We are in the same dillemma because our caterer is providing food and real plates/silverware, but are not providing beverages (thus not providing glassware – its not an option).

We are leaning towards getting the nice plastic cups only because it would be so much easier than going through a rental company. Not ideal but it is practical, and saves some money!

@Overwhelmed:  My friend did that. It was great. Nobody thought twice about it.

@Overwhelmed:  I think the plastic is fine and people don’t have to worry about them.

             I’d be happy with the clear plastic cups. I wouldn’t feel awful if I knocked it over and broke it as I would if it were real glass, especially with it being outside.

@Overwhelmed:  Yep, they’re too easy to break, especially if you have stemwear. And if people have a few alcoholic drinks and aren’t careful, you have child guests, etc., you can have breakage, spills and possibly cuts. You don’t need that headache, with a large group. Good luck!

I would absolutely go with plastic, especially since it will be outdoors. It makes sense for drinks. People are going to be carrying that around, unlike plates and utensils.
