Why would they need cash? For tips? Or for a taxi?

Honestly, I have never used an ATM at a wedding and would never think of using one. I would have cash on me if I need it.

If it’s an open bar, what would they need cash for? I don’t see any reason to mention this on the invites.

Its proper etiquette to have cash on you. I wouldn’t mention it, to be frank.. It sounds like you’ll have an open bar is you mention not having an ATM.

The only thing it sounds like they need cash for is a tip, which is the hosts responsibility.There is no need to mention where they can obtain cash. Any mention of money or finances in public is impolite.

They shouldnt need cash- it’s on the host to tip. I definitely wouldnt put anything about it on the invite. Maybe maybe a small note on the website if you really want.

brightcat1:  For an open bar you are supposed to cover the tip so that your guests do not have to. With that being said, I always end up bringing a little bit of cash to weddings anyway, because I tip bartenders but I also recognize that doing so is not required. 

Also, I’ve never been to a wedding venue with an ATM. I wouldn’t expect a wedding venue to have one. I think it would be really strange for you to mention this anywhere.

I don’t think you need to mention it. I have never been to a wedding where the venue had an ATM, except for a hotel. I don’t think anyone expects an ATM and mentioning it might be strange. Also, if you are worried that the bartender won’t get tipped enough, you can opt to cover the gratuity and skip the tip jar.

I would say if you are really worried about it, mention it on your wedding website if you have one. Otherwise, I wouldn’t put it in the invite or anything.

What’s a honeymoon dance? Are you expecting your guests to pay for your honeymoon?

brightcat1:  If all they need cash for is tips, then spread it word of mouth. Although, if I remember correctly (one of the ettique bees will need to confirm or deny), that if it is open bar, as the host you pay for the tips too.
