I would consider having some wine as well (probably a red and a white).  I know a lot of people (myself included) who do not like beer.  Things like margaritas can be messy and time consuming to make.  I think wine is relatively easy.

I think Magenta’s idea is excellent. I know that I, personally, do not drink beer. I think that you should at least offer some wine. I love the idea of doing some other little mixed drinks (like the champagne punch, hard lemonade, etc. in that link) would be the best scenario.

What about a drink dispenser with something like vodka and cranberry juice? I also second the wine! Trader Joes has decent cheap wine.

I’m not a beer drinker at all, so I would be sober all night if I were one of your guests.  There are quite a few easy mixed drinks out there that just require a little pre-prep, like spiked punch or screwdrivers (vodka + orange juice).  Have you considered wine coolers like Smirnoff?

Ice in a bucket sounds good.  That’s how they serve mixed drinks in bars too – room temperature liquor poured over ice.  🙂

I agree with the wine comment. We are having beer and wine only at our wedding. Place the white wine in buckets of ice and people can help themselves and place the red on a table and again everyone helps themselves. No neet to mix or refill anything.

 

EDIT: I should really read things better- I just saw your comment about nobody being a wine drinker! Sorry!

Vodka with lemonade is amazing.. lemonade is pretty cheap.  There are large dispensers that you could premix the drink in, and people could serve themselves:

Also, Trader Joes has cheap wine.. 3.39 a bottle if you buy a case.

I say definitely wine- go to trader joes for sure. two buck chuck.  Or total wine or something else if you don’t have TJ’s in your state.  Everyone who doesnt like beer will be very greatful!

You can make ice out of the mixer in your vodka drink? Maybe? Or just regular ice and hope people drink from it early. 😉

At frat parties we always used to have a vodka drink in McDonalds (orange drink) drink dispensors.

Now, I know your wedding is not a frat party and I am NOT suggesting you go to McDonalds but I am sure that you can find some sort of drink container and mix in a 40oz bottle of vodka and a sh** ton of koolaid and you will be good to go!

Drink dispensers can be beautiful, and another, very affordable, option is a big old punch bowl. Most liquor drinkers won’t say no to a well-mixed concoction of fruit juices and spirits. Even better, you can use cheap liquor since the juice masks the taste. There are lots of ways to make an alcoholic punch fun, including pouring in some cheap “champagne” (i.e. $3 Andre from the grocery store) or freezing some pieces of fruit to toss in.
