Being equipped with a list of the alcoholic beverages that you plan on serving during your wedding reception will help you stock the bar that you will be using to serve your guests. Contact some local liquor shop owners and request information about on-site sampling sessions and delivery services to help you prepare for the upcoming event.
Your List Of Alcoholic Beverages
Alcohol can be broken down into many categories, including wines, spritzers, spirits, craft beers, domestic and imported beers, session beers, and champagne. You may be interested in offering several of these alcohol varieties during your reception.
A classic bottle of wine can be served during the meal that will be served during the reception. Spirits and many beer varieties can be offered before and after dinner. Champagne can be served during planned and impromptu toasts.
The proposed list of alcoholic products that you will be purchasing should reflect upon your guest list and the number of social activities that you will be featuring during the reception. It's likely that not everyone will imbibe alcohol during the festivities, but it is still a good idea to include everyone in the alcoholic beverage count.
This will ensure that you purchase enough booze for the reception. A liquor shop owner will need to know the quantities that you plan on purchasing. If they do not have enough alcohol on-site, they will need to contact their distributor and order the products that you have requested.
Samples And Deliveries
In many jurisdictions, sampling alcohol at a liquor shop is legal. A liquor shop owner may offer an on-site sampling session that they have planned in advance. This type of event may feature some select varieties of alcohol. A shop owner may also offer a private sampling session.
If you are able to receive approval for a tasting activity like this, you can furnish a shop owner with your proposed alcohol purchase list and request to sample the products that you are undecided on. A shop owner that is aware of the large quantity of products that you intend to purchase may be receptive to your request to test out some alcohol varieties.
If you will be completing most of the setup at the venue where your reception will be taking place, you may want to have all of the alcohol products delivered to this location. Research liquor shops within your area that offer a delivery service.
