I'm getting in married in December. Our venue has a fancy old-fashioned bar, but we have no bartender. Help me plan an awesome DIY bar!

Our wedding is pretty low-budget and DIY. There will be about 80-100 guests and I have no idea how to stock the bar.
One plan is to get a few beverage dispensers and premix huge batches of drinks (sangria, boozy punches? ), and guests would have a few options for drinks. Someone else suggested filling the beverage dispensers with non-alcoholic fancy drinks, and then having bottles of liquor for guests to add in themselves if they want. And yet another suggestion was to ditch the dispensers all together and just stock up with various bottles of booze and mixers and let everyone do whatever they want.
What specifically should we buy? What's the best way to do this without making it overly complicated/expensive? What am I not thinking of? Do you have any amazing sangria or cocktail recipes that would be perfect? Any other ideas for making this awesome?
Because the wedding is at night in winter, we also plan on having coffee and hot water for tea/cocoa available for everyone.
