My fiance and I do not want alcohol at our reception and it turns out our reception is at our church so they do not allow alcohol anyway. How do we tell this to our guests… Especially since a few of them “like their alcohol”

My Fiance and I aren’t having any alcohol for many reasons one being my father is a drunk… If it comes up in conversation or I feel I need to tell someone I just tell him or her… For those who I don’t talk to on day-to-day bases they will find out on our wedding day lol

We’re not mentioning it to them. We’d like to believe that those attending will know us well enough to know that we would not include alcohol. If we know that an individual may be a problem (such as one who gave FH flak when he stopped drinking to support me) we’ve mentioned to them that the location does not allow outside alcohol at weddings in hopes to prevent someone sneaking in a flask or some nonsense.

@Sah: My father is the same way and that was a big reason why we don’t want it, plus we will have just turned 21 and we aren’t interested in alcohol anyway

That is the only thing I worry about because I don’t want a scene. I told my mom that if she see’s a person trying to bring alcohol to tell them it’s not allowed and they need to put it in their car, I just hope it works out okay and no one gets mad about it

I put it in our wedding website. I know a bunch of my friends drink, but we didn’t hear one negative word about it. 🙂

I would just put dinner and dancing to follow at… wherever. You can have family pass it by word of mouth, but I don’t think you have to openly say it anywhere.
