I don’t think there’s a way that you can have two groups of guests in the same venue at the same time but only pay for some of their drinks.  It’ll just be too chaotic and touchy.  I think you should cut the free drinks at a certain hour (before the in-town guests arrive), or set some other kind of limit.  Would it be possible to switch from a per-head cost to a per-consumption cost at that point?  Otherwise I would just turn it into a cash bar.

If that’s the case, what if you instituted a cut-off point with the venue?  As in, the drink tab will be closed once it reaches $X amount.  That way your future in-laws won’t be stuck with a horrendous bar tab, and the bartenders can be a bit more consistent about when and to whom open bar has been closed.
