Stick to your guns girl! If people don’t get it then it’s their problem, if they want to know why just say ” My Fiance and I just prefer things this way”. If people don’t want to go to your wedding just because there’s no booze are those the people that you really want to share your big day with anyway?

@bsbee:  I’m not anti alcohol at all both Fiance and I enjoy a drink, but we are not having an open bar for some of the same reasons that you are not having any booze at your celebration. FI’s brother has already been given the job of making sure that their mother doesn’t go overboard (she gets drunk and starts to sob and tell anyone who will listen that she really didn’t mean to try and kill herself 4 times she just didn’t know what she was doing). If we see that things are getting out of control our venue staff has orders to shut the bar down completely.

@bsbee:  If you havent chosen your venue yet..you might consider having a late morning early afternoon wedding where it would be appropriate to not serve alcahol at such an early time of the day…just a thought, it’s your wedding, you should have it how you want it….this way everyone will at least remember it the next day, lol.

We aren’t having alcohol either. We rarely drink and don’t want the people that do drink to ruin our day or someone else’s. Since when is alcohol mandatory at a wedding? We have told people that we don’t want the responsibility of our guests driving drunk afterward and our wedding memories would forever be tainted if someone had an accident after drinking at the wedding.

I’d stop answering people then. Just tell them you’re still figuring out the details. That should be a good enough reply considering your wedding is 1.5 years away still. Stick to your guns & do what you want. We’re having an open bar but I’m worried about my brother who is an alcholoic- even though he won’t admit it. I’d love to not have to worry about his actions the day of my wedding.
