Annie Grace, author of This Naked Mind comments on the difficulties of attending a wedding without drinking alcohol.
I filmed this video while at my first alcohol free wedding. As with any first I experienced a few nerves that I didn't really expect since it had been so long.
The hardest part of attending my first alcohol free wedding was the new experience. New people to tell that I have made this choice in my life, the nerves and frustrations.
It was hard to get through my first alcohol free wedding without drinking. It was intense and hard at points not to be a part of things At one point for the cheers I actually drank an alcohol free beer just to feel like I fit in.
Once I got past my own misgivings about being at an alcohol free wedding celebration, I was out there and having fun and people knew I wasn't drinking. The biggest thing I learned was that my expectations for the alcohol free wedding were different than those around me. I was able to enjoy myself because I didn't need or expect there to be alcohol but the others wouldn't have felt the same because experience tells them they need alcohol to have fun.
