Jairo Nelson forums.hitched.co.ukThat was our view. We have done our best to make our guests happy and provide for their needs. I’m seeing so many people complaining about the rudeness and stupidity of cash bars. Does that actually hold true? To afford a cash bar, we would have to postpone our wedding another year. My fiancé feels that the important thing is getting married and declaring our love and celebrating with family. It’s not his opinion that we should pay to have people drunk. If they choose to drink, it is up to them to do so. Reynol Pike, Moscow (Russia) last updated this 41-days ago [3]

Based on an article by weddingwire.caOne of the most important aspects in reception planning is to figure out how much alcohol you will need. Sure, it sounds simple, all you’ve got to do is line up a couple bottles and get a bartender on board, right? Wrong. You’ve got to decide on an open bar vs. Cash bar and figure out exactly how you’ll be serving up the drinks. There are many things that you can do besides setting up a reception bar. You might be able to serve a variety of wine or beer along with the meal, but there are several options. Although most experts on wedding etiquette recommend that your guests pay their own alcohol, the expectations of each region will differ. No matter which wedding bar you choose, it is important to clearly show your beverage options to your guests. We also recommend offering plenty of non-alcoholic beverages to ensure everyone stays hydrated. Shua Chester (Madurui, India), last edited 9 weeks ago [4]
