Drinking at your wedding
just thought I'd throw this out there in the hope some brides who have married can offer some thoughts on this and to see whether others have thought about this...
Nowadays I'm really not a big drinker - and have really gone off certain types of alcohol. Wine gives me a bit of a bad head (I'm not great at hydrating enough so that's probably why) and if I do drink a fair bit the hangovers are just utterly utterly horrendous! I can't hack it these days! I love a prosecco but seem to get tipsy from a few. I therefore would say that whilst I enjoy a couple of drinks with a meal for example, I've gone off sort of general night out drinking- mostly cos I'm now crap at it!! So at all my recent work networking stuff I've been pretty good at just having a few in case I started banging on about nonsense in a pissed state (like my boss, who has told me the same story at each of these events about 5000 times.)
So I was planning on not drinking too much during the day at the wedding. For getting ready I'll have some prosecco in but think I'm going to take some of that Bottle green sparkling elderflower and have that instead. I'm also going to ask for something similar to be available at the reception drinks as well as all the booze so I can keep hydrated but feel like I've a glass of fizz in hand. Then with dinner I'll have some prosecco (but stay clear of the bad head wine) and after dinner I probably will just do whatever as Mr H will probably decide we should all drink White Russians!! I'll just have to take it steady.
I am also reminded of a girl I knew who was so good at dieting and exercising and being really healthy up to her wedding that she really couldn't handle her booze by then, got too drunk too quickly by not realising this and had to be put to bed at 9pm missing most of her party poor love!!
Any drunken bride horror stories or sneaky tips? I'm conscious people might buy lots of drinks for the bride and groom too (I always do this lol)!
