Why a poem? I think people tend to over-do the cutesy wedding “poems” on tags and signage. How about a polite and simple info card where that is just one thing mentioned? That way none of the men that open the invite cringe from the cuteness.

My honest opinion? You don’t need a cutesy way to tell people it’s a cash bar. Just be as clear as possible:

“We will be providing complimentary beer, wine, soda and juice. There will be a cash bar available for all other alcoholic beverages.”

Ya I think just having a menu  on the bar with their beer and wine options is fine. I dont think you need to warn people ahead of time.

Please don’t use a poem.  Just stating it on the website/info card/passing it through word of mouth is enough.  🙂

I don’t even think you need to put anything in your invite.  Just put it on your website maybe if you think it would be a problem for anyone.

I thought we might need something like that, but when the servers went around during cocktail hour, they specified “Beer, wine or soda?” when they took orders.  If people wanted something else, then they were told there was a charge for those.  And then we also used word of mouth and just told people.

I agree, just add a card that says free blah blah, bring cash for liquor. But in a nice way of course lol I like what @KatyElle: said.

I agree that you don’t really need to include anything on the invitations.  I good portion of weddings now are either cash or only have a limited open bar that no one would show up with some cash just in case.  It would be fine to put it on the website, maybe even make a little (straight forward) sign for the bar, but definitely don’t put it on the invitations.
