Wording advice... I don't want to offend

Our wedding is at a winery and we'll have the bar open for 4 1/2 hours.  I want to put a list of local cab companies on the bar for those who decide they want to party and aren't safe to drive home.  Do you ladies have any suggestions on wording?  I don't want anyone to be offended by wording...

    I would just put it in a very noticable place where no one can miss it

    and a big sign

    TAXI PHONE LIST
  • don't worry that one or two people could be offended.

    DUI is my absolute biggest anger issue!
  • this is something I'm really passionate about and honestly don't care if I offend. I plan on having our mc mention it and then the dj as well as a cab phone list.

    This lady is SMART!
  • Also make sure that your bartenders have a list.  I'll admit that as we were leaving our reception, a long line of cabs drove in to escort our drunk guests home.  ;)

  • Remember that tons of people hate to be told they have had too much to drink and refuse a taxi.  Don't let them because they could kill a woman with 5 young kids who will be lost without her
  • I like the idea of visibly publicizing this info at the reception. You can have the DJ mention it earlier in the night as well as closer to closing time. If a lot of your guests are staying at a hotel block, you could even see if that hotel has a shuttle that would run guests back, so it's free for them and you know they're getting back safe.

  • I didn't even think about this! What a great idea. Definitely going to be compiling a similar list for our reception!
