I'm getting married this Sept and we were planning on having a cash bar. Now we were planning to provide all the pop, water and beer free of charge, but guests would pay for their own wine, champaine and cocktails. I was in two different weddings last year and BOTH brides had a cash bar and no one seemed to really care at all. I went and Googled how much alcohol we would need for our guests and as I was researching that, I noticed on some of the wedding sites, people were saying how rude cash bars are. Now I'm worried about what people will think if we have a cash bar. We were going to put on our wedding site information about what will be served for dinner and also give a heads up about their being a cash bar so that its not a surprise. We're having a wedding that's more on the casual side as well, so I don't know if that makes a difference. We're not having some super fancy, upscale wedding at a Hilton or anything like that. If we're providing all pop, water and beer, is it really that big of a deal to charge for the cocktails and wine? Just to make one more thing clear..we are NOT making any profit off of the cash bar. We're only charging enough money to pay for the cost of all of the alcohol that will need to be purchased.
