So for our in-formal BBQ & Band style wedding, alcohol wise we have three options- A beer truck, wine, and a giant margarita machine. Now, personally I LOVE margaritas and will drink them all day long, and will on wedding day. If I figure one an hour, thats about 8 a person till the end of the wedding. But, if you would, please answer the poll so I can have a little guidance on what normal people do… CHEERS!

May I suggest using the machine as a “slushie” machine and having a few liqours they can pour in. I don’t drink tequila, but I would use white rum or vodka, and if kids see Margaritas they will think they are slushies and then you risk the possible melt down from not being allowed the sauce. This was just my first couple of thoughts while reading. I love the idea though, it will be popular for sure, especially if its hot out

If your margarita machine makes slushy margaritas, I would drink them all night long too!
I went to a clambake a few years ago where there was beer and a margarita machine and it was pretty much split along gender lines. The guys mostly drank beer and the girls mostly drank the margaritas.

It’s a two compartment one so there will be strawberry daqs too. It’s funny, we actually welcomed kids but are only having 8 total from all 200 guests! But we will be marking the drinks clearly and having something fun for the kids!

I LOVE me some margaritas, but having people drink margaritas all night long sounds dangerous to me!

That’s a good point. Most people (and maybe I just speak for myself) are pretty darn tipsy after two or three margaritas. If it were me, I’d probably calculate how many margaritas are mixed in the machine, and then allow for 2-3 per person, or 2-3 for the number of guests you assume will be drinking them. Just a thought, especially if super tipsy guests isn’t what you had in mind.

Yea, I think they we are really going to make them week as possible… it’s 2 gallons of mix then you sub in 1/2 gallon of water and tequila mixture… we will mix very light!!!

I voted “beer girl” since that is what I usually get. I think beer would be a little more widely appealing than the others, but I do love me a good margarita… I’m no help lol

I would probably switch to wine or something else throughout the night.

I love a good margarita but I couldn’t drink more than 2-3 before I had to switch, something with the fruity if I drink too much of it I get heart burn.

I looove margaritas…and we rented a frozen drink machine for our wedding!
We rented it months ago, but we just hired our bartender. He warned us that it only serves about 10 drinks before you have to put more mix in/refreeze it, but we decided it was worth it anyways.

I stick to one type of alcohol the entire night (or else I pay for it later!).
I went to a b’day party with a margarita machine and most people drank that the whole time (vs. drinking beer/wine)
