We did the two buck chuck from trader Joes and people loved it and for $2.99 a bottle it a great deal.

We got wine from Costco, it was around $12 a bottle and people enjoyed it. If you’re near a Bevmo, they should be great too. As for return policy, check if there are wine wholesalers near you. They often have a return policy for bottles of unopened wine.

I think it depends on what quality of wine you want… we’re getting a lot of ours from local wineries/ thought different wine club memberships that we have and getting it for about half of the shelf cost. 

However, if you just want something really inexpensive but still pretty decent, I second the previously made suggestion of Trader Joe’s two buck chuck. Buy a bottle of each type to taste before you commit to cases 😉

There is two buck chuck, and that is an option. I will disclose this though: If you have anyone at your wedding who is into wine, they will know though that it is super inexpensive! I used to not notice until I started going wine tasting, and now in some ways I’m ruined! I can’t go back to two buck chuck!

You could check out bevmo if you are looking for a good deal. Sometimes they essentially have buy one get one free deals.

@Skittles131:  our coordinator has recommended for us to either go to Costco( they will allow returns) or total

Im getting all of my wine from Costco. I actually went their yesterday, wrote down everything they had under 10 bucks, then went home and googled each one. Of course some were crap, but I found a couple winner for $6-7 each. 

Another good option is bevmo 5 cent sale. But again, make sure you try the wine of research before you buy tons of cases of gross wine.
