    I echo PPs on adding a white wine that isn’t super sweet.  You may want to consider your food choices and the time of year for your wedding of whether to go for a chardonnay or sauvignon blanc, as one might pair better with the lighter food options than another.  Also agreed on the rum as an interesting choice, not tequila, for example, but perhaps you know your crowd?  I also understand why you listed mailbu rum specifically, as there are many different types of rum.  Hopefully the suggestions are helpful!

    Maybe do liquor as 

    Malibu

    Vodka (or the brand)

    Whiskey (or the brand)

    Captain

     

    most folks would get it, because its how you’d order, aka captain and coke, smirnoff and tonic etc

    soontobehisbride:  Oooooo so you’re not trying to say “Malibu Rum”, you’re saying “Malibu” and “Rum.” That makes way more sense! I would just flip the order around a bit so Malibu and Rum are not next to each other. Problem solved!

    You don’t have any real beer.

    soontobehisbride:  If you’re looking to save space in order to add tonic, you could probably scratch the pineapple juice. I agree that it’s a great mixer, but I think having something not sweet will round it out better.

    soontobehisbride:  Ahhh, I see. To avoid confusion, I would just do all of the liquors by brand name, then. Example:

    Absolut

    Jack Daniel’s

    Malibu

    Cptn. Morgan

    I think Pinot Noir is okay for red, but I’d definitely change the white! Even people who like Moscato probably won’t want to drink it all night long or with dinner. More of a “dessert” wine, IMO. You could always go with a semi-dry Riesling which is still on the sweeter side of the spectrum but not quite as much as Moscato.

    soontobehisbride:  I would keep the sprite. Coke, diet coke, cranberry, sprite, and tonic are all really staples for a bar. Unless you’re hoping to make a special drink with the pineapple, people may be disappointed if the above were not there.

    soontobehisbride:  I would offer something local as well, so you have an option for beer drinkers not from your family…unless you’re sure no one else would want beer.  

    Really, thought, don’t stress too much…you have a ton of options.

    soontobehisbride:  I think most of the ladies covered my thoughts on what to do/add. I just love the window! I am looking for some myself right now to use indoors for my new home! 🙂
