We had a venue that allowed us to provide our own alchol. It was WAY cheaper for us. We had about 75-80 ppl, I can’t remember exactly what we spent but it was probably about $700-$800 range.

Key for us – we made our own wine. Going through a Make-Your-Own wine shop, we were able to make a high end batch (each made 29-30 bottles) for way less than what we would buy it for, even by the case. I think we did two batches of red and 1 of white.

Check out the Wine Rack for wine, not just LCBO. What about people doing ‘shots’? Is this a popular thing in your circle? We had an open bar for our wedding (venue did not allow for outside alcohol) and groups of people doing ‘shots’/ toasts was a popular thing. You may want to add 3 or 4 bottles to accommodate this (ie Bailey’s, Tequila Rose, Sheridans) Allowing 1 bottle of wine seems too much, even if you have some wine drinkers. Many liquor places allow you to return unopened bottles for a full refund, so if you order too much of one thing you can return it. Not sure if this policy applies to beer cases.
