HI, Our first son is going to marry his fiance this OctOBer. Unfortunately they are both unsaved and while being a "good boy" he lives a pretty secular lifestyle. My wife and I are not even sure if they are going to allow our pastor to marry them yet as the wedding is at a hotel along with the reception and rehearsal dinner. Our beliefs are known by them and we are paying for the rehearsal dinner with NO money towards alcohol. I have read that it is customary to "toast" at these rehearsals and of course the wedding reception too. Is this acceptable in God's eyes if we are drinking water? At previous weddings we have just skipped this. But would that be considered rude and cause hurt feelings? also they are having alcohol and a DJ at the reception. We want no part of either but feel confused about things like the Mother/Son dance and the like. I feel like I know what I should do but am unsure how to preserve hurt feelings or appearing rude? Thanks- Jebarr
