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.

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.

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 :/
