My fiance and I love to have a good time. We enjoy alcohol and secular music. We love to dance and many of our friends and family do as well, but my father is a pastor. There is a large group of family members that are very strong Christians with really strong beliefs. I want them all to be part of my wonderful day and I want to be comfortable, but I don’t want to offend anyone or risk critical comments of my reception down the road. What should I do. I want music dancing alcohol the works! Lol My parents are not paying for the wedding but I am very close to them and don’t want to see me in a bad light. Suggestions?

Welcome to the Hive!
Have you talked to them about what your plans are? I think that if you talk to them you might be able to come to an easy solution, but I would think if you slowly ramped up the evening then everyone would be ok.

Christians drink, (at least I’m pretty sure there are no rules against it) so alcohol should be ok.
As far as the music, it can be lively and entertaining, but maybe make sure the DJ doesn’t play anything sexual or profane? In other words no Humpty Dance lol! And you could always throw a private shoutout to the younger attendees like “No bumping and grinding allowed or my aunt will have a cow.”
Other than that, relax and have a good time. It’s about you and your husband, not anyone else’s beliefs or agenda. Though kudos for being such a considerate hostess.
