@SugarFoot: I have a similar situation and honestly every time I have gone to a small party lately and spirits and mixers have been available everyone has gone for beer/wine. This has made me feel justified in just getting beer and wine.

We are doing beer and wine. The venue is also a restaraunt so there is a full bar if need be. The coordinator said to us to figure in an approx of 30 dollars or 3 drinks for every person.  I’m pretty sure that’s their minimum anyway.

I had the same # of guests and I only provided wine and champagne for our toast.  Over half of my guests did not drink.   Since I paid based on the bottles consumed, we drank 6 bottles.  Guests who wanted something harder, ordered directly from the bar.   Honestly, I would offer beer and wine.

I had the exact same size wedding.  We had a case of red wine, a case of white, and maybe three or four cases of beer.  The beer was all but finished, but we had a lot of wine left over.  We also did a signature cocktail (called ‘Raspberry Beer’ by Sunset Magazine, oooor ‘Pink Panty Droppers’ by anyone who’s been to a frat party).  This was really popular, I think almost everyone had some, and we went through I think 3-4 gallons.

I wouldn’t do liquor and mixers personally.  We opted against it due to the small size of our wedding, and once you provide a variety of liquor and mixers, only a little bit of each is drunk.  You’ll have a lot of leftovers.
