    If you know your guests and they don’t drink wine, then ditch it. But after reading your post I tried to think of any of my friends and family (basically my invite list) and I can only think of 1 person out of about 150 that would prefer hard liquor. For everyone else it’s beer and/or wine.

    I think you have a great selection of alcoholic drinks and I would be pleased.  Although I am a big fan of wine at weddings, your list has sufficient enough choice for most people to have something else.

    I am usually a wine drinker at weddings, but I would be fine (although disappointed) with beer and mixed drinks. I find it a little confusing that someone would want to have beer and mixed drinks but no wine, though. It can’t be for cost reasons, since mixed drinks are more expensive than wine. Are you only not serving it because you don’t like it?

    Even if you have wine, it’s hard to please everyone with the kinds you have so I think it’s ok not to have but you can get good inexpensive wine and just open as needed and possibly return or give someone the unopened.

    While I loved mixed drinks, the list you provided didn’t seem to interest me very much, besides the Amaretto. Amaretto sours..yum!

    I would just go for the wine, champagne, and beer. Maybe if you want hard liquor (or something mixed) have a signature drink? You will also have to have either a bartender, or friend manning the drink station too.

    As for what types of wines/beer to go with…yeah I’m pretty much no help. I enjoy Moscato/ dessert wines over red/white any day.
