I’d have someone actively ask for keys. I doubt anyone is going to read it. They’ll just pick up their drink and saunter off.

 

Edit: Or put a huge fish bowl with a sign stating that people need to put their keys in first before ordering a drink.

Please do not do this. While I agree that people should not drink and drive, this sends the message that you are expecting your guests to get blotto then get behind the wheel.  I think lining up the designated drivers is fantastic— kudos to you— I would simply ask them to keep an eye out as folks begin leaving, and discreetly offer a sober ride home to those who need it.

Most folks are perfectly aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, and plan in advance how they are going to get home; please treat your guests like the responsible adults that they are.  DH and I, like pretty much all of our friends, know before we get to a wedding (or party or any social gathering) who will be driving home, and there’s no way we would be turning over our car keys.

I don’t know if you’ve made any final decisions but I’ve been to weddings where they have a van/bus to take people home who have been drinking and it seemed to help out quite a bit. Just a suggestion. Good luck!

I would choose a different font for that if you are going to post it by the bar.  Honestly, after a people have had a few they might have trouble reading it!
