Weddings are a perfect time to toast to a beautiful future with the one you love. However, the planning process isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. There are so many decisions to make!
One of the most infamous wedding debates is whether to have an open or cash bar, but what if you’d prefer your wedding to be alcohol free? You’re not a party pooper at all! There are so many advantages to a dry wedding. Here are ways you can celebrate your wedding alcohol free!
Why have a dry wedding?
If you’re still on the fence about whether or not to have an alcohol-free wedding, here’s a whole list of reasons why you should!
You want your sober friends to be able to enjoy your special day, instead of feeling pressured to drink.
Hosting an open bar can be expensive, because alcohol and appropriate staffing/licensing is pricey! A dry wedding will save you significant money.
Everyone has that friend or family member that drinks a little too much at weddings, which takes the focus off of what the day’s really about.
Okay, but in all seriousness, weddings can be stressful for women who aren’t ready to announce that they’re pregnant, because they’re in their first trimester. Making the day alcohol-free reduces that stress on any moms-to-be.
Having a wedding sans alcohol doesn’t mean that your drinks won’t be exciting. There are many strong non-alcoholic options, like mocktails, that will still make your day feel like a special occasion.
Ways to Celebrate!
The best way to celebrate your wedding alcohol-free is to have drinks so incredible that your guests don’t even notice they’re not drinking alcohol! You can accomplish this by having some killer mocktail options.
Something borrowed, something blue
If you’re wanting a lower alcohol option, consider serving up an alcohol-free version of a popular drink. How about an alcohol free Margarita packed with fruit juices for that sour tang.
Timeless and classyOnce you’ve found your signature mocktail, make sure you stock up on non-alcoholic beer and wine. Much like mocktails, non-alcoholic beer is trendy right now, because you get the taste and craft of beer without the commitment to calories. Your wedding is your day, so if being sober curious is going to make you and your spouse the happiest, go for it! Congratulations on your big day!
