When we posted a recent lunchtime poll on open vs cash bars vs booze-free weddings, little did we know how shaken, stirred and generally muddled-up our readers would be on the subject.
Over 37,000 votes and 330 comments later, a tippling majority toppled the teetotalers, demanding a reasonable level of libation. Most maintain that if guests are going to the time and expense of attending nuptials, the least the happy couple can do is make sure they don't have to peck their way through the Chicken Dance stone cold sober.
