FI and I have a tasting today with our local wine shop to chose our wedding wine and also drinks for our casual rehearsal BBQ. I would love some additional input on what you ladies would like to drink with BBQ.
I first thought of just ordering extra of the wedding wine to serve at the BBQ but FI wants to 'keep it special' and serve something different than the wedding day which I totally get.
Our menu for the BBQ is pork and leek sausages, burgers, cajun chicken legs, lemon and garlic shrimp, veg kebabs with and without hallumi cheese, corn on the cob, baked potatoes with toppings, caesar salad, greek salad, garden salad, potato salad, coleslaw and 2 desserts.
Basically we do not want to run out of the correct drinks as the venue is 20 minutes drive to the nearest shop! Was thinking DUIs do not make a great pre-wedding event!!
How much would you order for this menu and what split? We want to offer beer, (what sort?) red, white and rose wine and mixed bottled soft drinks and bottled water. Although we are serving red meat I was thinking that perhaps white and rose would be more popular due to the nature of the event?
The BBQ will be mid afternoon in the middle of summer (in Scotland so we have a weather plan B lol!) we are inviting 40 guests, and the caterers will be there for 2 hours.
Thanks in advance for any advice. Would particularly like to hear from people who have hosted a mid afternoon BBQ. Xxx
