I need some opinions. I am trying to finalize the last part of my bridesmaid gifts and I cannot decide. I want to get my bridesmaids, myself and our two mother’s wine glasses to use the morning of, and if they want to use them throughout the day great. But, I am torn between two very different designs.
I love the idea of getting ETCHED ones, since I feel like they will last a lot longer than vinyl ones, except if broken. I know our mother’s will appreciate them alot more, since they are a little more sentimental than my girls are. BUT, the VINYL ones are so darn cute!
I also thought of getting our mother’s the “etched” ones for sentimental reasons, and my bridesmaids the vinyl ones.
**BTW they will all say their names, title and wedding date, regardless of what the pictures look like in the ones I posted.

I like the etched ones the best! Simple but cute. Also, I would prefer to only have my name on it and not the wedding date/title on it, but that’s just me.

@hollyberry4: No, that’s great info! Thank you!

I like both, which isn’t helpful, but I was planning on doing the vinyl ones- I didn’t know they were vinyl though! I was planning on getting glass paint and doing it- is that not how they make them? lol I just bought a lot of supplies for nothing otherwise!

We’re doing etched wine glasses as favors. I vote etched!

I vote for etched and their name only 🙂
Most folks don’t care to have things with someone else’s wedding date or their role at that event on it to keep forever. Well, I am at least one of those folks and I know that there are more out there.

I say etched with name only.
My got my girls wine glasses from Things Rememberd with their first name inital etched on it as part of their Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts but also gave them margarita glasses with their name & bridesmaid on it for the bachelorette party. They loved both of them but I tink the etched is definitely better.

The etched ones are much prettier but you may want to consider getting each recipient a pair of wine glasses, and etching in a generic lovely notion like “much love” or “happiest times” rather than names. A pair of matching wine glasses would be a really sentimental gift that actually gets used. A single wine glass that doesn’t match anything will eventually end up at the goodwill. Matching glasses with one person’s name on them are kind of weird— Hillary doesn’t really want to serve her date Ken a glass of wine in a Hillary glass. For some weird reason, a pair of monogrammed glasses would probably be just fine though.

I like the etched ones — and I’d prefer to just have my first name on the glass. No wedding date, etc. It’s your wedding not everyone else’s, yaknow? They’ll maybe be more tempted to bust their special glass out afterwards if you leave your wedding info off of it.

I was given a wine glass very similar to the vinyl ones (though my was created by the bride with glass paint!) and it’s really cute. It has my name, dress and bridesmaid on it. I’m sure I won’t use it that much, but it’s cute and we have a bar so it’s a fun little piece of decor and memorabilia. It depends on your girls, but like others said really one wine glass isn’t going to be used that much, so don’t worry about practicality at all. Just get what you like best, this is for fun! Keep that in mind when it comes to cost as well. If your girls have nicknames or attributes about themselves that they like you could get those on there instead, they may be tempted to use their “awesome possum” wine glass more than one with a date and dress on it ;0)
