@CoffeeandCream:  My daughter’s wedding was 2 summers ago, so I don’t remember exact numbers, but  I (borrowed) either 3 or 4 of those large camping chests.  I filled them with ice, and then put the drinks in there.  For 65 people, I bought a case of individual bottled waters, and perhaps 4-6 or so Paul Newman quarts of lemonade (I figured it would be less messy, better uses of my time, and it was on sale! and several 2 liters of Coca Cola-mainly for Rum & Cokes, my (grown) kids friends favorite drink, we also served wine.) I put some ice in each of the maybe 3 large ice chests.  Then filled with the drinks.  We had a drink dispenser with the lemonade.  We probably had another 2 large bags of ice.  Luckily, it wasn’t too hot.  ** It is worth it to have a day of coordinator to help with everything!! **(My two aunts really helped us out, as did other close family members-but that is how my family is.)  If you don’t have a lot of money to spend for a day of coordinator, I would suggest you hire kids from your church?, college students, or if you belong to any type of organization and have aquaintances that would be glad to help, or family members that wouldn’t mind chipping in, it is sure helpful.  It will also make it easier for you to relax and enjoy the day, as MOB!!
