Liquor- How many bottles to purchase


Recommended Posts

I know most of you are having your wedding at an AI and don't need to worry about this. But for those who are not and are opting instead for a corkage fee, I have a few questions for you:

 

How many guests are you having?

What kind of liquor are you getting?

How many bottles (of each kind) are you purchasing?

 

We are thinking of having a signature drink during the cocktail hour. Most likely margaritas, since i have a great contact for tequila in Mexico. (my cousin has a good friend who makes it!)

 

Any other ideas?

Amy either pick a wine (red or white) or go for champagne to toast and stuff. Then I would get basic things for drinks such as Captain Morgans,vodka, tequila, etc. My absolute favorite drink is a Miami Vice which is basically a strawberry margarita mixed with pina colada.

I wouldn't do brandy b/c I don't think most people would drink that. Unless you know that your guests are very big brandy drinkers. Also try to figure out if your female guests like frozen drinks or if most will prefer regular mixed cocktails. If you think they will stick to frozen drinks then just get enough stuff to make margaritas for them all night. Otherwise I would get the malibu so some girls can drink Malibu Baybreezes or just Baybreezes.

 

I think most people will be happy to be in Mexico and will want frozen drinks or beers. You will def need vodka, rum and tequila though.

I am not sure how much this will help you. We did regular open bar, but did bring down all of the wine for our wedding. we bought 3 cases for the wedding for 130ish guests and they were just about gone by the end of the night.

 

Can I ask why you don't want to just do open bar? it seems like such a hassle to buy booze for everyone. We only brought wine because its super pricey for good California wines in Cabo, and we got a great deal from a winery that we had a membership to.

Hi Natasha,

The open bar option is too much $$$. Its about $11 per person, per hour + 30% tax/tip (@150+ guests). We thought the corkage fee was a better deal. And like Iâ€ve mentioned, my cousin (in Mexico) has a good friend who makes and bottles tequila so weâ€ll get a good deal from them.
