We didn’t do a BBB registry but we did do a C&B registry. We like the C&B glasses, but keep an eye out on your registry as our initial stemware got discontinued (seemingly out of nowhere) and we had to swap out. Luckily, no one had bought us any of the first design when we did the swap. They’re also relatively inexpensive, depending on the style, so if you needed to complete your registry, you can easily do so. Do inspect the box as soon as it arrives as they’re wrapped individually and we had one or two cracked glasses (we did get a ton of stemware/glassware however). 

That said, we registered for some really nice, fancy high tumblers from C&B that now I’m too scared to use because they’re really delicate. We’re using our cheap Ikea glasses for our day-to-day drinking glasses.

Bed Bath and Beyond carries a lot of different brands — check out some of the reviews.

I would check out how the “bubble” is formed under the glass. We have similar glasses to that from C&B and the air bubble is open to the bottom (if that makes sense). So when you are washing it, you have to be cognizant of getting all the water out from the bubble because otherwise, if you have hard water, you’ll end up with cloudiness in the bubble. I didn’t realize this until I read the reviews online. So we handwash ours and I shake out the water droplets (using super hot water helps). Otherwise, you can use a q-tip.

If it is a solid bottom and the bubble is encased inside the glass bottom (so it doesn’t open up to the outside), then you can ignore my directions. 🙂
