    Definitely wine! 🙂 It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but it’s always nice to have wine at dinner if you’re a wine drinker. No reason it can’t go well with BBQ, anyway. 🙂

    Yes, I think if you are having alcohol, you should offer wine as well. Many women I know (myself included) prefer not to drink beer at an event because of the bloat factor. I think you could get away with just a white though.

    wine doesn’t really go with bbq.. for my palate anyways.. maybe put a pitcher of sangria on each table instead!

    Oo, I think Sangria sounds like a great idea.  Even if sangria is not an option, I would suggest wine.  I don’t care for beer and would personally really appreciate some vino at a wedding.

    Yeah, actually sangria sounds like a great idea.. but of course you have to actually prepare it, so I go back to wine on ease of presentation. 😉

    Unless your guests just aren’t wine drinkers, have some wine!

    Sangria sounds yummy, but if you’re only offering beer, you should definitely offer wine!

    Margaritas sound better to me, though, if you want to offer ONE hard liquor drink. You can premix it or rent a machine so it’s not crazy strong or anything. Then people aren’t getting ridiculous =]. 

    I think wine goes with mexican food, for sure! Not as well as beer, but definitely give your guests a choice! Sometimes beer just sits way too heavy when you’re having a heavy meal.

    Yes, I would definitely include wine or like the other ladies said, Sangria. Now that I think about it, the Sangria may be a better choice with the type of food that you have selected. Either way having an alternative for the non-beer drinkers is usually appreciated.

    My sister had two “Margarators” at her wedding and they were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved them, we had strawberry margaritas going in one and the traditional in the other. The reviews on the machine I linked don’t seem to be that good, but we haven’t have any trouble so far with them (knock on wood, I am planning on using them at my wedding).

    As for wine, I think providing maybe a couple of those boxed wines could be a good idea. There are a couple of boxed wines out there that of very decent.

    if you are only having beer, i definitely think you need something else: whether that is wine, sangria or margaritas… that’s up to you.  but i would definitely add a beverage for the non-beer drinkers out there.

    I would serve margaritas or sangria, but if not I would definitely include wine. I don’t drink beer at all, so I would be stuck drinking water at what sounds like a fun party! 🙁
