I dont expect it, but I always assume people will be drinking.
I never assume or expect it will be supplied though. I dont drink anyway so its never an issue for me, and if DP feels like drinking he will always pick up something on the way.

No it's not expected. With our group of friends we all like a drink and we all have alcohol at our houses so if we have a BBQ we could have a drink if we want to but we hardly do if it's just a BBQ. We normally plan if we are going to be drinking

My partner has been to dry weddings as his extended family (cousins) are 7th day adventists. I assume most dry weddings are for religious reasons?

Yes, I guess I do for a bbq or dinner. Though if there's not any I don't really think it odd. I have fortnightly dinners with my close girlfriends and there's almost never alcohol as they're on Wednesday nights and everyone's driving. We always have a few bottles of wine in the house so when it's my turn i'll always offer but usually no-one drinks except me and one girl who lives down the road. Most of the time for dinner parties we will BYO. We had champagne for DS's 1st b'day as it was just us and the grandparents and uncles.

No. Most of our friends don't drink either.

Which is weird, because it's not like I come from non-drinking parents. My parents probably had beer or wine if they were at a social gathering... but I just don't. I wouldn't have booze waiting for my guests if they came over here, and I wouldn't even think of being served alcohol if I went to someone else's either (unless it was a cocktail party or something, where the whole idea is to drink... lol).
I find dry weddings odd though. Not so much that the bride/groom don't pay, but more than there's just not alcohol at all. I guess I like the idea that if you're at a venue, at night, you can choose to have a glass if you so desire... but at someone's house, I just don't expect it at all.
It it was still daylight hours, I'd actually feel weird if I was offered a drink.

DH family's side never never never alcohol!
My Mum and me like a nice wine on a special occasion get together but other then that I don't care.
Most "do's" with friends has alcohol but me and DH rarely drink anyway.
