Wedding Costs: How Much to Spend on Non-Alcoholic Beverages?

How many drinks should you include in your budget for a non-alcoholic wedding?

(page 2 of 2)

The Wedding Guru says: If you’re serving only non-alcoholic drinks at the reception, count on three per guest (for both adults and children). You always want to err on the safe side. Unopened bottles can usually be returned (but to make sure, you should check in advance at the store where you buy your drinks). Also remember to stock up on lots of ice; have at least one pound of ice per person for serving in drinks and to keep beverages cold. If the weather is hot or the party is active, definitely order more. Keep in mind that this is not a scientific answer, just a research-based estimate. Most of all, remember to have fun!
