I don't understand why a dry wedding would be considered being rude under any circumstance. You should not worry about explaining it or warning ahead. If alcohol is more important to them then your wedding then it sounds like a personal problem to me. By the way I do drink and have attended both types. I wouldn't base my decision to come on what they were serving or not serving.
I was very interested to read the answers to this post, since my venue does not allow alcohol due to it being a city-owned building. We are planning a Friday night wedding, which apparently is not ok since there won't be alcohol?
You don't need to explain your reasons to your guests, so it doesn't really matter why, and it is in no way rude.People who can't have fun/enjoy themselves without booze are kinda pathetic to me, personally. Especially at something like a wedding where there are tons of people to talk to, lots of pictures to take, things to read, a dance floor... if people can't enjoy conversation / dancing without booze that's their problem, not yours. Not to mention that, if someone can't enjoy my company/conversation without alcohol, that doesn't say much for our friendship. Granted, you won't be completely immersed in conversation/interactions with every single person the whole time, but i'm sure they can still find ways to enjoy themselves. and if they're sitting around whining about how there's no alcohol, then they're the ones ruining it for themselves, since they COULD be finding ways to have fun instead of being negative nellies, so yeah.
