    Its not my cup of tea, personally, but I think it could be really cool!
    A friend of mine didn’t have actual invites and did her’s all online, so I know it can work. Let us know what you end up doing 🙂

    I think that could be really confusing.

    Eh, it’s not that it’s a bad idea, it’s just that I don’t think it would be executed very well and people wouldn’t understand.

    I’d be worried about the arrangements to mail shot glasses. You could always keep them as favors. If you have more details on exactly what you’re thinking, please share! If you’re excited about it, you could pull it off but I’d like more specifics on how it will work, who would get them, etc.

    i would be worried about shipping them, they would probably be really expensive to ship, and if they broke, then all your guests would be really confused.  but i do like the idea of personalized shot glasses as favors, maybe you could use them as holders for your escort cards instead of the actual invite.

    How would you relay all of the info on a shot glass?  What about the guests who aren’t drinkers or internet-savvy?

    I went with bad too….I think it would be a better idea to give shot glasses as a favor maybe, as the invitation it could be confusing and maybe even offend some older guests.

    i think unique invitations, thinking outside the box is awesome, but i agree with the others that this could be a shipping nightmare. is there something less breakable/bulky that you could send? we are thinking about just doing postcards as invites, and they lead to our webpage. good luck!

    I’m all about unique invitations. I especially loves the ones I’ve seen that come in a box, and it’s set-up like a recipe box. So cute!

    This idea is cool, too, but I think it’s a little *too* confusing, even if you’re trying to make it a little tricky. On top of that,  you’ll have to wrap them in bubble wrap to enure they don’t break in the mail, which will take away from the presentation a little. So, in the end, I voted that it was a bad idea.

    But I think you should keep brainstorming! I LOVE untraditional invitations.

    I agree with the other comments. Its a cool thought, but I think most people will be confused…

    I agree as a nontraditional invitation idea is really cool, but I’ll be worried about the safety of the glass, maybe you can find something else that does not breaks so easily 🙂 I love unique invitations 🙂
