I’m newly engaged and came across this forum, which has so far been the best source ever for a lot of my wedding questions! Thanks for the help already
My fiance and I plan to get married in Negril, Jamaica in April 2013 at a villa resort that accomodates about 50 people. We would like to provide pricing to our guests as an all-inclusive price that includes food and alcohol for 4 days and 3 nights. The owner gave us a price for food (about $40 per day per person) that seems to work. For alcohol, we’re still trying to come up with an estimate. We would have some combination of beer, wine, and a few spirits.
Any ideas on how to estimate the amount of alcohol our guests would consume each day and how to price it?

I’m not really sure. I guess it depends on you guests, but they will all be on vacation, so it’s likely they will drink a lot more than they normally would. It also depends on what the resort villa charges per drink, and what your guests want to drink. When I think of Jamaica, I think of rum punch and that type of drink.
If they don’t like the pricing or the resort that you choose, they could always (and may decide to anyway) stay at an all-inclusive of their choosing. We are doing a Destination Wedding and some of our guests are staying at other resorts.

Usually is more costefficient to go with a open barbrith house brands. But I always recommend my brides to coordinate with the hotel to go based on consumption that way people are not limited but you have a control since you tell the catering dept to tell you when you have hit a certain point…
