    I said 40-60 but I was thinking 2L bottles… do you mean the big bottles of pop or cans?

    I suppose then it depends how long your reception is going go and whether it’s hot. If it was me I would probably drink 2 bottles along with a coffee. If there’s dancing though perhaps 3. I would count on 2 bottles per person to be safe. So perhaps somewhere around 200.

    I think you should have 2-3 servings per guest.  I would also be sure at least one of the options is a Diet Soda.  

    I know when we have parties at work the Diet is always the first to go so you may want to have a little extra of that.

    Opps didn’t read the part where you said small bottles. I thought they were 2L

    So I change my answer to  140 to 160. I usually can’t drink a whole bottle of pop to myself but I know a lot of people will.

    My caterer has said that for alcoholic drinks you should allocate about 2 drinks per person per hour.  So that is 5 drinks for 2.5 hours per person, so 500 total.

     

    I’d always rather err on the side of too many, versus not enough.  Especially since this is your only refreshment.
