I second Mrs. Grape!  Sounds good to me.  And I don’t even think it’s really much etiquette issue any more either.  Weddings are expensive enough without the cost of having to pay for all of the beverages.  We’re going to be doing a partially cash bar too…but with the welcome bags, including 1 free cocktail for each guest…after 1, it’s on them…

I think the wording “No host bar” will sound better on the card than “cash bar”

@Mrs Hedgehog: I believe it’s where guests pay 2-3 dollars for a drink rather than full price.

we’re having cash bar – but didn’t put anything on the invites about it. i think most people expect it, and will end up having cash or cc with them anyway (just in their wallet or purse).

Sounds fine to me! You could put “Toonie bar” if you want, too. Sounds cuter that way, imo. 🙂

ETA: For those who do not know what a toonie is. We call one dollar coins “Loonies” because they have a picture of a loon on them, so it only makes sense to call a two dollar coin a “toonie” 😉

I like the idea of toonie bar because it sounds fun and tells them exactly how much they should expect to pay for drinks.

don’t write cash bar in invite… instead let your bridal party spread by mouth that it is a cash bar

I like the “No Host Bar” if you feel like you REALLY need to say something. If no one is expecting an open bar anyway, just leave it off.
