FI and I are looking at pruchasing some personalized wedding flutes off Ebay.
We have 8 people in our wedding party and are looking at purchasing 10 flutes. Would the two extra flutes go to our mothers (Mother of Bride, Mother of Groom) and would that be “inappropriate” to leave our Fathers out of it (them not getting personalized flutes)? Or traditionally do the fathers get flutes as well? So confused haha

sorry wish i could help. i am only buying 2 flutes for FI and myself! i didn’t know you were supposed to get for the whole bridal party!
granted, they will be going in our wine box for the wine box ceremony. so we won’t be using them in front of everyone.
with regards to your situation though, are you and your FI include in the 8 people? i think you should get to keep some too! if you are already included, then i guess i think it would be okay but not ideal to leave the fathers out. assuming both parents are married and get to bring the one home – it could be like you are giving the one to both of them

I think you should include the FOB and FOG. They are just as important as the MOB and MOG. I think it would hurt them if you left them out.

@dynamic_duo: We have our own “special” flutes I bought the other day 🙂 I don’t think you’re ‘supposed’ to buy for the whole party. I just thught it would be a nice added extra for them to commemorate the day. My FI has a “Ring Bearer” wine glass from when he was in his Aunt’s wedding back when he was like 7 years old lol.
