I would say it would depend on how long you are serving alcohol for and if your guests are about more beer drinkers or wine drinkers. A standard 750ml bottle has about 5 servings, depending on the glass and who is pouring it!  When I did my calculations I did 1.5 drinks per hour per guest. Some will drink more and some will drink less. 

 

If the 80 bottles is the 750ml that is 400 glasses of wine but then only 110 beers.

Knowing your guests is important too, maybe they like beer more than wine or vice versa. If your guests are mostly in their 20s, I feel like they definitely can drink one glass (or more) per hour.

We started alcohol at 6 and ended at 1145. We had about 100 drinkers out of 150 guests. We went through 2 half barrels of beer and 37 bottles of wine.

sunshineandpolkadots:  Hi there, I’m so sorry, I counted again because the numbers I posted earlier seemed off, and turns out I mistyped my answer. Based on a chart I found on apracticalwedding(dot)com, which I’m using myself, the result is 77/78 bottles of wine and 129/130 bottles of beer.

A keg will most likely be a toooon cheaper than bottles.
