Have you thought having an alcohol free wedding?

A friend was dealing with the same issues so she had an early afternoon wedding with punch, light refreshments etc.

She had a backup plan for a brother to walk her down the aisle in case her Dad had been drinking earlier in the day, but it turned out not to be needed.

@julies1949: You were reading my mind! lol I think that’s a wonderful idea and honestly should ease her stress a bit about what her father may or may not do.

OP as far as your parents being in the same location, that isn’t something that can be helped really. I am a product of a divorced family and I know how difficult that kind of gathering can be. However, it’s your day and they should be willing and able to push their feelings for each other aside and get along.

I think it will all work out just fine! Just try to place some ground rules and a non alcohol plan in place!! Good luck!! And welcome to the Boards!

I think the only way to handle this is to have a dry wedding. Theres no logical way to offer alcohol to your guests but ban your father from drinking. Unless of course you sit down with him and specifically ask him not too drink, but that probably wouldnt go over well with most alcoholics. Good luck with whatever you decide. =)
