how much beer and wine for a wedding reception is required per person?Georgia B
My partner and I are trying to budget for the alcohol, and aren't sure how many drinks we should be catering per person. The reception will be for 4 hours.
Big congratulations Georgia from us at Ghost Wines ??
It's always a tough call getting the quality and types of wine right. The worst thing you can do is not have enough or have cheap wine at a wedding or engagement party.
Some good retailers (like us) will give you a refund for your unused wine which takes the pressure off you as a planner.Here is a quote I have recently completed to give you an idea but I would find out what food would be served so we can match it with the right wines. You will obviously need a good sparkling which we have got the Ex Bird in Hand wine maker that makes a better quality sparkling and it will cost you about $5.00 less a bottle.
For 100 Guests
3 x 12 pack of Ghost Adelaide hills Sparkling = $630.00 15% off = $535.50 or $14.88 per bottle
3 x 12 pack of Ghost Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc = $444.00 15% off = $377.40 or $10.49 per bottle
3 x 12 pack of Ghosts Wines Pinot Gris = $444.00. 15% off = $377.44 or $10.49 per bottle
3 x 12 pack of Ghost Clare Valley Shiraz = $533.52 15% off = $453.50 or $12.31 per bottle
Total = $1743.80 or $17.44 per person.
This is more than you need but it's better to be safe than sorry so I would budget on $15- $16.50 per person
