Need Opinions - Reception Bar - Special Circumstance...

this particular resort is not legally allowed to sell alcohol on the beach due to some particular hawiian code viloation.
this means that FI and I can provide all of the liquor and we pay the resort a $250 bar set up fee and a bartender $45 per hour to serve the alcohol.
i am thinking of having (for 40 people):
1.5 cases white wine
.5 case red wine
3 or 4 cases beer
sodas, juice and bottled water
coffee and tea will be included in the buffet
do you think it is a big deal not to have liquor and just wine and beer?
do you think we should have 1 signature drink? if so, what?

Then, if you assume people drink 2-3 drinks per hour, you've got 40 guests - let's assume they drink a non-alcoholic bev once every 3 drinks (so 2 alcoholic per hour) - you've got 80 alcoholic drinks per hour, or roughly 2 hours worth of alcohol.
Like I said, my friends may be a bunch of lushes, but I'd increase your quantities.
And I LOVE the idea of a signature bev. Go with something tropical that can be served on the rocks (so no need for a blender) maybe MaiTais or a fruit punch with booze (2 parts cranberry, 3 parts orange and 1 part pineapple with either (a) champagne or ( soda water and vodka is YUMMY).

do you think i should go heavier on wine or beer?
and if i add the signature drink, can i keep the wine and beer where it is?

You could do a really cool signature drink to match your color scheme, that would be festive!

jamy and becks - how many drinks per person would you allocate for a heavy drinker?

i don't really have wedding colors.
all of my paper products and my logo are in the teal / turquoise / light blue family but that is as far as i am carrying it through (at this point)
i am thinking of magenta BM dresses, white parasols for the girls and a boquet of magenta orchids for me.
i am going to go google some speciality hawaiian cocktails

The Original Hawaiian Martini
Roy's put this delectable creation on the map.
In classic Hawaiian fashion, our Maui pineapples are infused
in SKYY Vodka, Stoli Vanil Vodka and Malibu Coconut Rum.
Shaken and served with a fresh pineapple.
