I think they are totally unneccesary. Nobody will notice, and they will likely do nothing but collect dust at your home afterward. We skipped this entirely!

In my opinion, I wouldn’t spend money on fancy champagne glasses… unless you really really think it’s important. I assure you, nobody else cares. That being said, my mom bought us some extremely expensive champagne glasses as a present. I was like, oh ok thanks 🙂 $40 does not seem that much to me though, especially as a memoir from the wedding!

We got the nice ones we loved at Macys but skipped the engraving. We use them any time we have champagne at home now! New Years, anniversary, the list goes on! I’d buy the ones you love and skip the engraving, because YOU know they’re your wedding glasses, and that makes it special without having to be engraved to remind you!

In my opinion, no. Ours are $12ea from Crate and Barrel, but they look like they could be $75+. I know for a fact that we’ll never use ours again, so I’m not spending lots of $$ on them.

I would just get something nice and simple but wouldnt worry about paying extra for engraving

I don’t think anyone’s really going to notice the lack of engraving… especially if they’re drinking champagne, too!

I totally bought four glasses I liked from http://www.smartyhadaparty.com for like $11.99 (for all FOUR)

I feel like it was something I wanted to buy for us, but wasn’t wanting to spend much on…

Buy a nice crystal pair that you’ll use at least twice a year for the next 50 years instead of a cheaper pair that you’ll engrave and never use again.

My future SIL sent us flutes from Tiffany’s and we’ll use them for an engagement present.  I wouldn’t have bought them otherwise.
