IMO, no. I think you should still provide beer and wine at the very least. I’ve always been told that guests at a wedding/party, shouldn’t ever have to take their wallets out of their pocket. So to me that means…no cash bar, tipping of bartenders/valets or money dance. It’s very nice of you to rent the whole hotel, btw. That will be so fun!

I agree with KateMW… If I was in your place, and I had guests who enjoyed drinking, I would sacrifice something else in the budget to provide at least beer and wine.  You’ll score even more hostess points when they have that free room to crash in later…

I think it’s a mental thing.  I agree that I would rather not pay for drinks at the reception, but I would have no problem shelling out money for  my room in the hotel….even if the room ended up costing me more.  I think it has something to do with the mentality that when you are at the party, you are certainly taken care of by your host.

That is very generous of you to rent out the hotel! But I agree, maybe beer, wine and a signature cocktail?

I’m not sure what is customary to you.  But the last few weddings I’ve been to the couple did not host a bar.  I didn’t mind at all. This is quiet understandable with the economy that we are having.  It also prevents people from getting abliterated at your own expense.
