Reception Drinks for Wedding
A reasonable average to have is about half a bottle of wine per head. If you are catering for your wedding yourself, then it would be a good idea to order drinks on a sale-or-return basis. Champagne is the traditional wedding-party drink however this can be expensive so do remember that there are other sparkling wines to choose from, and some alternatives include sherry, Pimm’s or wine. For the toasts it is traditional to have champagne.
If a meal is served the choice of wines depends on what is on the menu. Remember to provide soft drinks for children and other non-alcoholic drinks for those adults who choose not to drink. Also tea and coffee is always welcomed and it is a good idea to provide one or two drinks on the house and have a cash bar for additional drinks.
