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?

Nope. Sometimes alcohol is a bad idea.

We don't give gifts here, we give cash.

Quoting Roxygurl:

You're the only one so far that has brought up the price of gifts so ill address your response.



We are having a simple low key reception and IF we do a registry it will be for fairly cheap things, as in most will be 25 bucks or under. We live together and have almost everything we need. He wants a rice cooker and I want a stand mixer and the rest are small things we could use like a decent can opener and a better colander and spatulas and such. Nothing terribly expensive.




Quoting Jennyanne322:

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.

My aunt didnt have alcohol at hers bc her dad is a recovering alcoholic and no one had an issue. So no I don't think it's a big deal if there's no alcohol.

 as an alcohol free family, if there was alcohol, i would have to let who's ever wedding it was know of my intolerance's and make sure i wasn't going to get sick from any foods cooked with wine or champagne, and also know for the toast, i could have something like apple juice or a soda.

I'll be honest. I hate weddings. I go for the booze.

That is not the deciding factor of whether or not I attend, but I will say that every 'dry' wedding I've been to is over by 9pm. Nothing wrong with that, it is what it is. Just sayin' :)

Honestly I don't really care. I really don't drink so I wouldn't care if there was none.

I didn't vote. I would go, but I would be annoyed unless it was a small, budget wedding, maybe midday, you know? But an evening party reception with dancing, etc. should have drinks, even if it's beer and wine and/or cash bar.

Yes, if I knew you were serving alcohol at your reception, I would not attend.
