This questions always seems to surround showers, bridal or baby. Is it ok to drink? The answer...not a clear one! I guess it would all depend on the guests attending the shower. It pays to be respectful, but it also pays to have a good time!
Then again, I have been to many bridal showers that have a nice amount of drinks and the tone is correctly set. It is done in a way that is classy. It is clearly stated in the way the alcohol is presented that it is not a "who can get drunk first" and "who wants to play beer pong?" type of shower.
To do this, just serve wine and or a themed cocktail. That's it. No open bar or ice chest full of beer. There is nothing more embarrassing (or unladylike) than to have a bride and all her bridesmaids be smashed at her shower (not to mention it gives people a lot to talk about).
Keep it nice for those attending. Save the "party" for your Bachlorette shin-dig. Relax with those who are showering you with presents and wishing you well on your new journey!
Have a different opinion, let us know!
