Default HELP!!! I need juice

I am getting married in June of next year and I am planning on making some pear cider for the wedding but I am having a hard time finding somewhere to get a large amount of good pear juice. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Woody

Akins type stores. Pear Nectar 32 Ounces for around $3.00.

Or you could just juice your own pears.

Hey...That's going to cost more than the Honey Moon!
Could you do an Apfelwein type wine and then add a bucket load of diced pears and secondary for a few weeks then rack, bulk age till clear, then bottle?
Maybe a little Pear Extract at bottle time too.

I would go with BigKahuna's idea... pear juice is expensive!

You think pear juice is expensive? Just wait until after the wedding...reality's just waiting to slap you in the face...

hahah, you've got some time to get things together. but your original post has this "holy s#it, i procrastinated and now i'm getting married in a month and a i need a beer/cider" kind of attitude. which REALLY cracks me up.

Thanks for the words of wisdom, I have found pear juice but it is unbelievably expensive. About $9 for 32oz and I need enough for about 200 people. I think I am going to have to do some more research and take some of the advise given and see what I come up with.
Thanks again,
Woody

This will be enough make 3 gallons and add 2 more gallons of cider to make a total of 5 gallons.
