    If I attended a dinner party and it wasn't provided, I'd think it was a bit weird tbh. But that's just me and my friends!

    I don't always expect it but would probably notice it missing from a gathering of adults, particularly during an evening event.

    TBH I probably wouldn't notice. I don't usually have a drink unless it's planned and then I usually take some with me. I don't really expect people to supply it. Unless it was a wedding- id be surprised if it wasn't supplied unless it was stated in advance it was alcohol free (which is fair enough IMO).

    No I don't expect alcohol. I would supply alcohol events I was hosting e.g. a dinner party, or tell people to BYO, but I don't expect alcohol. And that was before I was pregnant and breastfeeding.

    TBH the only time I think alcohol will be there is if it's at a pub or if BYO is on the invitation.
    I said yes - but well i don't drink so it doesn't really make much a difference I spose

    I just find it odd that you would go somewhere and not be offered a drink/or have ppl over and not offer them a drink.

    we are the house that gives the workmen, the neighbour or just about anyone who pops in for 5min a beer.

    I have fruit punch and will sometimes buy a bottle of something for people to add it to their own but not always.

    I've also attended 3 weddings where there was no alcohol served.

    No, I don't expect it.

    DP on the other hand, wouldn't count it as a get together if there weren't alcohol

    I'm actually quite concerned about the number of people who drink at birthday parties and am kinda glad that dd doesn't attend parties. I had my head in the sand about alcohol expectations :/
