Congrats on your recovery!  I’m not in your position, but I have an uncle whom I’m very close with who hasn’t had any alcohol in 20 years!  He’ll be at my wedding, which is going to be open bar, and he just makes the choice every day to not drink.  It’s a tough road, but hang in there!  If you think it’ll be better for you, go ahead and have a dry wedding!  I’ve been to them and they’re just as fun!  Your wedding guests shouldn’t need alcohol to have a good time, they’ll have a good time just celebrating you!

I want to say congratulations on your sobriety. Don’t feel alone, feel proud. You should be.

@Miss Rosie: Congratulations on being in recovery. I know from the opposite side how hard it is. My Fiance is a recovering alchoholic and I am the one that drinks socially. We are getting him a “signature” nonalchoholic drink for the wedding that will be available for everyone, so he won’t feel out of place. We haven’t decided what it will be yet, but he is totally on board with it. We are also having limited alchohol at the wedding. We will have white wine and bottled beer; no champagne. For the toasts, everyone can just drind whatever they have in their glass at the time.

I don’t think you should view it as a “pity party” at all. As the daughter of a parent who has been in recovery for many years, I give you a lot of credit for working at your recovery each and every day. Best wishes for a long, happy, healthy life!
