Hello Fellow Knotties!
I'm fairly new to the boards so please forgive me because I'm sure this topic was already posted. I wasn't sure how to search the posts!
My fiance and I have decided on a bar with 3 beers, a selection of wines & 2 signature cocktails rather than a full bar.
We have 50 adults attending the wedding & reception and of course, not everyone drinks alcohol. My caterer charges by consumption and I'm trying to estimate how much alcohol I should actually plan on paying for when all is said and done. I know how much my caterer is charging per drink I just don't really know how many drinks I can safely estimate paying for, and I'd like to try and come up with a ballpark figure if I can.
Right now I'm estimating the following figures and I'm looking for advice/guidance as to whether I'm on track or way off base.
My Estimates - (50 adults)
Beer $4/person = 75 beers?
Wine $16/bottle = 15-20 bottles?
Signature cocktails $7/person = 50 cocktails?
Does this seem like too high or too low of an estimate? I would love your opinion, I just don't want to have major "sticker shock" when I get the bar tab!!
