When planning a wedding reception, there are many things to consider, including the wine selection. Although some people choose not to serve alcoholic beverages at their wedding, if you are planning to serve wine, you will need to choose varieties that the majority of the guests would appreciate. In most cases, the reception is a nice mixture of all ages and lifestyles. For this reason, you need to offer several wine options but still try to choose wines that are popular by the majority.

Depending on the time of day when the reception will occur will help determine how much to purchase. For instance, a morning or early afternoon wedding and reception will have much less alcohol consumed than if the event were being held at night. When it comes to the appropriate amount, a good guideline to follow is one drink per person, per hour. Therefore, if your reception is scheduled for three hours and you expect 100 people to attend, you could take into account that some of those people are under age or not wine drinkers. In this case, you could take 80 people times the number of hours being three and expect that you will need enough wine to serve 240 glasses.

To determine how many bottles of wine you would need to accommodate that number, consider the following guidelines:
  • Champagne One bottle will fill six glasses
  • Wine One bottle will fill five glasses
  • Liquor A one-liter bottle will make 18 drinks
When serving wine, you want to choose gentle merlot, some chardonnay, and zinfandel. An excellent year for wine was 1995, whether red or white. This year of wine is also affordable and can be found easily. If possible, purchase the wine in 1.5 liter bottles, which will give you more wine for the money.

Choosing wine can be a daunting responsibility but the information below will help you choose wines that taste great and fall within most brides and grooms budget:
