    Yes, why not? I’m there because I love you and want to support you in this special day, not drink.

    I would absolutely attend. The entire purpose is to celebrate a union between husband and wife. Alcohol makes no difference.


    Although, as a young friend.. I would like a heads up to sneak a few minis in with me 😉

    I don’t drink either so I probably wouldn’t even notice.

    I’d go for sure.  But I would assume it would end a little earlier than most weddings.

    I would definitely still go!  Who says you need alcohol to have fun!?  I’d probably expect that the reception wouldn’t go as late as some, but I’d still expect everyone to show up.

    I would definitely go, but I would not be happy about it if the lack of booze was a suprise lol

    Of course I would still attend.  People should be going to your wedding to celebrate your love and union, NOT to get drunk! If someone simply would not go to your wedding just because there will be no alcohol, then they don’t deserve to be there anyway and are not your true friends.

    I would and have. We’re not having alcohol at our wedding mostly because we cannot afford it. But I truly understand, and, for me at least, alcohol is not the reason I attend a wedding. 🙂

    Of course I would go. I might be disappointed for a minute, because I like a glass of wine or two on special occastions, but I wouldn’t be upset about it.

    Were having an alcohol free reception as well. I know a few people will smuggle in flasks but whatever. I wont be purchasing a permit or serving them the alcohol so I dont need to feel guilty if something happens.

    @frommisstomrs.:  I would go, but may not stay as long. I completely respect your choice and reason for not having alcohol, its just that most guests hang out at the reception, have a few drinks and mingle. Its just been my experience that dry weddings tend to clear out earlier.

    If you and your fiance both do not drink I’m sure the thought has crossed your friend’s minds that the wedding may be dry.  I would be fine with this but it is all about expectations,  I might be good to word of mouth let people know it is a dry wedding.  A good friend will understand esp with the family histories.
