Sober bride and groom divide opinion after serving only water at their wedding

Sober bride and groom divide opinion after serving only water at their wedding

People have told the couple they are being terrible hosts if they go ahead with the idea.

Weddings are a hell of a lot of fun.

The ceremony is emotional, the reception is fantastic and the party is raucous and boozy. Usually.

However, some couples decide on certain aspects of the day that might change this regular flow of entertainment

One bride and groom, who are sober 365 days of the year, didn't want to have alcohol served on their big day.

They are estimating as many as 150 guests will be there for them, however they don't think it's necessary to spend loads of money on booze.

On Reddit, the bride said: "Honestly, this doesn't have anything to do with there being kids there but due to the fact that my fiancé and I don't drink.

"Nothing against people who do, it's just not for us and we don't want to.

"On top of that, we only really drink water.

"We rarely, if ever, drink soda so most of the time it's only water with the occasional juice and milk. We don't even drink coffee.

"So obviously the food (which is a part my grandma is not paying for) is going to be expensive for that many people.

"We are having our wedding catered so everyone will have a good choice of food to choose from but to drink only water will be provided.

"We don't want to have to pay for alcohol or soda, it is just an large added expense when we can just do filtered water for a MUCH cheaper cost."

However, when she told her family, they were furious.

Some suggested she should just have an open bar so that people can pay for their own drinks, however she explained that she didn't want to have to pay for a bartender.

The bride asked the internet if she thought she was being unreasonable by only serving water at her nuptials.

One person said: "I know that technically you could be in the right, but here’s the thing about weddings, the marriage ceremony is for you and your fiancé. The wedding is for everyone you’ve invited, it’s an event you’re hosting, and not providing any drinks other than water makes you a bad host/hostess."

Another added: "OP is going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a wedding and all anyone will remember is that they were a total cheapskate who made everyone drink tap water as even coffee or tea was considered too luxurious an expense."

Others said they had been to plenty of dry weddings and there was, at the very least, a variety of non-alcohol beverages available.
