    I would say more wine.  People are there to cut loose (probably).

    If I don’t have to drive or pay for it?  3 glasses.

    ….wow, I sound classy.

    I think you should estimate 3 per person. And just tell the servers to only refill the glass when it’s almost empty. Some guest will drink less some more. If someone is drinking more than that durning dinner knowing that there is an open bar afterwards, they may have a problem.

    I don’t drink wine and I know many people who don’t as well. Ask your guests since that is who will be consuming it and would be the more accurate target audience. Take a poll of your parents, closest friends, etc to see what they prefer and go from there.

    Oh, I just read closer about the bonfire with open bar.  If I were a close enough friend of yours to know that dinner drinks were paid for by you, and bonfire drinks were included in the all inclusive, I’d probably save the party for later.  Maybe 1-2 glasses of wine at dinner.

    Like a PP said if I knew there would be an open bar after dinner, I would probably only drink 1 or 2.

    I’d drink three glasses with dinner. As for the post-dinner open bar, that would depend entirely on how buzzed I became during dinner – I might drink another couple of glasses during the open bar, or I might drink a whole lot.

    Like previous posters, I would estimate about 3 per people. I usually only have about 2 but at weddings I definitely cut lose!

    I think probably 3-4 glasses.  Ran it by my fiance and he agrees.  People tend to neglect to think about there being open bar later and frontload a bit at the beginning.  Plus, I know I tend to go through wine pretty quickly when eating a nice meal if I know I’ve got nowhere to drive and nothing to worry about in the morning.

    I’d say 3 glasses. My rule of them (dinner or no) is 2 drinks in the first hour and 1 drink every hour thereafter. Most people metabolize 1 drink/hour and having 2 drinks in me makes me feel happy/relaxed without being drunk. 

    Although most people probably don’t drink as deliberately as I do 🙂

    None. I don’t drink wine (or beer). I didn’t vote in the poll because there is no option for me.
