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?

If you have a cash bar we won't go, if we did go we'll take the alcohol money out of your gift. Dry wedding we would leave after we ate.

As a person who has been sober while many weren't, there are a lot of drunk jerks out there. I had people who didn't care at the time that I was underage and later on, people that didn't care I was married. I can see why people wouldn't want alcohol at a wedding. Not like some people aren't jerks sober but alcohol sure can bring out the worst in people.

I'm the one who started the convo with the OP in the other thread.  Here's my take.

If I'm shelling out $300 bucks for a gift, I want the option to have a glass of wine.  No one is forcing the non-drinkers to imbibe, but limiting those who want to is rude.

Juice toasts seem juvenile and low-class.  

Last, good hosts provide for their guests.  Weddings are celebratory events.  Most people like to drink (I'm not saying sloppily inebriated) while celebrating.

 You don't need alcohol to have a good time and if you do, then you have a problem.


Who said you did?
