Drinking at your wedding
Are you drinking on your wedding day? If so, how much and do you plan on stopping?
FI and I have discussed this at length. I want us to remember every moment that we can, so I have laid down a rule for the day. We can only have 2 drinks max. We don't drink liquor as it is, so thankfully that isn't an issue. If he wishes to get drunk, he can on any other day or during the HM...but for our wedding, he will be mainly sober. We are paying wayyy too much $$ for all of our pictures to be of a wasted bride/groom.
I went to a wedding a few years ago where the bride and groom were absolutely hammered. They drank all morning/afternoon/evening, so much so that by the time they reached the reception they were puking all over the place. They never even made it to the cake cutting and the first dance ended up being a first sway. They just held onto each other and their drinks and stood in place awkwardly for a few minutes. They had to be escorted back to their hotel by family members. I saw how irate all of the guests were and the rest of the family was horrified by their actions.
