- Wedding: August 2012
I thought I had everything figured out with regards to party gifts, but then realized I forgot about our mothers. The bridesmaids are each getting a wine glass that I will have engraved with their name, title, and the date of the wedding. The groomsmen are getting glass mugs engraved the same way. My fiance’s mom likes wine so I’ll probably order another wine glass for her, but my mom presents a little bit of a challenge. My mom gave up drinking a year ago (after a long life as an alcoholic) and I just don’t think that a wine glass is appropriate. I thought about getting her a vase because she likes flowers and I could still get it engraved like the other gifts. However, I’m not able to find very much online. There are a lot of pretty vases, but this one would need to be fairly plain to accomodate engraving. I also would like to keep it under 7 inches tall because I think anything bigger would be too large.
So, does anyone have any ideas of where I could find a vase? Or another alternative to the wine glass? I’d like to keep the cost of the vase at about $30. I am having all of the gifts engraved locally so I don’t need to buy it from a place that engraves it for me.
