If you have bottled water and alcohol available from the bar (in some kind of glass i’m assuming) i think you’re ok. Otherwise, what’s the point for putting glasses on the tables? If you do, you could offer lemonade infusions

Id only put glasses on the table if you were doing water or something at the tables.  Just put a napkin and silverware and it will look nice 🙂

I think you’ll be ok as long as there is a way to contain the drinks  The tables should look ok without them being set

I think this sounds ok. I went to a wedding once that used plastic silverware and I was not a fan of that, too difficult to cut the meat, etc.

mason jars sound cute. I would put those cute drink dispensers close to the tables so people can refill their jars.

You could put the napkins at every seat and if you’re using silverware put that at each table as well if you’re worried about the tables looking too bare. Not to mention it’s less for people to carry back to their seats. It will look fine without glassware on the tables though so don’t stress out and overthink it!

You’ll be fine without glassware.  Place settings are a bit overrated.  People just walk in, sit down, and mess them up anyway.  (It used to drive me nuts when I catered). 

But, if you decide to do mason jars, that could be really cute.  They could also double as place cards — just tie on a cute tag around the rim (use twine or something that’s okay to get wet), or put on a sticker (and then no one would lose theirs; it doubles as a drink tag).

Those look like the Pottery Barn dispensers. Sooo pretty!
