    Yep but I always BYO so don't expect it to be provided for me. Don't while I am pregnant though of course!

    No i don't. I rarely drink so I wouldn't need to BYO anyway as I wouldn't drink. However if its dh/ Definitely anything social (even with himself calls for a drink)

    No not usually. If it was for something special - baby shower, hens, big b'day we would provide it, but generally have a byo policy

    This.

    We don't serve alcohol at dinner parties and our friends are all pretty aware of that.

    Most weddings I attend have no alcohol supplied, often not allowed.

    I've never been to a lunch/tea with alcohol served at someones house.

    Yes, but that is just how it is with my friends.

    I think the only time I expect it to be supplied is a wedding though.

    I never expect it, though the norm between our friends is usually to bring whatever you'd like to drink - be it alcohol or soft drink. It is then shared between the group. Depending on the occasion sometimes the host will say bring nothing, but usually it's "just bring whatever you'd like to drink". Family dinners at my mums, alcohol is always provided. I'm not a big drinker even when I'm not utd.

    Dh wanted to offer a small amount beer & champas at ds' 1st birthday because it's a celebration, but for me a celebration doesn't need to involve alcohol - especially a kids party !!!

    i was trying to think of a way to word how i feel. this one did the hard work for me!
    it's certainly not a given for me, unless the gathering is actually held at a pub or wherever. i certainly don't go out of my way to provide if i'm organising, which is rare.
