ALWAYS cover enough water for everyone, water is too important to have in case someone has one too many or doesn’t feel well or gets too hot dancing it up. As a former event manager our go to rule was 2 drinks per person per hour. You could also be more conservative and do 2 drinks for the first hour and 1 drink each hour after that. It should easily apply to your breakdowns! Good luck.

We’re buying our own liquor & our caterer is supplying the bartenders.  This is the advice he gave us for 150 guests – and he said the only time he’s had a wedding run out of booze was when they didn’t follow his list!  This should accommodate guests for 5 hours, and of course if you know your friends/family drink more of one type but less of the other you should adjust accordingly.  Sorry for the long post – good luck!!!


LIQUOR RECOMMENDATION FOR BEER AND WINE ONLY: 

Based on 150 Guests:

Beer: 4 case of domestic regular, 4 cases of light Beer, 4 cases of imported of some sort.

(24 beers in a case)

For wine: 4 cases of white and 4 cases of red are probably enough

2 Cases of Champagne for Toast ONLY (150-168 Pours)

Or 4 Cases of Champagne for Toast and at the Bar (336 Glasses)

 

LIQUOR RECOMMENDATION FOR FULL BAR ONLY:

Based on 150 Guests:

3 Half Gallons of Vodka (120 Pour)

1 Half Gallons of Gin (40 Pour)

2 Half Gallon of Bourbon (80 Pour)

1 Half Gallon of Rum (40 Pour)

2 Half Gallon of Tequila (80 Pour)

1 Bottle Of Brandy (40 Pour)
