While Chris and I were working on our reception manu, we lamented the fact that wine costs so much per bottle. We briefly thought about having a dry wedding since neither Chris and I are big drinkers. My family isn't either (My brother is a tea tottler). And with the exception of one or two friends, none of my friends are huge drinkers either.
But I know that other people enjoy a glass of wine with dinner especially since we'll be at a steakhouse. So we decided to limit how many glasses people could have by only buying a certain number of wine bottles. They'll have to ask us at the reception if we want to order more.
As a joke, Chris has been asking people if they've received their wine vouchers with their wedding invitations. When he did that with his dad, the man was not happy. You could see his face become stern as he was about to start a lecture about you can't do that.
"That's pitiful," he said. "We can't allow that."
When we told him we were joking, he gave a small chuckle. But I think he was still worried that we'd do something so ridiculous.
When we did the same thing to his mom, she was incredulous too and was relieved when we told her it was a joke. Katie joined us not long after we told his mother and she asked Katie if she received her drink vouchers. Katie looked quite serious and said that she hadn't.
"Yeah, if you have friends who don't drink, you could take theirs," I said.
But I think she's much more wily than the parents and just laughed. Now, the question is, did you guys get any drink vouchers?
