I would have the bartender have the glasses with him at dinner (not have the guests bring up their glasses).  I think it is okay to have plastic during cocktail hour.

We ended up with plastic for cocktail hour.  We actually kept the plastic at the bar, had glassware on the table for wine and water.

I would not have guests bring up cups to the bartender.  Have the bartender hand out glasses.

No not tacky to have plastic, Get the fancy plastic glassware from http://www.smartyhadaparty.com/ but either way it will be fine. I would leave them with the bartender though and not have them take their glasses to him for drinks.,

Plastic is fine. And I agree that the bar tender will need some glasses at the bar for people that don’t bring up theirs from the table. Or those that want a different drink or whatever.

At the bar we are doing plastic for beer and glass wine glasses for wine so we kind of compromised between glass and plastic.  There will be no wine glasses on the table though so only people who order wine from the bar will get a wine glass.  I think it’s completely fine to do plastic, especially if it will make everything run smoothly!

I think plastic is fine, as long as you the thick clear ones that look a little nicer.
