Hello, all!! I'm originally from CT and relocated to MA about 5 years ago. I am happily engaged to the love of my life and we're in the middle of wedding planning. Now, I have already seen ALL over the boards ..... Cash bars BAD!! Cash bars RUDE!! In my experience, having never been to a wedding without an open bar before, I tend to agree.
However my dear fiancé has informed me that he has never been to a wedding with an open bar and he's not in favor of it. I have spoken with several friends who grew up in the area and they have the same story. Is that really a thing around here? I'm trying to come up with more ammunition to sway the opinion and it would be helpful to know that there ARE people in Central Mass who actually opt for an open bar.
What has been your experience?
