As long as they arent red solo cups which scream frat party, there is nothing wrong with disposable cups like you posted.

I think it’s fine for what you’re doing, and with the style of the cup you’re looking at using.

I think that would be appropriate for pre-ceremony drinks (which is a nice touch). Plus that way people aren’t left wondering where to put their glasses once they’re in the ceremony space, they can just be thrown away.

On the lawn, outdoors–perfectly fine to use nice plastic cups.  Make sure to have a few trash receptacles near the drink station for them.

Play up the “lemonaide” stand theme if you like to make yourself more comfortable with the plastic cups.  Perhaps a young wedding guest (eg., two little girls) to help serve.

It is very nice to offer the refreshments pre-ceremony, don’t sweat the cups.

The cups you posted look totally fine to use and they wouldn’t clash with the other decor.  I think it’s better to have something disposeable if people will be wandering around before the ceremony.

Personally, I’d use disposable for the whole reception instead of renting it. I think they’re fine!

Our ceremony was in a park… here’s the (permanent) picnic table that held our programs, water, parasols, and fans. A friend of mine manned it pre-ceremony so people would know to take things. It worked out well and people appreciated it. I think you’ll be fine with disposable cups. We got ours from SmartyHadAParty.com

We offered our guests pre-ceremony refreshments in those exact cups you posted and it was totally fine. We had sweet tea, pink lemonade, and regular lemonade in pretty glass dispensers and a basket nearby for trash. It was convenient and easy and our guests enjoyed it.

Post-ceremony, my husband and I walked down the aisle together and stopped at the drinks station for a sip of lemonade too!

At first I thought you meant styrofoam cups, but those aren’t too bad at all. Go for it!

@PaisleyMedic:  I think it’s fine! Esp. if it’s only for pre-ceremony drinks and that glass, than sure!

I love those cups! I use them for all my parties larger than 4 people because they’re so convenient and look much nicer than SOLO cups! Go for it!

Our venue advised us against providing pre-ceremony drinks as the guests will not usually dispose of them when it’s time for the ceremony, and the glasses/cups end up making a lot of background noise (ice bumping around, people drinking loudly, crumpling the plastic when the glass is empty).
