I took a shot of rum. The wine ran out. But really, we HAD chilled wine….but after pouring all my bridesmaids/mom a glass, there was none left for me =].

I am planning to have a mimosa in the morning with my girls and then I am going to have shots for the entire bridal party right before the ceremony (we are doing pictures before hand).

My mom will be watching me like a hawk, because she has told me “You will not be a drunk bride!!!”

However, I plan on having at least a glass of champagne or a mimosa or two while getting ready.  I get flushed really easily from drinking though so I don’t want to overdo it before pictures.  I was thinking of getting those little mini bottles of champagne for me and my girls for while we get ready 🙂

ditto MrsMartin… i am planning on having a mimosa while getting ready cuz that’s all i’ll be able to handle… then who knows for afterward, but i’m a light weight and won’t be drinking a lot at the reception either!

I’ll definately want one drink before the ceremony to take the edge off. Then I’ll want one more before the grand entrance to the reception. I’m worried about having to pee with the huge, million-layer dress so I’m worried that drinking= peeing could be a pain. Oh well! We’ll see..

heehee! We had mimosas, and then when the champagne ran out, baybreezes 🙂 It’s hard to feel “drunk” when you are so full of crazy wedding energy. I wouldn’t worry about it, unless you get drunk off fumes like some girls. I’m not one of those girls.

There’s a very big line between having a drink to take the edge off and being a wasted face!

I’m definately going to have a glass of wine or maybe even a shot of tequilla an hour before the wedding to relax my nerves. I’m hoping I or my Fiance do not over do it during the reception though! I want to enjoy every minute and not end up with a headache the next day!

Will definately need a slight buzz before walking down the isle – beer gives me the nicest happiest buzz, or maybe champaigne…

A round of shots for the ladies before we head down the isle sounds perfect to me – count me in on this idea!

We’re doing b’fast for the BM’s, mom, aunts, etc. hair & makeup at my parents house. My mom keeps saying how she wants a whole spread, “You have to eat a big breakfast beause you won’t get to eat until much later” and I’m sure she’ll have my dad on Mimosa & BloodyMary duty. I think my mom’s more psyched to host breakfast than she is for the rest of the day! LOL

No shots allowed for me, but I’ll have a mimosa or 2 depending on how my nervous stomach is.

FI’s from a huge Irish fam and they jokingly call Jameson “Mother’s Milk”. It’s tradition in their fam for the men to have a shot before any big event – it’s actually on our photog. picture list that they capture it. LOL I’m not worried at all that he will be drunk. I know he won’t. However, I might arm his brother with altoids so there’s no Whiskey breath on the alter. 🙂

One tequila shot with the girls to take the edge off!

It would have to be Xanax for me; my health doesn’t allow me to have a drink. Hopefully I will just be pleasantly “buzzed” with excitement on the day, and won’t need to take it.
