Alcohol will be our biggest hurdle no doubt. Growing up I didn't know dry weddings even existed until one unfortunate wedding I attended in college. I come from a Big Catholic family, all stereotypes included. If we have alcohol it will be an open bar. It's in our budget and our favorite kind of wedding to attend. Here's the wrench. His parents think we don't drink. (He would not have lived to the day I met him if his parents knew). All the posts say this is your wedding do what you want. But I also don't want to start a marriage with a kiss of death from his parents.
