    Coffee is always served with dessert at weddings ๐Ÿ™‚ There are *surprisingly* tons of people who drink coffee at night!  Usually coffee & tea is included with a catered meal…

    In this case, I would totally suggest having servers serve the coffee! The last thing you want is Nana to spill hot coffee all over herself or have someone bump into you & pour their coffee all over you!

    Hot coffee + roaming guests = bad idea!

    $200 sounds pretty reasonable, but that really depends on your budget and number of guests.  I know all the older people in my family would expect coffee after dinner or with their slice of wedding cake.  But to be honest, I wouldn’t even notice if it were missing!

    I always drink coffee with dessert. Caffeine is like water to me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I would agree with paying for the served coffee! Dessert and coffee go hand in hand ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unfortunately, I must agree with the others.  I am one of those pesky evening coffee/tea drinkers, and I know that many of my older relatives would be disappointed without coffee.  Wedding cake just tastes better with coffee!

    I actually voted that it is not needed, because its your wedding and you can serve whatever you want. But coffee with desset is common, and I would like to have it, but I wouldn’t be upset if it wasn’t available.

    Since your wedding is ending at 9 pm on a Sunday, I would suggest serving it, especially if you have guests that will be driving a long distance home.  The last Sunday wedding we went to, was over at 5 or so, but it was nice to have something to stay awake for the drive home.

    I think you should defintiely have coffee there if it is within your budget. I am not much of a coffee drinker but I know majority of my family would have expected coffee there to have with their dessert. It would also be good to have around for those that may have downed a little too many drinks during the night.

    I never drink coffee at weddings (or at dinner for that matter) because I’m usually drinking alcohol ;o)  However I do know that many older family members do look for coffee with/after dessert.

    coffee in my opinion is needed. after a big meal, lots of food and desert (as is typical with weddings), i would think that coffee would add a most-needed boost to everyone while on the dance floor…as well as for anyone driving home.

    Yes, and unfortunately, if it’s not sitting out, obvious to people, they may not know it’s there and drink it so having it served might be nice. Most older people do want it though, or those who aren’t imbibing.

    I’d personally be looking for the coffee at the end of the night so I could party and drive home with enough energy to make it. Also, I just love coffee with my dessert. I think it’s best to have servers pour just in case there are accidents.
