We bash the cash (bar)

Con Poulos

Every part of the country has its own traditions, and we're all for that. But we can't get on board with the cash bar. We keep telling people that this is a major no-no (like inviting people to dinner and asking them to pay), but in response, brides tell us that this is customary in their area, and to lay off. We can't! We feel that your guests shouldn't have to stop at an ATM on the way to your reception. You don't need to blow your budget on a full bar; wine and beer are plenty, and you can get amazing deals by the case. What do you think? Do you agree that cash bars are the end of civilization as we know it? Or can you convince us otherwise? —Sally, BRIDES Magazine
