    I think that sounds fine. I don't believe you wil get heavy drinkers on a Sunday. I would keep the beer, most guys like beer, wine of course, and the punch sounds like a good idea. What if you do a sweeter voldka based punch and a more tropical rum based punch, this way all bases are covered.

        I actually did this at my wedding. It was an evening wedding and I had a bar with beer, wine (red & white options and a white zinfandel) and champagne. It went great. People ate, drank and were very merry! ;-)

        Not that they would tell me, but I didn't hear (or hear of) a single comment after the fact that people were disappointed by our beverage options. We know a lot of wine drinkers though...and those that aren't seem to be beer drinkers. (is that a Texas thing?) So everyone seemed really happy - we were left with just a smidge of beer in one of the kegs by the end of the night.

        If you need help w/ how much to buy, I can look over our stuff for you and let you know what we got so you can start shopping/budgeting. Our group was larger - about 145 people - but we might be able to do a little tricky math and figure it out from there. ;-)

        Just let me know! Also, I think I know of a handy little drink calculator that might work for you too. I'll see if I can find it.

            Thanks Rachelle! Im going to check that calculator out.
            Im really thinking we will just go with a punch. A lot of people will be driving up from the city and not stay overnight so I cant see a lot of people drinking. I think most of the drinkers will be our friends and they all drink beer.
            Does anyone have any good recipes for punch?

              one of my favorite sites has great recipes...I have one from there that I really like...although it's not a pretty color unfortunately. Tastes GREAT though...served it at a party and it was a hit. I'll find it for you just in case.

              Anyway, the website is:
              Drinking at Epicurious.com

              just enter your search citeria and have at it! I've had pretty good luck finding stuff on this site over the years. Also, they may have a drink calcualtor on there as well.

                  here's the one I made for my Halloween party last year. It was really yummy! I think I doubled the recipe for the party...and it made a BIG bowlful.
