I actually think this is a pretty reasonable quote, especially given that you wouldn’t have to source, purchase, set up, and generally deal with it.

Hmmm – this is probably the sort of thing that would just make the caterer angry. They know how much stuff to bring because they do this all the time. If you bring the wrong amount or wrong kind of stuff – what are they going to do? They aren’t going to come to your rescue since you took away their $400. They’re just gonna serve 4oz of wine in pint glasses and snicker.

If I were you, I’d spend my hours looking for other catering options instead of researching how many of which kinds of disposable glasses to buy. If they’re the best deal in town – I’d just pay it. It does not seem worth the headache at all to me. But maybe you know someone who’s educated in these things who can help. I’d be totally lost.

That’s cheap.. I’m from Canada and our bar fees (or corkage they call it here) usually starts at $10.00 per person or more which inclues ice, glasses, pepsi products, the bartenders, straws, fruit garnishes, etc.  I’d take it if i were you based on the prices up here!
