We've been buying up our wedding booze over the last 6wks and we think we might be there or thereabouts. I'd love some opinions to make sure I'm not too light anywhere though, if anyone has the patience to read through my list!
My guestlist is around 100, give or take, and the dinner/reception will be from 5ish till 1am. The 'cocktail hour' is on a boat and will be a consumption bar, so not part of what we need to buy in advance. We have bartenders, so spirits will be in proper measures not freepour.
My crowd are part scottish, part northern english, part Irish. Drinking is in their blood. I cannot run out. Most people will drink wine/lager/ale by my reckoning,
so I've planned accordingly.
Cabernet Sauvingnon - 18 bottles
Montepulciano - 42 bottles
Sauvingon blanc - 54 bottles
Pinot grigio - 42 bottles
Prosecco - 60 bottles
Kronenberg - 144 cans (50cl).
Guinness - 24 cans (only my brother specifically asked for this but others might partake)
Ale - FI still to order as he is being v. choosy.
Bacardi - 2 litres (only know a handful of ppl that will drink this).
Gin - 6 litres
Vodka - 6 litres
FI loves whiskey and wants to do a 'whiskey bar' later in the evening, but I want to make sure we are properly prepared for the main bar before we even think about fun things on top.
Tonic - 24litres
Soda water - 18litres
Coke/diet coke/irn bru/lemonade - 40 litres approx.
Orange juice - 15litres
Of course water/tea/coffee is also readily available and unlimited.
Some parent approved juice drinks for the 4 kids in attendance.
