    Usually I’ll go for a rum & coke or dirty Shirley. I also like pretty much anything fruity. Just please make sure there’s Grenadine!

    Barbiestylez:  I just drink wine. If you were out,I’d have a beer.

    Maybe, feeling adventurous, I’d have a Gin and Tonic.

    Barbiestylez:  Malibu Rum and 7 up (Malibu and 7). If Malibu Rum isn’t there, then it’s a screwdriver (vodka and orange juice)

    It depends. If I’m wearing a light colored dress, I’ll order Bacardi and Sprite usually… It’s what I drank at my own wedding, because in case of a spill, it wouldn’t ruin my dress.  If I’m wearing a darker dress, I go with Captain and ginger ale. I always try to order real simple drinks, that way I don’t hold up the bar line 🙂

    I work casually as an event bartender where most weddings the couple provides the alcohol. Here’s my advice:

    • Buy it from somewhere that you can returned the unopened bottles and let the bartenders know that’s what you plan to do (so they don’t open more than one at a time unless it’s still early)
    • Keep it simple, most people will be able to find something to drink.
    • Most weddings will have at least a few people who want to do shots, so as long as you’re okay with people partying hard you’re going to need at least a good tequila and/or a liquor of some sort.
    • Only a few people will like some Baileys with their coffee or over ice so just buy about one or two bottles of that.
    • Most event centres provide the mix, but if not make sure that you have the supplies for cesars/blody marys and at least diet coke.

    That’s it for now, hope it helps!

    I’d get some kind of white wine. I’m not really a fan of any of the poll options you have.
