Receptions are different here than they are in England, and I know my BF's family will see a lot that they're not used to. They're a bit more lavish here and open bars flow easily. What I am worried about is my friends. I have a great circle of friends but they tend to let loose at receptions when there are drinks flowing. I do not want to offend or annoy my conservative guests, but I cannot really control what my non-Indian guests do. How can I express to them nicely that as much as I love them and have fun with them, I want to make sure nothing is out of turn and no one has too much. Sometimes dancing can get a little close and it's not really what my grandparents or family are used to. Does anyone have this problem with their fun loving friends who mean no harm?
What's a good way to express this to them without sounding like an overbearing B?
