We used Frank's Wine for the alcohol for our wedding. We ordered cases of bottled beer, 3 different kinds of wine, and the ingredients to make Manhattans (we had a limited bar). Frank really did it all. I contacted him about 6 months before the wedding and he told me that it was a really easy process and to get back in touch with him about a month before. I told him how many guests, what kind of beer I wanted and I told him to just pick out a white, red, and rose wine. He sent me a contract with the booze and the prices. It actually didn't seem like enough, but he assured me that it would be enough and that he had already added a little extra just in case. Being nervous that we would run out, I asked him to add 4 more cases of beer. We absolutely did not need it. He really nailed the number. Frank will give you the information for a courier service to deliver the alcohol to your venue which was awesome. It cost us about $185 for that service, but it was well worth it. He will also buy back your left over alcohol. We had about 4 cases of beer left and one case of wine, which we decided to keep, so I did not use the buy back service. Ordering the alcohol from Frank was one of the smoothest and easiest parts of the entire wedding process. I would recommend him!

Frank's came highly recommended by our wedding venue, Terrain, and my husband and I had a great experience working with them. The tasting was really informative and the staff didn't try to upsell us or talk us into buying more than we needed. Frank provided a fast quote and was amenable to whatever changes we wanted to make. Best of all, they arranged delivery and buy back any unopened cases or bottles, which made the purchase process super easy!

I am giving zero stars to this vendor. We selected them because they were actually an approved vendor from the venue at the time. It think there were enough complaints though that they are no longer on the vendor list. I want to warn all brides to run from Frank's Wines. First, I had a meeting with Frank. To our horror he had a staff person there and never showed up to the meeting. We still have never met Frank in person. The staff also seemed unprepared for our arrival, did not seem to even know of our appointment. Next, they asked for a deposit and we told the staff person that was helping us that we did not know the final count yet and it would be about a month till we got all the rsvp's back. They promised to wait to process our entire order until we called with the final count. Our card was unfortunately charged not for just the deposit but for the entire amount that night for 50 more guests than we actually ended up needing. When we received our order receipt we noticed a huge error that would have been a nightmare the day of the wedding if we didn't read the order line by line very carefully. We assumed if we asked for something and specifically said it was for our signature drink that it would be in the order. We were wrong, his excuse was well no one drinks that in the winter. Seriously? You are now making important wedding decisions for us? Now he also owes us another credit to switch the order. Next, after the wedding we returned the surplus he said we needed for our guest count but he was way off so that is the third refund he owed us. Everytime we inquired about these 3 credits we were owed he told us they were processing them for us but we never saw the credits on our bank statement. Finally fed up with his lackadaisical attitude our only solution was to file BBB complaint. Remarkably, our refund was processed immediately. But what a nightmare! Run and run fast! There are so many other exceptional vendors out there.
