Stocking Your Bar for Your Wedding
Many couples ask, “How much alcohol do I need for my wedding?” If you are providing alcohol for your own wedding, this questions plagues and scares you not knowing how much alcohol to purchase. If your venue provides your alcohol, this guide will help you gauge how much alcohol you may use.
These are some great starting points for your bar. We are estimating one drink per person, per hour. Dependent upon your preferences, or that of your guests, you may have to increase or decrease some bottles. This is especially the case if you are having a signature drink that uses one or more of the spirits listed. For each bottle of spirits, you need three containers of mixers — club soda, tonic, juice, etc. Warm weather outdoor weddings call for more clear liquors (for vodka gimlets and gin and tonics). Martinis are popular for cocktail parties and wine makes a perfect accompaniment to multi-course plated meals.
