    1. This thread is awesome.

    2. I fully intend on having a mimosa or two on my wedding day.  I’d like to get married in the late afternoon/early evening, so I don’t think a couple mimosas or some champagne while getting ready would be so bad.  Although I dabble pretty frequently, I will definitely not be doing that before or during the wedding.  I just get far too paranoid if I have to talk to lots of people or be in public.  Now, at a smaller, private afterparty, or alone with my FH, that’s a different story.

    3. Off to find the dabbling thread.  🙂

    Almost everyone in our wedding party had a drink while we waited for guests to arrive. 

    This was mostly for a joke photograph, but we gave bottles of Crown to the groomsmen – about an hour and half ahead of this ceremony, I took a pull with a Diet Coke chaser!  Clearly I didn’t find this ‘taboo!’  It’s one of my favorite candid photos.

    @UpstateCait: How could I not! The guys had all snuck down to someone’s car and taken a Jagerbomb (wtf?!) and I made them bring me a bottle since they were having a ‘party’

    @christalynn11: ABSOLUTELY! Why can they have fun but you cant? While I’m not much for the hard liquor, I’ve already told me girls to be prepared to down a few bottles of champagne!

    **Side note: I can drink a whole bottle myself and just barely feel tipsy so I promise I’m not planning on getting tanked before the ceremony. 

    @njm1313: You best believe I’ll be posing for one of those candids!

    @njm1313: My photographer was a friendor – she has known me for more than ten years and was very good about taking less than typical candids.  I’m very happy with how things turned out!  Especially considering she isn’t even a pro!

    We intended to, but while hubby and I were out for pics, the church lady found the cooler full of booze in the bridal room.  Apparently she flipped out, showed my mom the contract that said no alcohol in church and made my dad take it all off the church property.  Then she went to check the guys room in a big huff…and came back and said they were clean.  I didn’t know this happened until I came back and our champagne was gone.  Asked hubby about it the next day and he said “of course we were drinking, we were smart enough to leave it in the car!”  LOL

    I’d go for it…it made me feel like I was in high school getting liquor taken away (and it happened again at the reception…weren’t supposed to bring in our own liquor and the champagne showed up again).  But it was kind of nice to feel young!  Ha!
