As I'm planning my wedding, I've realized that planning the reception is going to be a major obstacle. My family has always been opposed to drinking, for religious reasons. I've slightly rebelled and drink occasionally (without my family knowing) and enjoy it, and my fiance drinks as well. His family is Irish, so unsurprisingly they are drinkers too. I just don't know how to plan the reception while not offending anyone, or making anyone unhappy/uncomfortable. I've thought of possibly having dinner with my side of the family after the wedding, then having dessert/drinks with fiance's family? I just dont want everything to be so separated, all because of alcohol. If anyone has advice on coming up with a good compromise I would really appreciate it!!
