What do your guests like? Every crowd is different in what they like and what they don’t. Take a poll of several of your friends and family to get an idea of what to buy.

It’s always better to have too much than to run out. Most places will let you return anything that hasn’t been opened with a receipt but double check to see what their policies are. Costco/Sam’s definitely do if you are a member.

Bev mo has a good policy as far as returns, if you’re not sure, ask to speak to the manager when u make your purchase. Bev mo also has chartsthat at tell you how much to buy;)

According to Real Simple’s Wedding Wine and Liquor Calculator, for 200 guests you would need:

Red Wine: 20 bottles
White Wine: 20 bottles
Champagne: 40 bottles
Beer: 240 bottles
Vodka: 8 bottles
Gin: 4 bottles
Rum: 4 bottles
Bourbon: 4 bottles
Scotch (blended): 4 bottles

You can mix and match, but I would estimate 1 drink per person per hour.
