AITA for not allowing alcohol at my wedding & not telling people why?

I think your the AH here. Not for having a dry wedding. But I think not telling people before hand. Whether or not you agree with it or not, people will expect alcohol (especially if it’s at a venue which typically serves), and would plan accordingly, and that could have a financial impact. Someone may Uber/Lyft/use a car service, people may book accommodations. It could impact child care (whether you have a child stay with family overnight or just hire a baby sitter). Maybe you have to kennel/pay a dog sitter. All these expenses add up.

For me, if I get invited to a wedding 45 minutes away, I’d probably book someone to stay the night so I don’t drive. If I spend money
