Couple Got Roasted for Serving Only Water as Beverage at Their ‘Dry Wedding’ | “A Water Wedding Is Just Bizarre”
A soon-to-be bride decided to share her wedding plans with the curious and judgmental masses on Reddit. Her announcement? Brace yourselves, folks. She intended to serve only water at the grand celebration of her union. Yes, you read that right. Water. H2O. Aqua Pura. And as expected, this peculiar choice caused quite an uproar in the virtual realm. Now, before we dive headfirst into this watery tale, let's get one thing straight. The couple in question, you see, don't partake in the art of drinking alcoholic beverages. They are sober souls who find their joy in other elixirs of life. Fair enough.
But here's where it gets interesting. They decided that not only would they abstain from booze but their entire guest list would be subjected to the same fate. A dry wedding, my friends. Not a drop of alcohol in sight. The bride-to-be looked for validation in the Reddit post, "AITA for having a dry wedding and serving only water for drinks?" "We have a lot of kids in our family so we decided against making it child-free but we did decide to make it dry. So there will be no alcohol of any kind at our wedding," the bride cites her reason. But this is not where they stopped, the couple also decided on no other beverages. Little did she know the storm she was about to unleash.
The internet, being the delightful place that it is, didn't hold back. The comments poured in like a torrential downpour of wit and sarcasm. People couldn't fathom the audacity of serving only water at a celebration of such magnitude. "Yes, dear bride, you are indeed the Ahole in this peculiar scenario," wrote @Sea_Rise_1907 and their comment echoed everyone's sentiments. One respondent u/econdonetired playfully remarked, "No one is arguing with a dry wedding lots of people shouldn’t be around alcohol. But if you don’t tell me it is water only I’m leaving the reception and grabbing a 12 pack of Diet Pepsi and plopping it down on my table." "Lol. Toasting with water is bad luck too. I do appreciate water, I know it's not available everywhere. But a water wedding is just bizarre. Am I being too judgemental?" commented u/FrogMintTea.
The bride, bewildered by the commotion her post had caused, tried to rationalize her decision. "It's just water," she pleaded. "Don't most people drink water every day anyway? Should we pay extra to have soda and appease the masses?" Alas, her pleas fell on deaf ears. While the intentions of this soon-to-be-wed couple may have been pure, the execution left much to be desired. A wedding is a celebration, a time for indulgence, laughter and raising a toast to love and happiness. Depriving guests of the customary libations seemed like a grave offense in the eyes of the Reddit jury.
