This is a list that should please everyone on your guest list. If you already have an idea of the favorites your guests have and some of these don't quite cut it, then adjust your list and don’t waist money on alcohol you don’t need.
One more important thing, if you are holding a reception at home you cannot have a cash bar. To sell alcohol you have to have a liquor license it is against the law to sell liquor to your guest with-out
Figuring out how much you will need
The last thing you will need on your wedding day is to run out of drinks. You can estimate the amount you will need to buy by calculating this way.

To start with each of your guests will probably consume about 4-5 drinks in the duration of the evening. With each drink holding about one-ounce of liquor per glass, a bottle should give you about 25 mixed drinks. One case of liquor contains 12 Bottles and if each bottle will provide you with 25 drinks you will get about 300 drinks from one case of liquor.

You can choose to order a half keg of beer which will give you about 260 eight ounce glasses of beer. If you decide to serve bottles or cans of beer estimate seven cases per half keg of beer. It will all depend on your crowd, if the majority of your guests are beer drinkers it may be wiser to go with the keg.

Depending on your guests, some may be heavy wine drinkers and so this tip may help you determine how many bottles you should have on hand. Heavy wine drinkers can often consume one whole bottle of wine all by themselves. With this in mind think of your family and or friends. Consider who and how many people will be present and whom can drink a whole bottle to themselves.

Your guests can get intoxicated very easily over the enjoyment of laughter and company of others. Be sure to keep your eye on those overdoing it and watch that they don’t drive home alone. Prepare to arrange a drive home for those who may need it.

Some ways to keep your guests safe-
Salty foods can make you thirsty and so cause people to drink a lot. If possible avoid salty menu items. The intake of meats and high protein foods are necessary when consuming alcohol , alcohol depletes the blood sugar level in our bodies. The use of coffee may wake someone up but it does not sober them up, so if you are trying to sober up an intoxicated guest consider flushing their system out with lots of water.
