I haven’t been to a reception like that, it has always been all or nothing.  That being said, I wouldn’t mind it turning into a cash bar, just as long as I knew it was going to turn into a cash bar.  So I come prepared with some money! 🙂 

So just make sure the guests are aware so they can be better prepared for it:) I hate going to a wedding only to find out that I wasn’t aware it was a cash bar (this has happened and its inconsiderate in MY own opinion.)

Good LUck, let us know what you decide

Open bar for several hours at your reception and following then with a cash bar is totally fine. Usually your venue will provide signage at your bar counter which will indicate the timeframe for open bar and for cash bar. Having a beer/wine open bar and cash bar for liquor could get really ugly.

I’d rather have only beer and wine all night for free than a full open bar for 3 hours and then have it switch to cash. Also, be prepared for a mad rush on the bar 15 minutes before that 3 hours ends.
