    I voted sparkling wine. While I would drink rum punch I think it is not as universal (for example FI can’t drink rum, it makes him sick). Plus I love anything sparkling.

    @lexie0013:  As someone who is from a wine region and loves to vacation in the Carribean, this was the hardest choice I’ve made all day!

    I think I would go wine for a wedding, rum punch for every other social gathering!

     I think sparkling wine sounds elegent and rum punch sounds like a college party. Don’t get me wrong, I love rum and drinks like this but if I only had one choice I definitely would choose something more classic.

    I think it’s safer to go with the wine. I’m personally not a fan of most wines but rum is one spirit that I really dislike:(

    What about a vodka based punch its not as strong a flavour and most people especially me LOVE vodka:))))))))

    @lexie0013:  sparkling wine seems more “wedding-y”. But I suppose it depends on the vibe of your wedding!

    @Holly77:  See, now I hate vodka. It’s hard to please everyone!

    OP, Could you maybe do some of each so people have a choice?

    I’m not a wine fan, but punch is always great!

    I voted rum punch. I would like the sparking wine if it were say, in the form of sangria, or a mimosa. But on it’s own, champaigns and their sparkling white wine ilk always remind me of the aftertaste left in my mouth after vomiting. They don’t TASTE like vomit. But it’s that “bile kind of went up in my sinus cavity a bit and now I hate life and I think I need mouthwash to make it stop” feeling.

    Might just be me though.
