We did coffee at our reception, but this is definitely a know your crowd thing. I’d say more than 50% of our guests had coffee with dessert (mostly people in their 20s and 30s with a few older generation family members that stayed through dessert).
It’s definitely a know your crowd thing. We did coffee @ our reception. We didn’t go through the venue since they would charge by the head even though not all our guests drink coffee. We ordered it from Dunkin Doughnuts & GrubHub delivered.
How much extra will it cost? If it's not that much more, I'd definitely include it. If it's alot extra, I'd consider the crowd. I love coffee with my dessert and it definitely helps to wake up before a drive home after a night of dancing.
Definitely have coffee, older people love their coffee towards the end of the night and other guests might want it to especially if they have a long drive home. I can't imagine the price of coffee being expensive enough to cut out of the reception.
Yes definitely have it. At night, if you have drinking, people need it the last hour to help sober up before heading home. It always goes great with cake. Those who don’t want it won’t drink it. Why does the coffee cost that much though? Can you cut out something else you don’t want or need to cover the costs?
I’m a young person and I always drink the coffee at a wedding!
You don’t have to go crazy and you don’t have to provide enough for everyone— for sure not everyone will have it. But there’s always a few people who look for it. We had coffee/tea service with dessert itemized for 75 guests (125 person wedding). We just had a station set up— one big carafe of coffee and one of hot water , with cups and accoutrements next to it. Doesn’t have to be anything fancy but it is definitely a nice to have !
