The amount of beer is not my concern (I know how much I'll need) I am just looking for some insight as to what type would be a good choice?

You make a good point on the IPA....not to many people like them from my experience. I don't know what a "wit" is but I'll look into it!

My biggest concern is the labels though. How many of you guys label your beer? The prices I have found are like $300 to label 20 gallons of beer! Too much for my taste.

P.S. I'll be putting them in 12 oz bottles, so I guess around 200 labels
belgian wit.. commercial examples are blue moon or hoegaarden

And for as labeling... All I do is put colored dots on the cap to signify what the beer is and being as you are brewing for a wedding; you should have a bar tender and that technique should work for you if you so choose to use it
Primary: cabernet sauvignon, El dorado pale
Seconday: Golding abbey, Flanders Red, Cocoa IPA, S.C.A. IPA
Bottled: Golding kolsch, Raspberry Mead, Berlinner Weisse, Caliente Pale ale, Amarillo/Citra wheat
Kegged empty

Golden ale, pale ale, wit, Heferwizzen, brown ale. All very good very drinkable and not too fancy

Just my own two cents... your instinct on cream ales is a good one. Girls will drink cream ales, and tipsy women make for an excellent reception

Hefe is a good choice, or a golden ale. Belgian wit or some other Weiss beer would work well, too...
