I had 150 people. We had 2 cases of champagne, and we went through about 4 more cases of wine and one keg. We could’ve used another keg but we let people buy more beer (lots of people would have drank a lot and they were expensive!)

We had 150 guests and we bought:

– 9 cases of red wine

– 7 cases of white wine

– 30 cases of beer

– 1-2 bottles each of whiskey, gin, vodka, etc.

– 1-2 bottles each of Kahlua, Baileys, etc for our specialty coffee bar

– Non-alcoholic – about 100 individual bottles (rather than cans) of pop, plus 2L bottles for mixed drinks, etc

– 120 glass bottles of Evian (10 cases)

What we had leftover:

– 2 cases of red wine

– 1 case of white wine

– 14 cases of beer (woah! Surprising since our friends are typically beer drinkers)

– about 2/3 of the hard liquor other than the scotch which disappeared pretty quickly! Clearly not a hard liquor crowd!

– about 40 of the little bottles of pop, not sure about the mixers other than some cans of Sprite that came back.

– 7 cases of Evian (turns out our caterer brought some too, so ours went more for table service since it was in pretty bottles rather than also being used for the whole night. Ugh. Lesson: Be clear and remind your caterer what you’re providing.)

We had ~115 people and bought 1 full keg of an amber ale, 1/4 keg of a dark dark beer, and 65 bottles of wine (half red half white).  We didn’t do champagne.  It turned out to be the perfect amount, we finished up the last few bottles of wine at the hotel after the reception.
