Although we are having a BBQ reception, I still want to have a little bit of formality at the tables by having glass “goblets” (I found some I love). The wedding is still going to be classy.. just a bit rustic 🙂
Here’s the deal… probably 40% of our guests are going to be drinking beer from our kegs. Should we provide plastic cups for the kegs?
If so, is it a waste of money to buy the glass goblets?
Our other drink options are wine, iced tea, water, and lemonade.
Do we fill all the glasses up with water and if they want something else it goes in plastic?
I’m at a loss!!
Thank you in advance 🙂

Hmm. We’re going plastic for our non-alcohol and glass for our alcohol, because alcohol is one of those things that has to be kept cold, you know? But I wouldn’t have been adverse to beer being in plastic–we’re going to be out in a kind of widespread place with plenty of room for “accidents” that i’d rather not have glass be a part of…:)

we are doing plastic cups for the beer at ours…but not the big red party cups.
They are clear plastic and are thick plastic if that makes any sense. Purchased @ Sams Club. They look ALOT more classy than the red party cups….this isnt a keg party!!

Can you rent glassware, instead of buying it?
If not, I like the clear plastic cups like gurlwithapen mentioned. I got some at Costco for my engagement party and they definitely looked a lot classier than the typical party cup. They have smaller ones too that you could use for wine as well. (Some people prefer drinking wine out of glass though, so you could still get your goblets ).

Good thinking… See, I was totally picturing the red party cups LOL.
I knew they came in clear, but I forgot about the heavy ones. I know exactly what you are talking about.
We have a Sam’s in town so I will def. go check prices.
A fellow Bee also mentioned IKEA for cheap glassware.
