My sister (maid of honor) is helping me plan the reception part of the wedding. I have a few specifics that I need to include, but for the most part, I'm letting her play with ideas. One thing that's a must: our reception must be dry. No alcohol. Not even champagne. My partner's father is a recovering alcoholic, and we want him to be comfortable. I also would like to spare everyone the embarassment of what happens when there is alcohol available at my family's gatherings. When I shared this with my sister, she came uncorked (no pun intended). She said that our reception was going to be a complete and total drag, no one is going to want to stay, and unless someone spiked the punch, it was going to be the worst reception in the history of weddings. Obviously she's exaggerating a big. However, does she have a point? Should we have alcohol at our reception? It's expensive- the reception site demands more fees and liability insurance when there's alcohol, and alcohol itself is very spendy where we live. Thoughts?
