I’m getting married in a vintage-y rooftop penthouse downtown. the caterer is providing glasswarre for the tables (wine glass and water glass) but clear plastic cups for the bar which will serve everything except wine and water. They charge $4.5/per person for the bar glassware so it would be an extra $450 to provide glasses at the bar which I would prefer to spend the money on something else. BUT if clear plastic cups are gonna look cheap/tacky then I might bite the bullet and pay for the glasses. Our wedding isn’t black tie but more like cocktail attire/formality. Thoughts???

I think the price is insane, but I can see the dilemma. Ugh….. maybe they’d let you purchase and bring better plastic cups? Even if you had to buy 300 of them you’d still probably save a bundle. I’m sure you could find cups that are wedding colors or something?

I just went to a wedding where all alcohol was served in plastic cups because the venue had a no glass policy for safety reasons. No one cared whatsoever. Especially if it is an open bar, no one will care how it is served!

People won’t even care. Save your money.

Honestly, I think it would only be tacky if they aren’t recycled later.

I don’t think anyone will care. I know I wouldn’t even notice.

I’ve only been to one wedding that had glassware at the bar. Otherwise, it’s plastic. No biggie.

@kaycee1: I don’t think thats tacky! That’s too much money for people to get booze in, and you don’t want to have to pay for a replacement fee if any get broken.
Your wedding will be fanatstic and no one will be saying, “did you see those tacky plastic drink glasses?” Save yourself the money! 😀

For many reasons, this is not a problem at all. 1) No one will notice at all. 2) You will save money, which you can either put away or use it on something the guests will actually enjoy. 3) Plastic is safe than glass. 4) Plastic transports tasty beverage to waiting mouth hole just as effectively as glass. And for less money! Way less money!
“Tacky” is a myth made up by the bridal industry to sell more crap. Don’t let them get you down. Damn the man! Plastic for drinks!

all depends on the formality of the reception. ball gown/tux then yeah it would matter. summer dresses, shirt no tie, then u should be ok. tough decision. can u outsource the rental to another company for less?

I am getting these frosted plastic cups with our initials on them. They are super cute and really cheap compared to glass
