Leslie at Gordon's was fabulous. She broke down the cost of all of the different elements that we wanted so that we knew how we could keep our order within budget. The final invoice even came in under budget! Our guests were very happy with our selections, several of which Leslie recommended when I wasn't sure which brand of wine we wanted.

It also couldn't have been easier! They arranged all of the drop off and pick up with the location's event coordinator. It was a little hard to get in touch with them initially because they were so busy, but once we initially spoke, they were really good about getting back to us. We scheduled a time to discuss the final order and Leslie called me directly at that time, which was a good thing because it had completely slipped my mind!

All in all, an excellent experience. I highly recommend working with Gordon's or another consignment store. It's wonderful not to have to worry about ordering too much or too little. They take whatever is unopened back with them, and you don't get charged for what you don't use. They even calculated in the bottles that got returned and subtracted the amount from our bill, which I thought was a very honest and considerate detail.

We decided to use Gordon's on the referral of our venue coordinator and our caterer, and we really couldn't have been much happier unless we had to do nothing at all (i.e., a venue with a bar would have been the only easier option). We knew that we only wanted to offer beer, wine and a few signature cocktails rather than a full bar. Our signature drinks were based on mixers made by the caterer, and we knew what we wanted to offer for beer, but I was pretty clueless about what to offer for wines. Leslie was great and made wonderful suggestions to pair with our food choices. I attended a wine and beer tasting at Gordon's prior to the wedding with a friend of mine, which was really fun. I ended up making some changes pretty last minute (i.e., offering 3 reds and 3 whites rather than 2 of each, adding a rosé, upgrading the liquor for the signature drinks to top shelf, and adding an additional specialty cocktail!), and it posed no problem at all for Leslie. She was pleasant and professional and accommodated our requests at every turn. Highly recommended!!!

We had no trouble with any of our beverages, thanks to Gordon's. We only offered beer, wine, and soft drinks, and we already knew which beers we wanted at the bar. Rick Gordon met with us a few months before the wedding, and he suggested several wines that worked with our budget. We chose from among his recommendations and later made one alteration to the list. Everything we requested was supplied correctly and in adequate quantities. Getting the final invoice with the breakdown of all beverages consumed during the 5-hour reception was fascinating! We added a rose wine on Mr. Gordon's suggestion, and it was the second most popular wine of the evening--we would never have thought to include it on our own!

In general, the store estimated the quantities very well. Nothing extra needed to be brought to the venue during the reception, and not a lot was returned at the end of the night. We appreciated knowing that any unopened bottles would be returned to the store at no cost to us, and the final bill was surprisingly small.

We used Gordon's Wine and Liquors for beverage catering. We met with Leslie a few weeks before the wedding, and she was all business, which was fine with me. She went through all the options, as well as a few suggestions for each, like which white wine and red wine would be good at each price point, etc. as she filled out our order form. My father in law specified that he wanted a different kind of whiskey (Seagrams VO, rather than Crown Royal), and that was really the only thing that was important to him. Also, we were assured that they would send far more than enough alcohol, since it's a consumption service, and they come back to pick up whatever you don't use.

Now on the day of the wedding, halfway through dinner, I go outside to greet some guests, and I see my new husband on the phone, and wonder who could he possibly be on the phone with at his own wedding? Well, it was Gordon's, because we had run out of beer. After only TWO hours of a FIVE hour wedding. And the bartender said that we were definitely not drinking any more than average. Fortunately, my husband caught the manager before he left, and he sent over more beer, but it was warm (to an already in process event?) and they didn't even apologize or offer to give us a discount or anything. On top of that, they brought Crown Royal, instead of VO, which we had been very specific about asking for. In the end, they charged us for the VO instead of the Crown Royal, but personally I was much more upset about the fact that they assured us that they'd bring more than enough alcohol, and they only brought enough for two hours.

In the end, the amount of money we saved by bringing our our alcohol is probably worth the grief, but if I had to do it again, I'd probably shop around to other liquor stores. We only chose Gordon's because they have a key to the store room at our venue.
