Need advice for some inexpensive wedding wine and bubblies!

cristenen | May 2, 2011 04:34 PM

I just proposed to my GF of many many years and with luck have it, she said YES!

We have set our date, which is roughly about 18 months away. We already pretty much have our venue, caterer and all the good stuff planned out.

What I really need help is some advice for some good ole cheap wine. At the pace we are going, we will blow by our budget pretty soon. I'd like to keep wines and the sparkling under $15. It won't hurt to be under $10, but I don't want it to taste cheap and rancid...

I will have access to anything within the SF, South Bay and wine country. I wouldn't mind any recommendations that I can pick up at K&L since it is really close by. Nothing online since I don't want to incur any freight cost.

The wedding will have about 200 guest. The food will be the standard salad and the entree will have an Asian theme (chicken/steak/vegetarian). I'm not sure about the hors d'oeuvres but it doesn't really matter since we also have an open bar during cocktail hour.

Wedding will take place late August or early September if it plays into anything.

Thanks in advance for any of your input!
