We’ll be having a buffet dinner with free soda throughout the night, and some free beer… we’ll either be having a 2 half barrel cutoff, and after that everyone has to pay for beer, or maybe a time cutoff, such as 8:30 or 9pm for free beer. All other alcohol (with the possible exception of a glass of wine at dinner) will be cash bar.
So here’s the question… how do we word this on our invitations? My mom thinks we don’t need to mention it at all but I feel like we should, since it’s only free beer for a bit and not unlimited.
ETA: I know that many of FI’s relatives will not carry cash on them to weddings unless specifically told to… but soda IS free all night…

I would say Beer would be serve and put the for like one hour. that way they know if they need to drink more they need to bring cash.

Personally I wouldn’t write anything on the invitation.

I wouldn’t even put it on the invitations.
ETA: I think most people assume they will have to pay for drinks, and will be pleasantly surprised with the free drinks. 🙂

I’d include it on the website and not the invitation. It is good to let people know that they may need to bring cash

@msfahrenheit:I would absolutely love to do this, except that most of my family and probably his too will not even bother looking at the website, they just won’t think to- most live close and won’t need directions or anything. So I don’t think they’d see that information.
Hm, maybe my mom is right… after all, if they don’t have cash there’s always soda I guess.

That’s a tough one, I don’t really think there is a way to word that for the invite! How about spreading the word? Maybe have your mom tell some family.
