I would cover the basics… a vodka, rum, peach or apple schnapps, and then anything else that you know that your guests like!  If you know that you want to have items to make white russians, definitely make sure and tell the bartender.  Not all wedding bars always stock half and half or milk, so def tell them if  you want it!

I agree with PP on having the basic liquors. Or you can offer signature drinks to limit the guests’ choices and to shorten the list of alcohol that your bartender will need to bring.

I am a bartender and this is what I think (lol): Jameson and Johnnie Black for sure. No need to bring any kind of special vodka, gin, or rum. Just the sipping stuff, cuz no one wants to sip on well whiskey!

I would also suggest to make sure that triple sec/Cointreau will provided because it is an ingredient in many drinks.

If your crowd is a tequila crowd def bring some Patron or cheaper innocente (for shots) but not well teq unless its for a mixed drink.

Also for your mom’s sake I would make sure that they are bringing milk/cream for her white russians, or else she may have to get aquainted with black russians.

@joy and tuna-Gin and rum are well and will be there already

@joy- I am one of those who love my Gin 🙂

Good Luck!

vodka and rum for sure…..but my personal vote is for gin

You should ask the important older folk at your wedding what they drink.  Must please the uncles.  Men often drink scotch.
