Check with your caterer.  Even though we are bringing out own liquor the caterer will be providing our barware, glassware, and even some serving dishes for our s’mores bar (we are providing the food for that).

Consult the rental companies in your area. Most of them have good suggestions about the number of glasses.

In our area, I never have to wash glasses, flatware or cutlery, so specifically ask them about that. We just return the glasses to the racks and they sanitize them properly after they are returned.

For about 95 guests and beer (kegs), wine, and cocktails, we rented 100 rocks glasses (8 oz) and 50 wine glasses (10 oz).   (Wow in retrospect that doesn’t seem like enough!!) We had clear plastic cups for non-alcoholic and the kegs (a mix of the smaller cocktail size as well as the larger ones).

I’m not sure, though, if they did wash some of the rocks glasses during the night (e.g. during dinner) — at one point I did see one of the servers carrying a rack toward the event home, so they may have?  And I think they dipped into the plastic cup supply at the end of the night.  Having a backup of plastic may be good (can always return if you don’t use them!)

And, like @julies1949: mentions, we did not clean them – we just returned them to the racks they were delivered in, and I’m sure the rental company cleaned and sanitized them in the racks.  And yes, between the rental company and the caterer, they can help recommend how many glasses.
