After a smaller, intimate ceremony in March, my husband and I will FINALLYYYY get to have our reception with family and friends coming up in March of 2022. We live in New Jersey and booked an amazing caterer and we had the option for them to supply the alcohol or for us to bring it. We decided that we were going to provide the alcohol (caterer will bring the juices, sodas, mixers, etc.), and we are thinking of going to Costco or Trader Joe's since anything unopened can be returned.
We have about 130 people on our guest list - so we know that number might change when people RSVP, but for those brides who went this route too, how did you determine how much to purchase? How did you plan out exactly how much of what you got (wine, beer, liquor, etc.)
