Hello bees We’ve been searching for simple toasting flutes at a super cheap price but had no luck. We Need 14 total and really don’t want to pay over $30 yes I know how cheap of me! I found some really cute plastic ones at the dollar tree. Has anyone ever used plastic flutes for a toast is that horrible if me?

I used plastic ones at my wedding because we had to provide everything at our venue (not made for weddings). We had more of a casual vibe, so I think it’ll depend on if you’re having it in a ballroom vs. outside, but these are the ones I got. They’re one piece and very sturdy.

Here’s a case of 12 for $45 on ebay– not exactly what you are looking for, and the shipping raises the total cost, but I bet if you spent some time digging around, you could get in the ballpark. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Libbey-3794-4-5-Ounce-Embassy-Flute-Champagne-Glass-Sold-as-1-Case-of-12-/310837801299?pt=Glassware&hash=item485f607153
Personally unless it is a very casual event I would do whatever I could to get glass flutes. Drinking from plastic really sets the atmosphere and will not mesh well with even a “business casual” level of formality.
There is also 18 for $58 with free shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Libbey-Spectra-Clear-Stem-6oz-Champagne-Fute-Glass-18-Count-Case-8596-/390747096853?pt=Glassware&hash=item5afa578715

You can probably get them pretty cheap at IKEA.

IKEA flutes are incredibly cheap, like $5 for 6 of them. There’s hardly an excuse to not get glass when it comes that cheap..
If plastic is your only option, I would skip the champagne entirely.

As a guest, I’m usually thinking “Oooh, free champagne!”, not “These are plastic? How tacky!”. I’ve seen those at Dollar Tree before and I think those will work just fine.
