I found this fun and informative article on http://www.elegala.com/ today and thought I would share since this seems to be a very common question.

THE CASH BAR ISSUE

Yes, weddings are expensive. Yes, couples should be on the lookout for budget saving tips. Yes, weddings are expensive – we know. But never – under any circumstances – should you ever consider hosting a cash bar at your reception. Think about it – you would never ask anyone to pay for a cocktail in your own home. People at your reception are still your guests, even if the event is not held in your house. That said, if a full bar is not within your budget, consider these alternatives:

1.) Host a soft bar, in which guests can order champagne, beer and wine.

2.) Find a reception site that allows you to bring in your own alcohol; you will save serious cash, and anything unopened can be returned for a full refund.

3.) Cut down the size of your guest list – the only significant way to reduce costs in the first place.
