I grossly overestimated how much alcohol I needed.  My wedding was in May and I am still drinking champagne with dinner!

Ask a larger liquor store. They should be able to help you. And if possible, find a place that takes back unopened bottles.

We are getting married at a vineyard and using their wine. They said to estimate about 3/4 a bottle per person. We can also bring in our own beer. Our friends are pretty heavy drinkers, so we are estimating 5 drinks a person and those that don’t have 5 drinks there will be plenty that will have more. We are just guesstimating the wine/beer split.

How did these calculators work for you ladies?  

I just did them for my wedding and The Party Source and The Perfect Party Planner gave me numbers very similar to what I was thinking but Evite wanted me to pretty much double everything!

Those links are SO helpful!  Thanks ladies for posting them!  I was just talking with Fiance about this issue the other day…he wants double the budget for alcohol that I had planned on having. 

I’ll be sure to take these numbers to him and see what he thinks.
