Everything You Need to Know about Alcohol-Free Weddings

Wedding etiquette is much more permissive these days – but even so, many brides are troubled by a variety of questions when it comes to planning this huge event in their lives. For instance, many of you may be asking yourselves about alcohol-free weddings, whether this is an acceptable option, and what are the things you should know about them.

We have the answers – so read on if you want to learn more about alcohol-free weddings.


  • Your reasons for having an alcohol-free wedding might be personal and pertain to your beliefs, your lifestyle, or simply the fact that you will be having a breakfast wedding. In this case, having an alcohol-free wedding is a really good option and you should definitely go for it – in the end, this is your wedding, and these are your rules and there are a ton of mocktails and refreshments you can actually serve during an alcohol-free wedding!
  • On the other hand, your reasons for having an alcohol-free wedding may be connected to your limited budget. Yes, you will surely save a lot of money by eliminating the alcohol (and maybe only serving a glass of bubbly for the toasts). However, you should consider some other money-saving options before you completely settle on this one. From serving just beer and wine to attentively calculating the amount of alcohol you will need, there are many ways to shrink your alcohol bill – consider them first!
  • If, however, you do settle on having an alcohol-free wedding, be sure your guests will know this from the very beginning. You can write this on the invitations (or on your wedding website), so that everyone knows what to expect of the Big Day.
