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?

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.
