I’m definitely going to want to drink, but my issue is usually not eating enough BEFORE that! So we’ve tried to plan out a yummy breakfast and lunch so that there’s a solid ‘base’ in haha. Knowing our friends, there will be lots of shots towards the end of the night :S

I had a couple glasses of champagne and then 1 or two glasses of wine.  I don’t think I actually finished any of the drinks completely though.  I’d get part-way through and then leave to go talk to people or dance and my drink would disappear.


Also, good call on drinking only white drinks.  I totally spilled wine all over myself because I knocked it over while trying to shake the photographer’s hand.  Luckily, it was white wine, and my dress was ivory.  No one noticed a thing!

I had a few drinks but was by no means drunk. I had a glass of champagne whilst getting ready and another in the limo on the way to the ceremony. I had another glass during the photos with our bridal party (which I didn’t finish, as it went warm – yuck!). I’m actually not 100% sure how many glasses I had at the reception, as the waitstaff kept topping off my glass whenever they walked past, but I spent a lot of time socialising so my glass was often left forgotten.

I think I had maybe four drinks total. Two with dinner, two throughout the evening afterwords. I did NOT want to get drunk at my own wedding.
