    I like the idea, but I don’t think it’s worth $18.50 each if they will only be able to chill the first bottle of wine.  I’m not gonna lie, I really want to get one of these for my kitchen now.  I always forget to put white wines in the fridge.

    I have a couple of these and they’re pretty good but they don’t keep the wine as chilled as an ice bucket would, and they are kind of annoying to keep taking out of the bottle all the time.

    Plus, any wedding that I have been to, the bottles don’t stay open for long before the wine is all gone 🙂

    @lifegirl:  This: annoying and messy, wouldn’t do it.

    It’s an interesting idea, but could be really messy.  Ice buckets are cheaper, simpler and you can sell them after.

    Awesome concept and GREAT gift idea (seriously, just bookmarked your link!!) but I think they could get messy and a little annoying at a wedding when being handled by a lot of guests – and are they made out of glass? I’d be a little concerned that they could get broken. Also, guests who haven’t seen them before might get confused and think a server needed to come by and open the bottle…

    I think it would be alot of hassle.

     

    However, if you do decide to get them, check ebay first, I’m seeing some for $16.50 with free shipping.

    EDIT – We are using ice buckets, and we’re going to make heart shaped icecubes to put in the buckets. There is also a fridge in our venue, so we plan to chill it overnight then put it in ice buckets.

    If there are even two people at a table drinking white wine, it won’t last long enough to worry about it.

    I wouldn’t spend the money.

    A simpler idea would be to chill terracotta tiles in the ice then place one of them under the bottle of wine.

    I think you’re going to have a hard time reselling those.

    Also, I think they would be annoying and messy.

    Also, we had white wine at our tables, and if the bottle is appropriately chilled beforehand, it is fine to leave it on the table without an ice bucket. It’ll be gone in like 10-20 minutes anyway.

    I love my Corcicles but this would be very costly as I doubt anyone would buy them used after the wedding. Also, they might in fact get thrown away…I almost threw one of mine away once. I left it in the bottle and put it in the recylcing bin. Luckily I remembered later though!

    @lovelyduckie:  I would not bother with these. We have one, and it looks cool but it honestly doesn’t do anything and heats up rather quickly.

    I say people honestly won’t care if their table wine is perfectly chilled, because most people just care that there’s wine! 😉
