alcohol and reception
Wanted some advice. we are holding our reception in a marquee in a field and we are hiring a massive trailer fridge.
I have 120 day guests and an extra 60 in the evening (no children)
I wanted to supply champers on arrival and for toasting. We were also going to try and supply as much wine, beer and soft drinks as possible, but obviously without bar facilities, this is hard to predict and I worry about running out!
I have two questions -
1. has anyone experience of doing this, if so, how much should I be looking at supplying?
2. Also, someone suggested that on the invite i put a little poem or something about bringing a bottle? What do people think of this? If we were having it at another venue we would not have been able to have a free bar anyway, so it's not too different to buying your own drinks right?
Help would be appreciated... I am worrying!
