I was looking at buying 4 or 5 reasonably priced (and by that I mean as cheap as possible lol) wine/champagne buckets with floor stands
I have no room on the dinner tables for a wine bucket so it has to have a stand
But unfortunately I am clueless! I have found a couple but in the photos it looks like there is only one bottle and I would need at least 3 bottles to fit inside each of the buckets
How big is a 4Lt bucket? How many bottles would fit inside?
Does any one have any other suggestions?

Most wine buckets are designed to hold 1-2 bottles of wine at the most. If you need more you might need to get creative. I would start by looking at flower pots and stands. They would need to be spray painted but you would be more likely to hold the amount of wine you want.
Another option would be to purchase magnums instead of regular bottles of wine. (If you haven’t heard of this its basically a bigger bottle- holds approximatly two bottles of wine.)That might fit in a regular stand and give you enough wine to serve a table.
I’m not a huge fan of wine buckets anyway. They tend to drip water allllll over the floor because of the condensation. Also white wine is meant to be “chilled” not ice cold. The restaurant I worked at would hold the wine in the cooler until right before the event. It actually made it colder then recommended for drinking, and then would place it on the table. It would warm up slightly but was still cold enough to drink, and you actually got a better flavor of wine because it wasn’t so cold.
