sounds like a lovely wedding shower. If she explodes over it, it’s her problem. Who knows, maybe she will pull through and be a lovely person at your lovely event.

There was no reason to tell anyone that there won’t be alcohol at the shower. When she comes to the shower and discovers there is no alcohol, she may leave early, but she won’t be drunk.

QuietStorm :  I”m confused by a lot of thigns here.

One: she is an alcholic train wreck and you have her as a bridesmaid 

Two: you can’t have alcohol at the bridal shower and you are upset that it being dry will then in turn upset the drunk bridesmaid.

Why the **** would you even entertain the idea of this woman being in your bridal party. Cause I hate to clue you in but it ain’t gonna get any better.

I agree with a PP, no need to tell anyone it will be dry or not. If attendees are upset that there won’t be alcohol then they don’t have to stay the full time.

If it’s really important to you to have your friend stay the entire time, why not go out to brunch before hand and order mimosas? That way she’ll be a bit buzzed when she arrives and hopefully, that will carry her through the event?

What the hell to the poster suggesting you bring her to get alcohol before the shower.

OP if this girl is a close enough friend for you to make her a bridesmaid why aren’t you supporting her properly? how can you that she is an alcoholic and yet you’re annoying your event DOES’NT include alcohol ?
