We’re having a semi-formal wedding. For our open bar, our caterer suggested to use plastic cups (the nice ones) for our cocktail drinks to avoid renting more glasses. Of course for wine glasses, we’d rent it. Then maybe for water, we’ll just get bottled water. My question is, if we get plastic cups for our cocktails, would that make the wedding seem informal? I’m hoping to do signature cocktails. I’ve been to places/lounges where they do plastic cups and I thought it was fine. What do y’all think?

You can find some nice plastic cups that don’t look like your standard red or blue Solo party cups. I think the nice plastic cups would be alright. Are you having your reception in a formal setting? Or are you having it somewhere less so, like outside? If you are going to be outside, I think plastic would be a great idea. If it’s not in your budget to get the extra glass glasses, then don’t worry about it. Glasses aren’t something to go into debt over.

I’d personally go for glass instead of plastic, because plastic can give off a weird taste. I remember reading about this in a magazine article once..lemme see if I can fnd it.

We are getting personalized pint glasses to double as favors- putting our names and wedding date on them. We are also doing a candy table in case they don’t like the glasse. Then we are renting wine glasses. We fig pint glasses can be used for whatever- beer, soda, or different mixed drinks. We will probably buy some smaller plastic cups if ppl want whiskey or something like that.

I’m doing plastic for our whole bar. I found solo type cups that are completely clear, in 16oz for beer and 12 oz for mixed drinks, and I’m going with the short 9oz clear plastic tumblers for wine.
The reception is outdoors, and I’d call it semi-formal. I don’t think anyone will look down on our plastic cups (we’re using real plates and silverware, cloth napkins, and glass water glasses on the tables), but we’ll see.
