We have been researching and thinking about alchohol supplies for our wedding. We have an unlimited beer and soft drinks/mixers package organised already, so just need to supply wine and spirits. Our wedding is in a tropical climate (Bali) and alcohol will be served from around 5:30pm to 11:30pm. *There will be 100-110 guests.
Below is our planned list:
10L vodka (a lot we realise but would prefer to have this in stock just in case everything else runs out)
40 bottles white wine; 20 bottles of red wine
Do you think this is enough for drinks including cocktails? Do you have suggestions on changes to quantities?
Thanks in advance for your help!!!

@Idling: Well let me start with wine….A bottle will give you 4 standard glasses of wine. 3 if the bartender is heavy handed. So right there you will have about 180-240 glasses. I think thats enough.But if your white count includes the champagne for the toast, you may hit a snag. I think it’s ok thought because you’ll have spirits and soft drinks.
As for the liqour…..I would up the rum and lower the vodka only because in tropic climates rum is the spirit of choice. But over all I think you’ll be fine.

@Miss Moxy: Thanks so much! The wine count doesn’t included champagne. I think with the champagne, we’ll just buy enough to cover a glass per person for speeches. It’s really hard to get your hands on in Bali without paying an arm and a leg for import taxes! Good idea about the rum/vodka numbers 🙂

Does L mean LITER?? That is a LOT of alcohol. There are about 22 drinks per liter of alcohol. So, you’re providing 638 drinks for 100 people. Not including wine. 60 bottles of wine is another 240-300 drinks, depending on how large the pours are.
That’s enough for each person to have 9 drinks each in 5 hours. That is a lot!
