@NY152:  we have 120 people. We are also having mixed drinks though so my list from the caterer wouldn’t work for you. But I assume that you could get away with 30 bottles of wine and 8 cases of beer ?

you know your crowd best

Evite has a great drink calculator – google that. 

I’m getting waaay for booze than that for ~125 people… but our friends like to party and we can stay at the venue until the wee hours. Probably 4 kegs and 50 bottles of wine?

eta: Fiance just said 8 kegs, very seriously.

Can you call around to your local liquor stores to find out if any will let you return unused bottles of wine and liquor?  That’s what we did, so we purchased what ended up being way more than we needed and didn’t have to worry that we’d run out.

We didn’t buy any insurance…we didn’t really give it any thought, to be honest.  The caterer we hired let us bring our own alcohol and recommended a store they work with often.  They did require that the alcohol be purchased from a store in DC (where the wedding was) because it’s illegal to bring alcohol across state lines.  Are you worried about the liability of people drinking and driving?  Or just anything that can happen when people drink too much?

@lolot:  Haha, yes.. my Fiance said 6.. however, I wouldn’t put it past his friends… We are providing all of the alchohol for our guests.. but we have a guest list of 300 or more.. so I am thouroughly confused as to how much to provide… We are going to guess and hope for the best!

This is a rough calculation for 30 party people who will be walking to their hotel rooms (destination wedding). I had a chart with price per unit and totals but it doesn’t show up on here so I had to edit and just share estimated quantities.

Champagne
10

Wine
30

Beer
100

Liquor
4

Sodas/Juice
60

Water
30
