ALCOHOL =)

Ok so we are having an outdoor tent wedding, etc etc... and we are providing all the alcohol while the catering company provides the bar, bar tenders, etc...


So out catering head dude gave us a list of what we should get, and it seems so BASIC (ie. no tequilla, no mixers) just like a few types of alcohol. And he gave us a list for 100 people, and the list seems like I could drink it with a few friends over a weekend lol (aka not enough for a 200 person wedding)... I was wondering if anyone else was ever provided with one of these lists, or IF they know someone in the bar business who can recommend how much of WHAT to get (keeping in mind I do have a big drinking crowd)...


Let me know if you can help me out =)

Try out this guy: http://www.evite.com/pages/party/drink-calculator.jsp


roughly 25 ounces of liquor is equal to 17 drinks


Plus, many liquor stores will let you return unopened bottles (check with them first though)

We just bought all are own drinks for our wedding too!  Actually my FIL did which saved me A LOT of stress.  We tried to narrow down to what people drink the most of which helped since we know our crowd pretty well.  I also wanted to buy more then enough b/c you can return it if ou get it at BevMo etc. HTH!


- HMM :)
