I’ve been to two dry weddings at a church, and they were both fine. However, it depends what most of your guests are like.  Are they mainly big drinkers or hard partiers?  If so, they prolly will miss the alcohol; if not, it won’t matter.

I wouldnt be offended, but you’ll probably want to prepare yourself that people will most lleave early. Most all dry wedding receptions I’ve attended endEd well before the anticipated end time. For some not only was there no alcohol but also no dancing and people honestly just got bored. For the others, there was dancing but people just didn’t loosen up enough to dance. 

FWIW my Fiance and I are not drinkers. Well, he’s a non-drinker for personal reasons and I dont out of respect for him. our family and friends are big drinkers and wE will be hosting a full open bar. I feel as though we are Hosting this party to thank our guests for sharing in our day and part of that is hosting a party we think the majority of our friends would enjoy. We have no issue with others drinking or being drunk.

My BFF’s inlaws do not drink for religious reasons. At their kids weddings they would not pay for alcohol, so the couples paid for it themselves. Their parents would haVe preferred no alcohol but  respected that they were adulls.

For me, I would pay for the wedding myself if my parents wanted to make such a request. But ultimately it’s up to you and your Fiance.

ETA: please excuse my horriblen’t young I’m on an iPad 🙂

I would still attend, but I might not stay as late as I would at a normal reception – especially if it wasn’t a very close friend or family member. Then again, it could end up being a blast, you never know. It depends on your guests
