we did not have either, but none of my family really drinks. We did have a toast with champagne but also offered sparkling cider for those that did not wish to drink.
We had a cash bar because I couldn't afford an open bar. I was married in England and the British can drink!
Honestly, if it were an Olympic sport, it would be a race for the gold with the Germans and the Irish.
I was always taught that a cash bar is the absolute tackiest thing you could ever do at a wedding. Seriously, skimp on flowers if you have to. Anything. But do NOT ever have a cash bar. DH's cousin had that and nobody drank. Insane.
Obviously we had open bar.

I had both. It was open bar up until the last 2 hours, It worked out well because by then everyone had already had their drinks.
We did open bar, but you have to do what you have to do. People will understand. Now, if you are getting married at the most expensive place ever and people are wearing tuxes or something, then you'd better have an open bar. You know what I mean?
I think if money is the issue, you can also have open bar for beer and wine, but have guests pay for liquor. I've known many people to do that.
Cash bar would be better for the bride and groom, but a host bar is nicer for the guests. We had neither and eloped.
cash bar, hopefully people wouldn'y go crazy drinking to much
we had a cash bar but had champagne and a couple other things for free.
