Hi, I’ve been to a couple of family weddings before where they had a couple of kegs and it was first-come/first-serve. Usually, it runs out within an hour and then people pay for whatever else they want. I don’t think people got upset about it.

If you go to any bar, a keg is usually under the bar. That’s how they have beer on tap. A bartender should know what to do. I think you are over-thinking the situation. The only way the keg would run out in a few hours is if everyone at the wedding orders only beer.

I personally don’t think its right to only offer alcohol to your wedding party and not your guests. Are you having a cocktail hour? You could offer an open bar during cocktail hour (but you’d probably have to make other alcohol choices available during this time) and then switch to a cash bar for the remainder of your reception.
