- Wedding: June 2014
I had a get together with my family today to discuss wedding details. It went terribly to say the least. My sister & I both ended up crying and obviously have terrible communication.
ANYWAYS, everyone seems to have a different opinion on how much alcohol we should have for the wedding. So PLEASE bees, Tell me if this is TOO MUCH, TOO LITTLE, or JUST RIGHT??
June wedding. Ceremony time is 5pm and we have the venue until 11pm. Then we are having an afterparty at the hotel room which we have until 4am.
We are expecting a 15-30 min ceremony and then going to take photos so people will be drinking from roughly 5:30pm-10:30pm.
We get to bring all of our own alcohol. FIs friends are quite heavy drinkers and of our guest list of 100-110 people, 90% are drinkers.
This is what I think we should be getting:
20 cases of beer — 480 beers
5 bottles of crown royal — (750ml) — about 50% of our guest list LOVES crown, so this is the most requested liquor.
3 bottles of vodka — (750ml)
1 bottle Bacardi clear rum — (750ml)
1 bottle of Caption Morgans Spiced rum — (750ml)
20 bottles of wine (10 red, 10 white) (Using wine for toast so 12 bottles on tables & 8 at the bar. — We dont have many wine drinkers)
Coke, Diet coke, sprite, gingerale, tonic, club soda, orange juice, cranberry juice, pineapple juice, & bottled water.
Am I buying too much? My family is all over the place. Suggesting much less than I think we need. FI said most of his buddies are going to drink 8-15 beers each. A few of them are big boys (300lbs+) & have high drinking tolerance so I just dont want to run out.
