Kailyn Lowry didn’t need folks getting drunk at her wedding ceremony

In her 2014 ebook, Pride Over Pity, Lowry writes about her emotions concerning alcohol consumption and her large day.

“Even though everything had unfolded perfectly, I had worried there was a chance the night could go astray. during the planning and leading up to the ceremony I had one concern that I could not shake. Alcohol has a way of turning a celebration into a disaster. Javi’s family and some of our friends like to drink socially, so I felt obliged to provide a cocktail hour and fully stocked bar. This was a party after all and I knew that I shouldn’t generalize my experiences and apply them to every guest,” she wrote.

Lowry went as far as to try to persuade her bridesmaids to not drink. But she couldn’t get them to agree.

“Hoping for some non-slurring company, I had tried to get my bridesmaids to promise me they wouldn’t drink, but none of them really made any blood oaths to abstain,” she wrote.

However, Lowry was pleasantly stunned.

“Naturally I felt a little guarded, but to my complete surprise and relief not one single guest drank to the point where it upset me. I was able to enjoy dancing and speaking with the people who had chosen to drink. This was so important to me and I was genuinely pleased everyone held to my expectations,” she wrote.

What Kailyn Lowry discovered about consuming

Lowry writes that she really discovered rather a lot about herself and her relationship with alcohol that day.

“I had assumed all drunk people transform into monsters of destruction. The uncontrollable stupidity of those who can’t walk a straight line disgusts me, but more than that it frightens me. What I have finally come to realize is that alcoholics are the extreme. I have a negative association with drinking and it is an unhealthy and extremely general way to think about it,” she wrote.

Lowry continued: “I’ve changed though. I’ve learned. It’s okay to drink socially, in moderation, or to kick back and have a beer after a long day. It’s just about being responsible and not acting like a complete idiot. I was put in my place even more at my wedding, as a healthy middle ground was found by all. Out of all my wedding-related worries, I was shocked at how well this minor part had gone.”
