Best luck.  We looked into this and the hardest part for us was figuring out how we would rent/purchase all the stemware (glasses, etc).  We ended up going with a venue that included the bartending and they just used 8 oz plastic cups, wine glasses that we provided ($8 from Bed Bath and Beyond is the best price anywhere), and bottled beer.

I can get you pretty close with alittle more information.  Are there any specific alcohols that you know people will drink (ei. Myers rum, UV Blue) or any they will not prob drink (ei. Gin).  Once I put all this into my equation I came up with my cost.  And, are you serving keg beer or bottles.  How big of wine drinkers are your guests and what level of wine would you like to serve?

I do this all the time for large functions, if you would like to PM me I can help you figure out exactly what to order.  Some liquor stores will give you a great discount if you order all at one time from them, but I saved alot by getting alot directly from the distributors (through my bar) but was sometimes cheaper at the grocery stores sales.
