I would start by going to party planning websites and seeing how much alcohol they recommend you get.  Definitely try more that one as the recommendations vary.  Then with an idea of how many bottles you’re looking at you can multiply that by the different alcohols you’re looking at getting as there’s obviously going to be a big difference between Stolis and Grey Goose.  

Here are a few to check out:

It’s so hard for me to guess!  There are definitely ways to keep costs down (not stocking a full bar is huge) but regional prices and expectations make a huge difference as well.  For example, I can get a bottle of Pendleton whiskey in Cheyenne for less than it costs to buy one in Pendleton, OR!  

We’re expecting 150-175 people and I’m spending less than $1000 for wine and beer (and maybe a signature cocktail).  I know there’s no way we could have the same wedding in New York for same price but $2000 sounds like a good starting point to me.  Maybe some of the NY bees will jump in?
