Buying liquor in bulk for your wedding
There are a lot of details to consider when planning a wedding. From decorations to food, planning an unforgettable wedding is a lengthy process. One thing you should consider when planning a wedding is if you’re going to work with an in-house catering team or if you’ll be in charge of suppling the alcohol for your guests. It might seem like an overwhelming task to buy liquor in bulk for a wedding, but we’ve got you covered with some helpful information, and some great deals on bulk beer, wine, and liquor for weddings.
Things to consider when buying bulk alcohol for your wedding:
Decide what type of alcohol you’ll be serving
We all know there are endless options when it comes to alcohol, but by narrowing it down from the start, you’ll be saving yourself a lot of headache. Will you be offering a full bar with beer, wine, and hard liquor? Or maybe creating a fun signature cocktail for your guests? Are you planning for everyone to be able to join in with a champagne toast? Consider which type of alcohol would be most suitable for your wedding and for your guests.

Estimate how much will everyone drink
The next thing you’ll need to do is calculate how much alcohol to buy for your wedding. An average wedding guest will drink about two alcoholic drinks per hour. One drink equals out to one 5 ounce glass of wine, one bottle of beer, or one mixed drink made with 1.5-2 ounces of liquor. To calculate how much alcohol you’ll need for your wedding, multiply the number of guests by how many drinks you think they’ll each have per hour, and then multiply that by the number of hours your wedding reception is. For example, if you have 100 guests coming and you think they’ll each have two drinks each per hour, and your reception is five hours long, then you’ll need to supply enough alcohol for 1,000 drinks.
Decide how much of each type of alcohol to buy for your wedding
You should know your guests pretty well, so you’ll know best which type of alcohol to buy in bulk, and which you can buy less of. For example, if you know the groomsmen love Old Fashioneds then make sure to get plenty of bourbon.
If you know your moms family only drinks red wine, then double up on the red and get less of the white. If you want to buy wine in bulk for your wedding, contact Juicefly to get unbeatable deals!
Details to keep in mind:
When planning a wedding, you have a million and one things going on in your mind so it’s easy to overlook small details like, how you’re going to transport all the alcohol. Make sure you have a plan for how to get all of the alcohol to your wedding venue. Ask friends and family for help in advance so you’re not left in a pickle the day of the wedding.
A lot of liquor goes to waste at weddings. Guests are busy dancing and bouncing around from table to table, so it’s easy for them to forget where they left their drink and order a new one before finishing the last. It might be a good idea to order a bit more alcohol than you calculated for just to ensure that you don’t run out before the end of the night.
Many people don’t care what they’re toasting with. If you have a vision that all your guests will raise their champagne glass in unison as a toast to the new couple, then go for it. However, most wedding guests don’t actually care if they’re toasting with champagne or with whatever they’re already drinking.
