  • poll: Is this enough choices for alcohol (1 red, 1 white, 1 prosecco, 3 draft beers, 3 bottled beers)?


    no, add more wine choices

    no, you should try to cover the liquor costs

    happycamper8:  I think it’s ok but I would try and pick the most universally appealing white/red wines. So for the white maybe a sav blanc? Not too dry… I don’t drink red but maybe a cab sav or a blend.

    More than enough! We’re doing one red, one white, a champagne toast a couple different beers and our signature cocktail. There’s not even a liquor option unless you want the cocktail.

    happycamper8:  Yes, it is fine. You can not please everyone and you can not go broke trying to do so. They will drink or they won’t.

    Most weddings I’ve been to have one sparkling one red one white plus beer as a choice. Normally people will like one out of three! I wouldn’t add anything, just choose more popular styles like pp said. If you aren’t a big wine drinker and don’t know what to choose, ask the bar staff for their suggestion or take an informal poll from your family and friends to see what they’d like the most!

    happycamper8:  That’s pretty much what we’re offering (though it’s by consumption so won’t be unlimited; should last a fair amount of time though): 1 red, 1 white, 1 rose, 1 draft lager, 3 bottled lagers, 3 bottled beers, 1 bottled cider, and of course soft drinks. As it’s a hotel/restaurant spirits and cocktails will still be available, but guests will need to purchase them if they want them, likewise if they want a different wine, wine by the bottle, or champagne. The wines we’ve chosen are very drinkable and should appeal to most people.

    I think that’s definitely enough, and not worth it to expand for those crazy prices!

    I agree with PPs – it is definitely enough. You dont want people getting wasted at your wedding and I dont think its worth an additional $7+ per glass – that’s a little outrageous!

    Signature cocktails are fun, but honestly I think that’s a reasonable selection. I’d be happy as a guest 🙂

    PLEASE do not do a chardonnay for the white.  Inexpensive/house chards are usually really gross (and are not always cheap!)  They’re seriously an acquired taste and MANY wine drinkers do not like chard.  I’d stick to a sauvingnon or a pinot grigio. Even a white “table wine” (usually a cali or french blend) would be great!

    happycamper8:  That’s plenty! Don’t break the bank for one or two more options, you have more than enough! The addicitional prices seem outrageous. I love prosecco 😉 

    As far as red and white wines go, I’d pick a cab sauvignon and a pinot grigio. They are just sort of generally liked.
