Do you have a color scheme for your wedding? Are purple or gold part of the color scheme? If purple is part of your scheme I’d go with purple! Those are pretty cool.

Another thing to consider….do they match your dining set? Do you care if they match your dinning set?

RenoSweeney24:  I guess I used the wrong word when I said pattern. I would choose the color and rim combination that would match the crystal set I wanted to complete. As I would never choose  purple crystal- wine looks best in clear glass-that rules out the purple for me.

If you have no intention of completing a Waterford crystal set, the purple would be a  nice hit of color, and the color of the stemware doesn’t really matter with champagne.

RenoSweeney24:  I’d get the purple ones. But I do agree with julies1949, wine looks best in clear glasses. So, are you going to complete the set? Are you going to use them? Or, just display them or use for special ocassions so the entire set doesn’t matter?

I like the 1st ones.

Purple is an unfortunate choice for crystal stemware in my opinion.

I prefer the first ones. Simple. Elegant. Just my style.

RenoSweeney24:  I like the last one best, the touch of gold on the rim is subtle enough for my liking (not a fan of coloured crystal) but still has that hint of difference for when you complete the set.
