I’m sorry, I’m really confused. Are you saying you have unlimited beer and wine, but hard liquor is a cash bar? I think most people would call that a wine and beer only open bar. In which case… no problem?

@acfulhorst:  I think that the host bar with beer and wine is pretty standard, you don’t have to explain that if someone wants anything else its their tab.

We did this.  I did two things to let people know:

1.  In our programs, I wrote “after the ceremony, the bride and groom will be hosting house wine, house beer, and pepsi products downstairs”

2.  I made up a sign that the venue posted on the bar – It said:  

“The Bride and Groom are pleased to host:”

And then it had a list of all the specific wines, all the beers, and the non-alcoholoic drinks that were free to guests.

Below that I had a box outlined in red that said “Other beverages available for puchase, including mixed drink cocktails, premium liquors, imported beer, etc.  Just ask our friendly bartenders!”

And at the end it said something like, “please enjoy the night responsibly”

If it were me, I’d just go with the beer and wine. Some guests may be really offended if you had a cash bar. Then again, would you want those kind of guests at your wedding? Wink

@acfulhorst:  personally I would just have beer and wine available, have all other liquors put away for the evening.
