Wine Order for Wedding
Is there a convenient rule of thumb for how much wine to order for 100 guests (around 30 of which won't really be drinking)? We're having the wedding at a winery, and have to purchase the wine beforehand - and unlike some wineries, they will not buy back the wine if there are bottles left over. But they WILL pull off the shelves if we order too little. We are not having hard liquor, but will be serving beer if guests want beer.
I don't think we mind if there is a case left behind, because we'll just give it away, but if there is more than that, we'll have problems (we don't live in the area and cannot transport them back easily).
