How many glasses do you need per person at a party?
 
The last thing you want to be doing at your own event is washing everyones glasses.  The obvious solution is to rent your glasses.  This ensures a uniform, organized look for your event but the real bonus is...we will clean them for you.
 
So now the question is... how many glasses do you need per person?
Generally, you should have 3-4 glasses per person. This allows for multiple drinks, and takes into account drinks get misplaced or forgotten.

If you are concerned about having enough glasses, when a guest comes for their second drink, politely ask "Did you have your glass for me to refill, or would you like a fresh glass". This gives them the option to request a fresh glass, while also making them aware that they do not need to have a fresh glass everytime, which can be standard at large sponsored parties.

A RULE OF THUMB
There is no definitive rule when it comes to how much wine, beer or spirits you need for a particular event; however, as a general rule, consider one drink per person per hour.

People tend to drink more at the beginning of an event, but consume less as the event goes on.

 
SOME WINE GUIDELINES FOR EVENTS
Consider two things when planning an event – trends and the type of event. Certain drinks gain more popularity over time and during different seasons, such as gin, beer and coolers in the summer, rum, brandy and liqueurs in the winter.

 

What’s even more important is the type of event you’re hosting:

HOW MUCH DO I NEED FOR…
EVENT
RECOMMENDATION
Lunch Two glasses per person = 1/3 a bottle.
Dinner Three glasses per person = 1/2 a bottle.
Wine & Cheese Party Three glasses per person = 1/2 a bottle – more if the party lasts longer than three hours.

DID YOU KNOW?

A drink is a drink is a drink. A mixed drink with 1.5 oz. of spirits contains the same amount of alcohol as 12 oz. of beer or 5 oz. of wine.

KEEP YOUR SPIRITS UP

Think three drinks per person for an evening where spirits are served. A 750 mL bottle yields 15 to 17 drinks. Remember, you need at least three similarly sized bottles of mix per bottle of spirit.
