    I would just rather that shes there. Im a non drinker and I went to a winetasting for my friends birthday and I still had a great time even tho I didnt drink. There was no way I would miss it if I was a bridesmaid

    sorry I put my vote as “I would expect her to taste the wine” but I meant to vote, “she should come but I don’t expect her to participate in the wine tasting.” sorry about that!

    I would think the day is about just being there for your friend during this very special time in her life.  Drinking or not drinking should not be an issue.

    I think you could still have a good time, even if you decide not to taste anything. Although, I’d encourage you to have a go if it’s been a while since you’ve had wine – you’re expected to spit it out anyway 🙂 It can be really fun trying to see if you can taste what they want you to (apples, berries, lavender, whatever!) Most wine tastings I’ve been to have also included some really delicious food and beautiful scenery, so even without the wine you should be able to have a good day!!

    I did a series of winery tours as part of my stagette.  Somebody had to be the driver, so someone had to hold back on the wine.  I see her as the perfect Dirty Delete. 

    Even if you aren’t driving around tasting wine, I don’t think having her sitting there not drinking is going to ruin YOUR fun, assuming she’s not cranky about being left out.

    I think it would be nice that you were there but I would hope they wouldn’t all get completely smashed and leave you dealing with a bunch of drunk girls.

    I don’t drink wine (I don’t like the taste but I prefer other alcoholic beverages even though I very rarely drink) so I personally would feel very out of place at an event like this. While having a designated driver is a good idea, it should not be at the risk of that person being bored or feeling left out. If I was the bride in a similar situation, I would want a different activity altogether that was arranged instead that everyone can enjoy and participate in equally. If the bridesmaids planning the event in question did not want to change their plans, then I (as the bride) would decline attending.
