I had these stemless wine glasses made as wedding favors for all my guests, then when we got them, I started thinking…. people will be drinking out of them all night, how will they take them home? Should I have other glasses on the tables as well as these? Or should i get the MC to make a special announcement that the glasses are yours to keep and you can take them up to the bar to rinse out before you go? haha did not forsee this problem!

It’s going to double your expense if you have another whole set of glasses to give away.
I would either have a sign on each table letting people know the glasses are meant to be taken home, or have the MC make an announcemen.
I think most people would just make sure they were as dry as possible before taking them home at the end of the night.

I have taken favors like that dirty before. If you can afford it, have other glasses at the table. If you can’t, no big deal, people know how to handle situations like that. They’ll wipe them off & stick them in their purses.

Why not provide either a bag or box that they can put the glass in at the end of the night?

If your venue provides glasses for water/coffe/wine/etc, then maybe I’d set these on the table in a small box or with bag of kisses or something inside, so folks get that they’re favors and that they don’t need to use them. Otherwise, see if you could have a little ‘wash/dry’ area so that people could at least wipe the wine out before they take them home. I’d totally take it home, dirty or shiny new 🙂

Are you having a bar? If so, that’s where I expect people would get their wine glasses from- unless you’re having servers come around for dinner wine?
If you have the budget for dinner wine glasses, great, if not, I like the bag/box idea.

I like the idea of having some bags or boxes that guests can put them in – usually I bring a small purse to a wedding, so a small bag would be great! Maybe something frosted?

Thanks guys! I like the idea of having a little box or bag people can take these home in, and having the MC announce that they are favors. The venue only comes with mugs.. and I don’t have any room in my budget to order any more glasses, so I guess it’ll have to do! Nice to know that other people have taken home favors like this before and it’s not too out of the ordinary 😉
