Cross Posted to "Food and Cakes" (hope thats ok)
I was wondering if it is rude to have a point in the evening where you switch from serving alcohol to serving punch/ fancy water/coffee? I am hosting beer, wine, and maybe a signature drink and will host that until the reception is over if it is rude not to but was contemplating switching to serving punch etc. at a certain point, likely 1 to 1.5 hours before the end of the reception.
So rude/inappropriate or ok?
