Hubby's family drinks A LOT all the time. My family knows when to stop and most aren't big drinkers as it is.
We are having my daughter's first birthday at our house and I want it to be alcohol free. My husband, on the other hand, thinks people should be allowed to drink.
I am willing to compromise and let people bring a little beer (only beer) but just drink a bottle or two, not get drunk. The problem is, I don't think I can trust some of hubby's family to control themselves. This is my daughter's first birthday and I don't want it to be ruined by a bunch of drunken people.
Also, most of my husband's family is driving an hour to get here and will have to drive home and I don't want to be responsible when they crash on the way home.
What would you do? Did/Will you have alcohol at your LO's first birthday?

Why do people need alcohol at a little kids birthday party? I think it's inappropriateat any kids birthday party. The day is about the child not the adults that are there. If you think his family won't control themselves then say no alcohol and if they don't want to listen tell them to leave. Your husband and your's and his family needs to respect what you feel if right for your child.
