Hey!  Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

I know that in Ontario you can return unopened booze to the Liquor Store…I would imagine that it is the same anywhere, but to be safe you should double check. I had some friends build their own bar for their wedding and they elected to keep all the unopened booze entertain with at their home.  Returning the booze is obviously a great way to recoup some money.

I know that for my reception, (we looked into building our own bar) it really depended on what kind of party you were planning on having.  Is it a sit down dinner with wine?  Or sort of an open house/cocktail party kind of vibe?  

For a cocktail party, we were told that it was basically one drink/per person/per hour.  We have a lot of friends that like to…umm…party  🙂 so we bumped it up by one drink extra for the amount of time of the total party.  For a sit down dinner with wine, our venue claimed that guests would, on average consume half a bottle of wine each.  

Hope this helps a bit.  🙂

I have heard that if you buy from Costco (wine, etc) that you CAN return it if it isn’t opened, obviously! 🙂
