Need advice on alcohol servings!!!

My fiance and I are planning a small wedding of about 120 people. The venue we've chosen allows for beer, wine, champagne... but no hard liquor.  Honestly, this is fine with us, however he and I are having trouble nailing down how MUCH alcohol (beer vs wine) to bring. Our venue only allows us to bring one keg (based on the size of our wedding), but is okay with unlimited bottles/cans of beer, and no limit on how many wine bottles we bring. So, my side will account for about 45-50 of our 120, and we're not heavy drinkers by any means, but I'd say they're all about average. As for HIS side (LOL), well, let's just say, they enjoy their vino and beer. No one ever gets out of hand, but they do drink a fair portion at other family functions. Anyone have any ideas of how many drinks/servings of beer/wine you think we may need?? Any help would be appreciated!!

    Hmm...this is a tough one...a good start would be having enough for everyone to have 2-3 beers, taking into account that some people won't drink or will drink wine.  So then take into account you can usually get about 4 glasses of wine per bottle, so you have to think of how many people are wine drinkers vs beer drinkers.  But def plan on everyone having 2-4 drinks.  I dont know if that helps, but hopefully! :)  Good luck!!

    I found the Evite drink calculator to be helpful with general idea:  http://www.evite.com/pages/party/drink-calculator.jsp

    I googled this before and there were a few online calculators, including the evite one tygirl suggested.  They are all very helpful.
