Wedding, Christening, Birthday, Engagement, Charity event or a Corporate dinner the most important thing is to stock the bar. It's what gets the party started.
HOW MANY ARE COMING?
Probably the most thing important that you need to find out. It's a very tricky thing. If you stock the bar for 50 guests but actually 100 are invited then then you will quickly run out. Equally the reverse is important. If you stock for 100 and only 50 turn up then you have not only wasted money transporting stock but you will also have the hassle of returning it all (if you can).
TYPE OF EVENT
The type of event has a massive effect on not only how much but also what type of products should be on the bar. If its a corporate lunch time event much more soft drinks will be consumed. At a Wedding prepare for a full bar service.
TIMING IS EVERYTHING
People drink differently at different times. Also it goes without saying if like a wedding the event starts at 13.00 then the guests will be drinking for much longer. At events like this people normally switch to spirits for the late drinks.
This has a massive effect. If it's mostly children at the party then there is very little point ordering three kegs of lager.
