If these people are as close to you as you say they are Im sure it wont be "tacky" to them. And secondly, for the others who aren't invited to even bring it up and tell you that I think is what is tacky. I mean here you are about to celebrate your big day and you want it to be as perfect as your budget allows for them to point out something negative I think comes across alittle rude...but again I dont want to judge b/c I dont know any of them. In the end, its your wedding and you should do what you are comfortable with. Just explain to your guests that you can only do what you can do and leave it at that. If they still find it for lack of a better word tacky then your kinda in a lose lose situation.

We paired down the bar menu list they gave us to 4 specific drinks. We'll do two hours "open bar" which will include meal time in which people will be eating along with drinking so that will automatically cut down on SOME of it. It's easier to announce on the web site and newsletter "Please enjoy an open bar for all of our dinner guests featuring Mojitos, Sangria, rum punch and draft beer from 7-9pm" That doesn't sound tacky to me at all, and it still serves the purpose of letting them know it is not an all night boozefest. And to be honest? If given the option of paying for all their own drinking or having some of it paid for, I think it's a no brainer for most guests. They know we are not made out of money therfore they would know the reason behind it. If anyone has a problem with it, it's their problem. lol But then, I'm a b*tch that way.

4 drinks is a lot. I don't think the B&G need to foot the bill for binge drinking. besides, they can drink a lot any other night of the vacation.
Unless you want the reception to be a late night party with a lot of drinking. In that case, i'd find a way to accomidate that.

For our wedding, we partied with guests and drank on the other nights of the vacation. On our wedding night, we didn't stay out late. Everyone still had fun without us there.
