There was a discussion in another post of mine regarding alcohol at wedding receptions so I thought I'd start a new post and gets y'all's opinion.

Would you base your decision to attend a wedding/reception based solely on if there will be alcohol or not?

To me no alcohol is better than a cash bar.

Nope. I don't drink and I go to celebrate the marriage. I'd prefer not to spend my evening around a bunch of drunkards.

Absolutely not!! I didn't have any at my reception (it was a daytime reception) but I think it should be up to the bride and groom. Not all wedding receptions need or are even appropriate to have alcohol IMO. The only big no no, IMO, is cash bars, if you can't afford to provide alcohol, don't have it, don't ask you guests to pay for it. Also, if someone doesn't go to a wedding based on the presence or lack there of of alcohol, they clearly don't care about the bride and/or groom that much.

How about the option of NOT GOING IF ALCOHOL IS SERVED!?  

If alcohol is served, I would refuse to go to the wedding.

It seems odd to me but to each their own.

I'd be more willing to go. =o. We had a dry wedding. We're both nondrinkers. We had sparking juice for the toast.

I wouldn't not go if there wasn't any, but i would be slightly annoyed. I should be allowed to at least purchase a drink. I don't bring my son to weddings. It's a night out for me. If I am spending $300 on a gift. I should be able to have a drink of my choice.
