So I’m having a dry bar(I know bummer) for my wedding reception. I overheard a couple of my in laws thinking of ideas to sneak alcohol to our wedding reception. (FYI: Wedding reception is on the cruise ship). What can I do or look for to make sure no one sneaks alcohol in the boat. Some people are attending the cruise after and some are going home.
I’ve never been to a dry wedding because everyone I know hosts an open bar but I know people who would do that if they were invited to an event with no alcohol. I suggest offering a limited bar or consumption bar. It’s not right to not offer alcohol to adults who choose to drink.
It's your party. If they become intoxicated, have someone escort them out. If alcohol is more important than your special day, I would seriously consider "un-inviting them". I am not having a bar at all.
Re: Rowdy family. At least if it's hosted and controlled by licensed bartenders they will shut people off if they get "rowdy." (And seriously, what are they, 12?) If they bring their own they will have no control.
FFS If I came I would bring my own too, ESPECIALLY if I'm going to be trapped on a boat and can't leave when I get bored. Which wouldn't take long, if there is no drinks.
