I would miss not having coffee.

I enjoy coffee with dessert, but I don’t know if I’d notice if it was never served.

Plus, if I’m not driving and therefore am drinking, I never drink the coffee.  I just keep refilling my wine glass 😉

Sorry, don’t know if that helps.  I have a feeling only the older people in the crowd might notice there’s not coffee or tea.

I enjoyed having coffee with my cake..but then again, I am a big coffee drinker.

I think most people had coffee with the pastries too. But really, I don’t recall having coffee at many weddings I’ve been too..so probably wouldn’t be missed too much.

we had coffee served at ours, but that’s just because the caterer threw it in as part of the package.  Neither my husband and I are coffee drinkers so we wouldn’t have even thought serving coffee if the caterer hadn’t mentioned it.  I don’t think many guests will notice if it’s there or not!

Of all the weddings I’ve been to I don’t ever remember having coffee or tea and honestly didn’t miss it.

most people wouldn’t notice… when i see a delicious piece of cake don’t think well now where is the coffee?  If it was there i would drink it but i dont think its necessary.

I think people would miss the coffee and tea.  Me personally… no, but most of my family drinks coffee or tea with dessert.

I would definitely miss the coffee. I’m a coffee drinker and at an event I always am looking for the coffee to be served with dessert. I would be disappointed without it.

Daughter’s wedding was in August-but I don’t think that made a real difference.  We had wine-and that went over, the coffee & tea didn’t -it was a waste.  and we have some big coffee (and wine) drinkers in the family.  I vote for save your money! 🙂

I’ve been to receptions that had coffee bars and I LOVED it (I’m a coffee-fan). However, I probably wouldn’t think twice if I were at a wedding and it didn’t have coffee or tea.

I think it depends on your crowd? Do you typically serve coffee with desserts at family get together and/or when friends come over?

We always do so unless it was significant we wouldn’t have cut it. For the drivers it would help them sober up a tad as well after a night of drinking. In April in Chicago the warmth might be nice as well before guests head out. What time does your reception end as well? A lot of the older guests might need the coffee later at night.

Fiance and I are big coffee buffs, so I would notice its absence, but wouldn’t care. 

But …. how late of an event are you having?  If you don’t expect guests to leave until late, then coffee might be a pick-me-up to get guests home without falling asleep after hours of dancing/drinking.  Or, you could just set-up a grab-bar of 5-hour energy shots.
