I wouldn’t worry about it.  The bartender is going to be savvy enough to know who is part of the wedding and who isn’t.  Unless your wedding is really casual, so that hotel guests coming in from the pool will blend in with you, they’ll be able to distinguish guests.  If you are really worried about it, speak to the hotel and ask them how they usually handle this and what precautions they will take to limit consumption to wedding guests only!

My friend recent;y had her’s in a hotel as well, one that has a rather large and popular resturaunt in it – I don’t think that they had any issues. The bartender kept up with things rahter well.

I wouldn’t worry too much.

On another note – I just thought of – unless you have some kid of signthat things are free, no one would know with out going up to order and taking the chance they have to pay for things.

Is your cocktail hour in the actual bar of the hotel?

Are you paying a flat rate for the open bar? Like $XXX per hour? If so its in the hotel’s (and thus the bartender’s) best interest to make sure that only your guests (and pre dermined headcount) are served. If you are paying per drink, then that is a different story but i’m sure that they would still be good and keep an eye on who is your guest and who isn’t….

Also…. why isn’t the hotel reserving that for just you… it should say closed for private party.
