You can make small menu signs for the bar: Beer, wine, and vodka based drinks compliments of the bride.

I think most people would get the hint. The bartender can also tell guests who order vodka drinks that contain other liquors that it’s not hosted/available.

Maybe just come up with a list of “Complimentary drinks” that include vodka or gin. That way there won’t be any confusion, people can look at the list and order a vodka tonic, vodka and cran, vodka martini, whatever else is on there.

I would come up with 4 mixes ( vodka tonic, vodka cran etc) and give them cute names that relate to you and your fi and list them on the menu w the ingredients

Ie-

The smith fizzy

( vodka & soda)

The smith wedded bliss

( vodka & cranberry)

I missed the gin – I’d throw that on the sign as well! Will other drinks be available on a cash bar basis or will the bartender just say “sorry, that’s not available”?

I’d definitely go vodka if that’s the case! You might want to find out exactly which drinks/mixers will be complimentary and put them on your menu. For instance, will people be able to get vodka martinis, which require vermouth? That could get really confusing.

Regardless, you might want to ask the bartenders to tell guests the price of drinks (if applicable) when ordered in case the guest wants to change their order to something hosted. If I weren’t paying close attention and saw someone with a vodka tonic, I might not think to look at the sign and just assume you had a full open bar.

I’ve seen a small sign that is framed up on the bar that says “beer and wine compliments of the happy couple” something like that would be cute. I’ve also been to a bar where the bartenders just told everyone what was covered (does seem like that would get old saying over and over again though).
