    Best to steer clear of alcohol to be honest. You won't like how you feel the next morning if you indulge.

    I'd go with gin and tonic (yuk) or vodka and diet coke, they have the least calories

    It's not about the calorie content of the drinks.

    If you're in ketosis or just borderline, the alcohol is the danger, and I do mean danger. Your body won't process alcohol the way it normally would. You could end up in hospital after a few drinks. At best, you'll have a stinker of a hangover and put yourself out of ketosis.

    Hmm, an unfortunate time for you to have started the diet perhaps, but, there again, there's always something and so it's really a decision to take before starting. Shame!

    I've got drunk on Dukan - you will feel awful, but.... as it's a close friend's wedding that is more important so - stick to the least sugary things possible - no wine at all, limit the champagne and drink slimline tonic with gin, or diet coke and vodka. And really really try not to have too much.

    I would almost recommend a tiny amount of quality carb (ie, not a dessert, maybe brown bread) otherwise you will feel dreadful, and risk being the 'drunk girl at a wedding'

    Then the next day, no carbs, up the water, be strict with the rules and do not weigh yourself for 2/3 days.

    You'll be fine :)

    Are you worried about joining in or 'fitting in' so you don't have to explain about the diet? you could always stick to slimine tonic - NO GIN or Diet coke NO Vodka. Looks the same but no awful after-effects....
