I was looking online for wine since I am thinking I might want to serve alcohol at the wedding. My question that I need answered from the hive is this, “How many bottles of wine should I get if I am having 61 guests?” For the people invited they aren’t heavy drinkers, probably three little glasses of wine would be the top, and 8 out of my 61 guests are under age. How many bottles do you think I should have? 20 bottles? A million bottles?! LOL.
Guesses are perfectly fine, I don’t even know where to begin. xD

I think one bottle is generally 4-5 glasses. So 61-8= 53, to be safe 53/4= 13 (rounding). So 13 bottles of wine gets everyone roughly 1 drink. If you got 39 bottles, everyone would get roughly 3.
Someone please double check my math because its NOT my strong suit, and also correct me on the number of glasses thing too lol.

We’re having 54 guests, will provide 14 bottles of wine – 2 bottle per table. Same boat as you, most guests are not heavy drinkers, 4 are underage and several don’t drink at all 🙂

@Sunnyday278: I have a math disability so I am just going to say your math is flawless! Thanks for the advice, I am going to use it!
@jessmicas: I am glad you can relate to this, you’ve helped me know where to start, thanks!

I would assume 1 bottle for every 2 guests. So 61 – 8 = 53 / 2 = 26.5 bottles. Then I’d round up to 30 because I’d be paranoid about running out!

@CityBearBride: That’s what I’d be scared about too! I definitely don’t want to run out!
