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?

Ya know, It would if I didnt know the person that well. If it were my close friend or close family then not at all. But then I know they would have it anyway lol. For me personally, It helps me relax and loosin up and then I have a great time, instead of me worrying about my dress or how I look dancing.

We had ours in a church, a condition of having it there (for free, BTW) was that we not bring in alcohol.

So, they can't bring ther own and keep it in the car?  I mean if you're going to be that bad as to not attend over it, why not bring your own?

Alcohol wouldn't be a deciding factor for me either way. I don't drink and neither does my husband. My dad was an alcoholic and so was his dad and his brother(they all 3 died from things related to their years of living off whisky). My egg donor is an alcoholic and so were both of her parents(my parents actually met in AA...go figure lol. Worked for my dad but not my egg donor). My siblings and I broke that mold. We don't drink and alcohol is never severed at our family functions. For us it's just not worth it. My hubby has never been a drinker. He lost a good friend in high to a drunk driving accident and since drinking has never really appealed to him. 

We got married at the JP and had a party a few days later. There was no alcohol and we all had a great time. There was no alcohol at my son's wedding either. But I wouldn't not go to a wedding just because they were serving alcohol either.

I think it would be really immature to not to go to a wedding because there won't be alcohol. If you need alcohol to have a good time, you might have a problem.

It would be annoying, but I would bring my own.

Why would it matter? Weddings are about celebrating the couple getting married, not for getting plastered.  BTW, if you have to have alcohol to "have fun" at any event, you may have a problem....

I don't drink so it wouldn't matter to me.

I would attend a dry wedding but I probably wouldn't be there for long honestly.

You really can't go without alcohol for a couple hours? I've never gone to a wedding with more than a champagne toast and they are always nice. No drunk shit heads running around.
