I think you can definitely switch to cheaper stuff.  I would just try to keep it somewhat consistent, so no one has to switch from a pinot grigio to a riesling.

This is perfectly acceptable!! I’ve never even been to an open bar wedding, so I’d be super impressed :). My cousin’s wedding was this past Friday, it was 9$ for a glass of cheap wine, and $3.50 for a freakin’ soda!!

I would just go for the cheaper bottle if its actually decent for bar service and if there is bottle service at the table go for the nicer bottle. Most people dont really know the difference between wines, honestly.

If you can swing it, I’d keep the nice stuff through dinner.  I know a lot of folks would appreciate it, particularly the older crowd that will only have a glass then.  I don’t think anyone would care/notice/have an issue once dancing has started.  If you can’t swing it, well, the budget dictates a lot of realities unfortunately.
