@papercrafter:  I would get enough for there to be two bottles of water per person.  Will you be providing other drinks?  If not, then plan for like four per person!!  You can always take home the extra.

I would get a lot. Like, twice what you think you need. An August wedding in a barn? I would probably drink 4-6 bottles myself, but I’m big on hydration. You can take home extra, but if you run out that would not be good, especially if you are having alcohol.

@papercrafter:  I agree with @BlondeMissMolly…you definitely need at least 4 or more waters per person. In August and outside is going to be brutal. If there is dancing and people are going to be working up a sweat, you need even more.

@papercrafter:  That’s a really long day…with that information, I would change my response to 1 bottle an hour and maybe decrease it to 1 bottle for every two people the last 2 hours if you think a lot of people will leave early. Also, even if people don’t finish a whole bottle, a lot of times people put a bottle of water down, forget where they put it and just go get a new one, especially if it is on someone else’s tab. I don’t think you can overbuy for this and worst case scenario, you can use the leftovers.

This is an important point to consider. You’ll need a lot more bottles than will actually be consumed because people lose their drinks.

I would do a bottle per person, per hour.

I’m also voting on one bottle per person per hour. You can always drink what’s left over.

And consideing the place doesn’t have a sink… Make sure you have bathroom facilities as well! You can rent some really posh trailers to avoid the port-o-potty ick. At the very least, people will want a method of cleaning their hands.
