I just found out that a deposit was put down for a venue for my wedding in July. I'm fine with the venue, the only option is, this location has a bar, and due to budget we were only planning on having the champagne toast, and my preference was either we pay for wine/beer, or no alcohol at all. I am opposed to having a cash bar.
This venue has a bar that will be open, and for obvious reasons, will not turn customers away, which essential gives my wedding a cash bar. While I know in some areas it is common, it is not something that I feel is appropriate, and I'm afraid that people will feel that we are taking advantage of them if there is a cash bar.
Since a non-refundable deposit was already put down on the hall, I don't want anyone to be out that money, but at the same time how do I deal with the fact that now I'm going to have a cash bar at my wedding.
The reception is going to be at a knights of Columbus hall
