I would think no dinner, no alcohol, just wedding cake/other desserts (maybe) and non-alcoholic drinks, coffee, tea, etc. I would also think “eat something pre-ceremony so you don’t get a bellyache from sugar overload.”

P.S. I would also secretly hope for, but not expect, a glass of something bubbly.

Btw, there are many punches that are not red. The last several weddings I went to had yummy “clear” punch using pineapple juice or 7up instead of Hawaiian punch. But I agree with pp that wearing the same color as the food or beverages so you don’t spill is going a little overboard and impossible to do since you have no idea what is being served.

I’ve been to a few punch and cake wedding in the South and they are lovely.  And the only food was cake served with the punch and coffee and tea.
