    Necessary? No.

    Good to have? Yes.

    I’m a huge tea fan. I’ll drink any kind of tea anywhere at anytime. It’s a good “Cleanse your pallet” drink and I’d be sad if it wasn’t at a wedding. But I wouldn’t be heartbroken or angry.

    Coffee is great if it’s a night time reception and/or it’s cold, I’m not having it at my wedding since it’s in June and nobody wants to drink hot coffee on a boiling day.

    If you want to drop it, I’d drop it. I wouldn’t feel too  bad about it.

    I don’t know about your family, but I know my family likes to drink a little coffee right they drive home after having a few drinks. I’m not saying it’s right – I’m just saying thats what they do.

    What drinks are you offering?

    We are offering iced water, bottled soda, coffee & tea [both sweetened & lemon].

    For us, it is a big deal because our family drinks alot of tea/coffee.

    I would just do the coffee urn. Is there a way you can add a hot water station too? Would that reduce the price?

    It probably depends on your crowd. I can’t imagine not having coffee because where I’m from, most everyone drinks a cup at all the weddings I’ve been to. But if your guests aren’t big coffee drinkers then you could try one of the other options you listed.

    the urn isn’t a bad idea but I think you should have something

    My wedding is in July, and even though it is one of our hottest months (July is our hottest, January is our coldest) our wedding will be in the evening, leading in to the night. People are going to want coffee, especially immediately after dinner. Around here it is almost UNHEARD of not to order a cup of coffee after dinner. In fact, I’m drinking a nice cup of decaff right now!

    In my family it’s necessary.  Doesn’t matter if its 10º or 90º. You know your circle will they want tea or coffee?

    I like the urn idea! That is probably what we will do because I know of at least a few people, my dad included, who love coffee and will need to drink it to stay awake lol

    Absolutely a requirement.

    It is “normal” in society to “have a cuppa” after a meal.

    Be a considerate host and provide it.

    @Hyperventilate:  It’s not necessary, but I love a cup of tea at the end of the night. Hubby will drink coffee any time, anywhere.
