just spread it via word of mouth. That’s how we did it for my wedding and not a soul complained. Also if you’re not registered and people ask then you tell them then. Just say we don’t need any gifts and that’s why we didn’t register anywhere.

Whether you register or not is irrelevent to the cash bar issue. The two things are separate and no one is going to feel differently about giving a gift or about the cash bar because of the other.

You should spread the word about the cash bar by word of mouth and you shouldn’t say a thing about gifts, whether you want them or not.

Could you skip the favors and host another keg or two? Most people don’t give a crap about favors, but another half hour or an hour of alcohol might be well-appreciated.

@babbot:  $425 a keg? Wow, that’s really high. Anyway, good luck with the wedding!

@mrsSonthebeach:  i agree.

 

@babbot:  this has nothing to do with your open bar but skip those favours.  your venue could find out.  if even 1 guest opens that favour, your wedding could be shut down immediately.  liquor laws are very strict.  it’s really not worth the risk.  play it safe, obey your venue rules – no outside liquor.

@babbot:  it is beautiful there.  colorado is one of the most beautiful states we’ve been to (we road tripped across north america).
