We are doing a toonie bar.

We have 130 guests.

How much beer/liquor would you buy?

    Have you checked out any liquor planner/calculators? We’re using this one from Costco. There’s different ones online too. How long is your party? We’re also doing a toonie bar with wine on the tables. We’re going to give our guests some drinks on us after the ceremony so we would add that on top of what the planner says. Our friends and family like to have a good time so I think we’ll buy extra and just return anything that’s unopened.

    Okay well I’ve heard that 2 bottles per table is normal for the night, then you can factor 2-3 drinks per person and go from there depending on what you choose to purchase.

    Good luck!

    The lcbo website has a calculator to give you an idea how much to get. Remember you can always return any unopened alcohol !

    We are having an open bar, we are also trying to figure out the amount to get. The more the better, at least the chance if running out is less and if there is any left over you can take it or split it with the wedding party.

    That's a good question! They say the rule of thumb is 2 drinks per guest per hour (can't remember where I heard that). Everyone won't be drinking as well, so you will have a bit of wiggle room too. You could always purchase extra just in case, then return it if you have leftovers! Are you doing table wine or just the toonie bar?
