    I’ll drink whatever you’re serving! 🙂

    Given my choice, I would start either with champagne or a gin and tonic (depending on mood/type of champagne), then move on to red wine for the rest of the night.

    2 glasses of white wine (pinot grigio if available) and then vodka soda for the rest of the night

    if it’s really cold out (like december 31!) and i’m wearing dark colors i’ll have red instead of white, but i’m not picky 🙂

    I would have wine (usually red) during cocktail hour and dinner, and probably gin and tonic or gin and cranberry afterwards.

    I drink wine usually—red or white, doesn’t matter. I will occasionally also drink a mixed drink. There are calculators online that let you determine how much of different kinds of alcohol to buy, based on the number of guests, kinds of alcohol you will have (i.e., just wine and beer, or totally open bar), and length of your reception. The general rule for number of drinks per person is 2 in the first hour, and 1 an hour afterwards. I don’t know what the standards are on the ratios of different kinds of alcohol, though.

    Hahah, you need an all of the above option! Smile

    My go-to opion would be Pinot Grigio, but I like Cabernet Sauvignon as well.  However, I also like a quality beer (not, like, Miller Light or something).

    As for cocktails, my favorite is gin and tonic – simple, very hard to mess up.  If my best friends are there, I may have some sort of tequila drink, but that can be bad news….

    I tend to drink wine, because I can sip on it throughout the event, and not get trashed.  Which type depends on what food is being served.  I prefer white wine, though, just because I don’t like the way red wine gets stuck in any dry skin on my lips leaving that dark stain.

    If it is only a wine and beer reception I will drink some type of white wine.  But if I get the choice of liquor I will always choose that over wine.  Typically a vodka cranberry or sweet tea vodka and lemonade or water.

    I usually drink a margarita or two and a couple of cokes (depending on how long I stay at the reception).

    I drink vodka tonics with a lime if my dress is tight, and beer (bud light, select, or ultra) if my dress is loose.  lol — beer really bloats me up!   It also depends on how long of a reception you are having. Normally people don’t drink hard alchohol the entire time during a 6 hour reception! I rarely drink wine because I dont know enough about it… I work at a country club and we provide cabernet, chardonay, merlot, and a sweet white (reisling or moscato) for open wedding bars.

    I usually go for wine or a gin and tonic at weddings.  I normally prefer red wine, but at weddings I always choose a white wine.  I am clumsy and refuse to carry a “dangerous” color drink around. I could totally see myself being *that* guest who trips on their feet and spills red on someone. :/

    I go for my standard vodka mixed-drink, or champagne if it’s available.
