I've found that those alcohol calculators go a bit crazy on the amount of alcohol you need. We had 150 people and followed one of those calculators. We bought almost twice what we ended up needing, but we bought it all from Costco so we were able to return our unused stuff. We bought cheaper wine, a couple different kinds of beer, no champagne, and we weren't allowed to have hard liquor so that saved us money. All in all, after returning unused stuff, we spent around $350 for alcohol for 150 people. Definitely buy from somewhere that you can return alcohol if you have a ton left over.
