After seeing another thread about the price of pop, I thought I better check out our venue.
Our venue charges $1.50/each for a 16 oz. glass of pop (new fill or refills, same price)
You can get unlimited pop for a set fee of $150
We will be having 175 total people at our wedding, with approximately 20 under the age of 21. Most adults will be drinking alcohol, I assume. We will also have punch (a requirement from my mother). I’m on the fence … take a chance and go with unlimited, or do per glass? The reception starts at 5:30 p.m. and will go until 11 p.m. (dinner, dancing, DJ, etc.)

I think you should bet on everyone having at least 1.

If I have an alcoholic drink at the beginning of the night, I’d probably switch to pop or water after that. If a lot of people who are over 21 do that, then you’d be better to do the flat fee for unlimited.

I would definitely be all over that $150 flat fee!!!

I would definitely pay the $150 fee! If you are planning on having 175 people, that fee already saves you money even if they have one glass and to be honest, people get hot and will inadvertantly end up getting refills during the night. A lot of people do what Annabelle mentioned- switching to soda as the night goes on. I think you’ll save on this option :o) Good Luck!!!!

Totally agree with going with the unlimited, that way there are no surprises at the end.

Unlimited is the way to go. It’s not too pricey and you won’t be left with any surprised at the end of the night! It’s amazing how many cups of that stuff kids can drink!
