I wod be perfectly fine with attending a BYOB wedding! i woild be articularly understanding if the bride and groom do not drink. However, I’m from a place in canada where a reduced cash bar (toonie bar) is customary, where you pay $2 for drinks at weddings. I’ve never been to a wedding with a host bar. Regardless I say do as you wish! You don’t need the long explanation. It’s your day and at the end of it all, you’re still allowing your guests to drink if they want!

beltacular2008: I don’t even think that you HAVE to provide a BYOB type of wedding. If you’re uncomfortable with alcohol being there, just have a dry wedding. If being around alcohol and people drinking doesn’t make you uncomfortable, just spread the BYOB message through word-of-mouth.
Congratulations on 5 years of sobriety!

I would omit the last two sentences of 2nd paragraph. You don’t owe any one an explanation of how you choose to spend your money. And in the 3rd paragraph everything from “so we…beverage” until we have permission …

I hate alcohol in everyway possible. I even hate to be around people drinking it! Your policy of not providing it is fine by me.
My husband and I had a completely dry wedding, no alcohol whatsoever. Wouldn’t change a thing.
I would be so happy to be invited to a completely dry wedding one day. =)

GroovyHippieChick: is she was providing it at an open bar it would be easy for her to be tempted to get some, if people have it in a cooler or sealed container then she’s not going to go rooting around in other people’s containers and her guests are also not going to give her alcohol if she asks for it…
