Sip, Sip, Hooray! The Alcohol Chart


When planning a wedding, figuring out how much alcohol to purchase is very difficult and confusing! While there are many "Alcohol Calculators" out there, there are so many factors that go into the amount of alcohol you need that they don't seem realistic.


We have created an easy to use alcohol chart to make purchasing alcohol for your event easier and potentially save you money and waste. Our chart is specifically based off of Vista Cielo Rosa's past events and usage but please consider your own events time of day, season, reception timeline, guests, and overall wedding style. As a reminder, please tip your bar staff!


Below is Vista Cielo Rosa's Alcohol Chart. Of course, you are not required to follow these guidelines and they are accurate only MOST OF THE TIME, not always. Vista Cielo Rosa does not make any guarantees regarding alcohol consumption and is not held responsible if there is left over alcohol or if alcohol runs out.


Please keep in mind Vista Cielo Rosa's alcohol policy allows any quantity and any combination of beer and wine (including champagne and seltzers), and only one option for a Signature Cocktail.
