I’m not a beer person. So wine. Red wine to be specific. White I can drink but…ehhh.

If I was at a wedding, I probably wouldn’t have more than two glasses.

I’d bank on two drinks per person.

I’m a wine person. I will drink beer, but if I have the choice it will be wine.

I drink wine and typically about 1 drink per hour is good for me.  FI drinks beer and he’ll ususally have 1 – 1.5 drinks per hour.

I prefer a sweet white wines like Riesling. Would only have one glass the entire wedding because I’m a lightweight, but most of my friends would have 2-3. Hope that helps!

Probably, 1 beer and 1 wine glass. But ONLY if the wine was white or rose (sweet). If there was only red wine available, I’d probably go for 2 beers.

DH holds his alcohol better than I do, so he’d probably prefer 3-4 beers. Keep in mind that most men usually drink and/or eat more than women (that is why they charge extra for them at some buffet restaurants).

I don’t drink beer. I’d probably have a glass of wine every hour and a half or so.

Are you asking to get numbers for your bar? Most would average one drink per person per hour. It depends on your brands, it is was bad wine I opt for beer and vise versa

juneberries:  it depends. Pre-baby, 2 glasses in the first hour and one every hour thereafter

juneberries:  Probably one drink an hour.  I don’t like the taste of alcohol (especially wine and beer – I can hand rum ) and never use the bar, I just drink what’s on the table, which is always water.  Please be sure to provide non-alcoholic drinks as well.

they say 2 per person per hour.. but honestly that’s kind of insane.  I’d do closer to 1 per person per hour, but not quite so few just in case.

I’d say 1.5 per person per hour if you are calculating your bar. I like both beer and wine.

I must be a lush.  I would have 2 glasses of wine an hour, but would stop after 5-6 glasses, or at least really slow down then.  I think a lot of wine drinkers can easily drink a bottle in an evening.
