SOFT DRINKS!! Maybe I’m not hardcore enough but after an open bar I wouldn’t want to even look at more alcohol. Cheaper for you too!! The majority of your guests will be hungover, plus being a Sunday I imagine they’ll be driving too?? Back to where they’ve come from. I would supply a mix of nice soft drinks.

We all know the Brits will want booze – they’re on holiday lol.

id get some wine and perhaps some sangria. 

Def get some soft drink for the lightweights but by lunch time they will be ready for some hair of the dog.

I wouldn’t be drinking the day after. Despite being a Brit who “wants booze on holiday” we’re not all like that. So Soft drinks would suit me fine. Maybe make up some mocktails? So it feels a bit more grown up id you think soft drinks might not have the right feel for the occasion. There are people who will expect alcohol so just get some wine in for them.

I think lost people will be absolutely fine to have a drink or two after. I would have soft drinks anyway just because there should always be non alcoholic options but I would buy beer and wine and maybe some sangria. You won’t need as much for the Sunday as for a typical event as it is in the afternoon, maybe only 2/3 drinks per person.

Different types of flavoured and non flavoured sparkling water, few soft drinks, beer, sangria and wine. The alcohol is optional for lunch in my opinion but nice to have. But they also lasts a long time if they are  not drank.

SPICY Caesars!!! 


The Brits will want beer and white wine. You should also include non-alcoholic drinks like orange juice and sparkling water.

worriedbeehere11 :  hair of the dog..

Wine and stuff for sangria?! And some beers..?

and some softies..

ETA: just saw your update. Not sure if that the best way to work out the quantities.. like I would be unlikely to have one or two of each type of drink.. more likely just stick to one – but I also don’t really know how to actually work it out..

Just get loads? Could you return any extra, or sell it on to a venue or something? Worth checking out..
