    I’m not sure what white wine punch is, but if it’s less $ my guess is there is less alcohol in it..and more “punch” (whatever it is they’re putting with it, maybe ginger ale along with some other juice?)

    I’d prefer the red wine sangria.

    Sangria should have pieces of real fresh fruit in it and punch may or may not. Sangria is a type of punch, so I would ask your venue what the difference is. Sangria traditionally has brandy in it as well as wine, so that may up the cost over other punches. Also, depending on their recipies, the punch may have more non-alcoholic fillers, like seltzer, sprite, gingerale, etc.

    @princess_r:  I’m not sure what the difference is because sangria is essentially a wine punch.  The only difference I can think of is that sometimes, sangria will have a little brandy in it.  Perhaps ask the venue what the difference is?  I’d consider having something white wine based to reduce the severity of stains if someone spills.

    I’m most familiar with red wine sangria and mmm mmm mmm it’s good! (which is probably why they’re charging so much for it..)

    Sangria should be made with fresh fruit while punch will probably be made with fruit juice. I could be completely wrong though. With either option I would choose white but only because of the dress you’ll be wearing.

    I agree with other PPs, but call your venue and ask to be sure.  I would also go with the lighter-colored punch or sangria as well.  Yum!

    I was about to vote for white wine sangria and then i saw the price difference…go with the cheaper white wine punch option.  The only one who will even know that sangria was an option is you!
