How many bottles of wine do I need?
The wedding is in a week and almost everything is planned. There will only be 18 adults at the wedding and we want to serve white and red wines. There will be wine served about 1/2 hour before the ceremony along with cheese/crackers and vegetable trays. The meal will be about 1/2 hour after the ceremony. During the 4 hours or so after the meal, I plan on having wine still available for anyone who wants it.
The sites I looked up said 1/2 bottle per person. Is this enough? Do places like Costco let you return unopened bottles? We did not want to offer any beer and the wedding is not at a restaurant-type place so there is no bar available. TIA for any advice.
