The usual choices are Pimms or Champagne for the reception party before dinner, wine with the meal and the beer, spirits and wine afterwards.
A good guideline for typical quantities is two glasses per guest for the reception drinks and then two or three glasses of wine during the meal.
It’s always good to let your catering company or restaurant know how many guests will be drinking on your special day.
These day, open tab seems to be the most popular, cost effective and easy option for everyone. Don’t forget to make bubbly available for the toasts!
You also need to remember to walk around the tables between the meals, so your photographer can photograph “the table shots” with all your guests.
