Will you guys be drinking at your reception? My family keeps telling me I shouldn’t at all. Which is upsetting, I want to have fun! I’m not trying to get sloppy drunk, will you guys be opting out of drinking?

    I drank at my reception! It was a celebration of our marriage, so we celebrated! I did not get sloppy drunk, but I did enjoy the open by we paid for.

    I drank at our reception. Maybe it was the adrenaline, but I didn’t get anywhere near buzzed. I still had a great time though.

    I'll be drinking. I may be drinking before the ceremony. I wont be fall down drunk, but to assume I'll have 15ish glasses of wine in an 11 hour period is probably fair.

    We'll definitely be partaking in the booze.

    I feel like I won't be drunk. But I'll have some liquid courage.

    Exactly, liquid courage. To be honest I have issues dealing with deep rooted insecurities about my body image. I overthink if I try to dance on any dance floor sober. Alcohol on board when dancing keeps those thoughts away! I almost never drink

    We both did. We were talking so much and doing so much, we probably couldn't get drunk if we tried because you're so busy taking pictures, dancing, eating, talking, etc. But we both had several drinks for sure, especially towards the end of the night.

    I’ll probably have some wine, but I don’t think I’ll drink a lot of any liquids because I don’t want to go to the bathroom 10 times after I put my dress on. Honestly, drink enough to not worry about who’s telling you not to drink! (But also, don’t drink so much that you feel icky the next day, drink water too)

    I don’t think that’s their decision. I had one glass and would have had more if I wasn’t so busy.

    I will most definitely be drinking at my reception. FH and I both agreed to not drink before though. It’s important we both are stone sober & clear minded when we take our vows. But our I do’s, it’s celebration time!

    Agreed with PPs--I'm going to be drinking intermittently throughout the day (as I'm sure my bridal party and guests will be doing, too). Fiancé and I also have crazy high tolerances and know our limits very well, so we don't forsee any falling-down-drunk scenarios.

    We're having a dry wedding but I still think that you are welcome to drink at your own wedding. Duuude go for it! I've read a few funny articles about making sure you don't get completely wasted (which kind of feel like a no duh), but this is your wedding and you should partake in what you're paying for.

    Im sticking to champaign and wine on my big day. Be sure to alternate between adult beverages and water! Taking a flight for honeymoon would be a nightmare hungover.
