(Closed) Would you still drink at a dry wedding? Religion and judgemental view on alcohol

posted 10 years ago in Etiquette
  • poll: Would you still drink or bring alcohol to a dry wedding?

    Yes! I do not want someone pushing the beliefs or their budget on my personal choices.

    If there was a bar or store nearby, I would buy a bottle of wine and bring into the reception.

    I would use the venue bar during the reception and grab a drink.

    Maybe, if someone had alcohol at the reception to share, I would drink.

    No! It is best to respect the host couple's wishes for a dry wedding and not drink at all.

    @Miss Tattoo: I’m sorry… I do think it’s a really big deal when someone uses their wedding as a way to get people to do what she wants…. That’s being over controlling and the bride needs to check herself. I think that this is not the only area in which she has over stepped her boundaries.. I’m sure during the whole planning has been Hell and that the party deserves to have a stiff drink after the ceremony.

    @twobecomeone‘s comments and not the OP.

    I love alcohol especially wine, i love how I feel after a few wines, I feel happy and it helps me have fun, just because some people are wankas and act up on alcohol, doesn’t make alcohol bad, alcohol isn’t the problem people make their own silly choices.

    @ mizzrose, I think that’s going a bit far.  She’s been somewhat accomodating, as the OP said.  The OP posted an update.  Originally, she didn’t want anyone to drink for the entire weekend.  She ammended that to sun up to sun down on the wedding day, which seems to coincide with what a Muslim officiant would require.  I’m assuming, here, which the OP can correct, that the wedding and reception will be over by sundown, in which case, the wedding party can all drink to their hearts’ content after sundown.

    You said:  But she has gone as far as to ban drinking from sun up to sun down on her wedding day.

    And: ETA3. To answer a question: Originally the bride wanted everyone in the bridal party to not drink all weekend. 

     

    Edited because part of my post got eaten.  I’d gone on to add that to me, this makes it sound like she’d originally wanted no one to drink all weekend and had amended it to from sun up to sun down on her wedding day.  I don’t understand, still, why it is such a big deal that you would go to the lengths of having a bunch of alcohol on hand afterwards.  It sounds like you resent it so much that you feel you need to do this just to get back at her. So why even still be friends with her?  This is just my opinion, but it doesn’t sound like you love her all that much.  My original opinion still stands.  People don’t just develop a dislike of that intensity for no apparent reason other than that they don’t like the taste.  Something has inspired that opinion.
