I'm not having alcohol at my wedding... I dont want my day trashed by a bunch of people acting dumb and throwing up all over the place...
Plus my Grandma is really religious and it would make her feel really uncompy.
And the beach house they almost would not rent to us with a "party" because it has a pool under a balcony.
So is it really that bad to go to a wedding with out alcohol

I am trusting my friends and family will not get drunk and throw up, etc - I hope people are a little more mature than that, but you need to do whatever is right for you, your family and the group of people you are having.
If you want to include something, maybe just have a cocktail hour and then no alcohol during dinner or just wine or something like that. There is a balance between a drunken party and serving wine with dinner. But I think it's fine if you don't have any alcohol if that's what you're more comfortable with.. I think most people will have a good time regardless..

If you have concerns about booze, I would have the bar closed after a certain point, but I do think people will find it odd (unless everyone coming is of the same religious persusasion).

I just don't like to see people skip a bar for budgetary reasons only, especially if you know your guests are people who imbibe or you and your FI drink socially.
When people are concerned with budget they can offer just beer & wine, wine with dinner, a champagne toast, a signature cocktail, etc. I personally feel that cash bars at weddings are just as bad as no alcohol.
I blame a lot of issues on drunken guests on the person serving the drinks. Either the bartender isn't trained well enough to know how to handle intoxicated guests or the hosts didn't spend the extra to hire a professional server.
