@eeosgood:  As a guest, I’d be completely happy with this.

Yes that would be fine, we are doing something very similar.

Yes, don’t worry that is more than enough! A lot of people just have a dark beer and light beer choice, and then a red wine and white wine. If you don’t feel it is enough, you can always add the signature cocktails in! Guest SHOULD be happy with the beer and wine though! 🙂

I think your plan is AWESOME! And you don’t have to worry about rowdy guests doing too many shots during the dancing!

As a guest I would be completely happy with this! Just make sure you put this information on your invitations so guess know to bring cash if they want mixed drinks, etc.

Its fine, but I would not allow anyone to purchase anything.  Bar closes after cocktail hour.

I’ve been to a few weddings that have done this. I love wine and Darling Husband loves beer, so it has always worked for us. Before the bar closes, we have noticed that people tend to stock up on drinks for later.
