This would be way too little for our lot, I think. For starters, it’ll be at least 1 bottle of wine between 2 at the meal.

Cocktail hour will be at least two drinks each.

After the meal, most people will easily put away an extra 4 drinks.

I think it’s at least 8-10 drinks a person over the course of the day…

Maybe we’re all just alkies…

I’ll get back to you after our big day, and tell you what happened, booze wise!

EDIT: I just looked over our guest list again and did some maths based on guest demographics… that is still way too little for my lot…

Plus some of our old people are the biggest drinkers there, LOL!

There are three teetotallers coming to our wedding. Then there are about 10-15 moderate drinkers. The remaining 80+ will drink a lot more than that…

That won’t be enough for all the functional alcoholics at our wedding for about 40 adults. It will probably be enough for regular folks though.

@bebero:  I think it definitely depends on your guests.  I don’t drink at all, but most of my friends can drink quite a bit (guess who’s always designated driver lol).  I would think 5 oz of liquor wouldn’t be nearly enough to last the entire evening for my guests.  However, if you’ve got half a guest list of non-drinkers, like me, you’d probably be ok.

@bebero:  Are these figures per hour or total for the whole night?  It seems like too little for my group of family/friends.  Most are heavy drinkers and I think they’ll all come out to play since we will be providing transportation to and from our hotel.
