Planning to stock the bar yourselves? First, check to see if your venue charges a corkage fee, so you can incorporate that cost into your total alcohol budget. Then, download this helpful list that includes everything you’ll need to set up a full bar for a four-hour evening reception for 100 guests. Estimate that the crowd will consume one drink per person per hour, or about five drinks over the course of the evening. Some will drink less, obviously—but some may drink more.
