Stocking a bar for a wedding

Brother in law's wedding this weekend, a very informal beach affair. Approx 50 guests are invited, and I think that will be very close to actual attendance. We will be serving beer, champagne and liquor, no wine. Trying to estimate how many bottles and mixers. This is a crowd that likes to drink, however, we only plan on serving for about 1 hour or until it's all gone.

Already have lots of rum, 2 bottles gin, 2 bottles vodka. Thinking I need 2-3 cases of beer, 2 cases of Coke (for the rum), 1 case Diet Coke, 1 case water, 6 bottles champagne (mainly for toasting), small bit of Red Bull, 1 big bottle of cranberry juice....sound like enough? Thanks!
