If you use bottles, I'd suggest making sure that they can be easily 
One of the feasts that I helped with a few years back had decorated 
glass bottles
of varying sizes. Some refilled easily; others didn't fit under the 
faucets or filled
very slowly due to narrow necks. Pretty but impractical for a long feast 
with a
number of tables. Also a number of them didn't hold more than just a 
pint of water
which meant one couldn't refill a table from one bottle.
 It was a drawback that the head cook hadn't anticipated when she 
counted out  and
did one bottle per table. BYOB had been discouraged since it was a 
school, so most people
needed drinks.
