My Fiance and I don't drink. It isn't for religious reasons, we aren't straight edge, we aren't a part of some strange cult. We're just late 20's and don't drink.
Our caterer doesn't even have a license to sell alcohol so having a closed bar is out of the question. They can serve if we buy beer or wine from BevMo (does that sound a little trashy?).
I don't feel like having to find a bartender with the license or shelling out a couple g's to pay for everyone to get drunk but I don't want to be a tacky kill-joy either. In a perfect world I wouldn't have alcohol at the wedding and everyone would be ok and happy with it. Do we live in a perfect world?
I also have the belief that a lot of more distant relatives go to weddings for the open bar. How do I forewarn guests of the alcohol situation?
You could just write "NO BOOZE WILL BE SERVED AT THIS WEDDING" in big red letters on the invite, and then you'll save a ton of money because nobody will come!
