Our venue required a liquor license as well as alcohol insurance, so we opted to not have it. (Also due to some crazy alcoholics in the family…)
Anyways, we are making up the invitations. Should this be something we note on there? If so, what is a nice way to word it?

I dont really think its necessary to mention something like that in the invitation.

For what it’s worth, I would word it nicer than "No alcohol allowed!"
Something more along the lines of "Due to restrictions with the venue, alcohol will not be served at the reception."

We had the same issue, and we decided to not mention it at all. Truthfully, I was afraid that the alcoholics in the group would use the advance notice to just bring their flasks!!! And I’m of the opinion that alcohol should not be expected at a wedding. I invite people over to my house all the time and don’t have any alcohol to give them. As a hostess it’s my responsability to offer them something nice to drink, but it doesn’t have to be alcoholic. So therefore, I don’t think it’s necessary to mention anything on the invite. Good luck!!!

I mentioned it to someone and they told me unless the invitation specifically mentioned an open bar, they wouldn’t assume there would be alcohol.
Thanks for the advice.

I can’t say I’ve ever heard of a wedding invitation saying either way. I’d say leave it off; but if people inquire be honest.

I agree , thereÂ should be no assumptions as far as drink provided. I don’t think it is needed to print this on the invites.

no need to mention! a good guest shouldn’t ever complain about what’s being served. 🙂 at least out loud, hehe. everyone will be there for the love of you both, so dont worry about the restrictions. you’ll have to make it up with good food and dessert then! 🙂
