    I don’t think it’s a big deal at all! Of course, my Darling Husband and I don’t drink, and neither do most of our friends… So, we didn’t have alcohol 🙂  I didn’t hear of anyone complaining

    My husband and I didn’t have alcohol at our wedding.  We are over 21, but neither of us are big drinkers.  In the end, we decided that we would rather save some money than spend it on alcohol.  I was really worried that guests might complain, but I never heard anyone say anything except how beautiful of a wedding it was.  At the end of the day, its your wedding.  I’m sure it will be perfect either way 🙂

    We are doing a champagne toast only and Fiance is 26 and Im 24. Not that we’re not drinkers or our families weren’t drinkers. It was just an extra expense and alcohol was not that importatnt to us.

    We don’t drink, so we’re not serving drinks. I think we’ll have a cash bar, however.

    I think some guests would definitely be disappointed. I’ve been to a couple weddings where I’d probably be disappointed if they didn’t, but I’ve also been to many where I am there to celebrate a good friends or family members marriage and I wouldn’t have cared at all if there wasn’t alcohol.

    I’d only be a little disappointed since there would be less chance of getting Fiance out on the dance floor if he didn’t have a drink or two in him.
