We’re having just beer and wine at our reception, which will be about 5 hours long. Anyone else have a beer and wine only reception? How much beer and wine did you buy? I’m looking into getting it all at Trader Joe’s and Costco, with the hopes that I can return any unopened cases and bottles.

We had 130 guests and bought the following:
- 8 cases of red (12 bottles/case)
- 7 cases of white (12 bottles/case)
- 20 cases of beer
- Probably a dozen bottles or so of hard liquor
Here’s what we had left over:
- 3 cases of red
- 3 cases of white
- 8 cases of beer
- about half the hard liquor if not more
I know there’s an online alcohol calculator too….. Try this one (there were a few that came up when I googled it):

Dang. That calculator told me I would need this much:
100 Guests Beer: 200 bottles Champagne: 30 bottles Red wine: 36 bottles White wine; 36 bottles
For 100 people!

@Willow1991: Whoa! That seems a bit much! This is the calculator we’re going by:
Once the alcohol is gone, it’s gone.
