I was just wondering what people do nowadays. Did you get your wedding toasting flutes engraved? Did you also get the metal blade on your cake serving knife engraved also? Or just the flutes? I know you can do both, but we aren’t sure if we should just do the flutes or both the flutes and the knife.
Thank you for your help!

Not even something we thought of, to be honest.

They belonged to the venue…they didn’t offer for us to keep them and it never entered my mind to ask. So no. If you want to why not?

Didn’t get out flutes engraved, and not getting cake cutter, etc (they are provided by the venue). We bought some standard flutes to keep but aren’t doing much more than that.

My Fi’s mom bought us our cake cutting set and his aunt got the flutes. She works at a high end jewelry shop that also sells those items and they are getting them engraved.
Not something I would have thought of, but if they want to do it then works for me! I think they are doing our names and the date.

Im not worried about our toasting flutes or cake cutters. One less thing to worry about transporting/ breaking and they are provided. If I come across some beautiful for cheap I may make the purchase because we do use them often. I wouldnt get them engraved if I got either.

We got them engraved because an aunt wanted to get them for us special from Waterford, so I felt like they would def be something that we will keep and it would be a sweet reminder each anniversary/new year/random champagne night. But we are also the sort of people who plan on using our china semi-regularly and frequently have “fancy drink nights” with friends or just ourselves, so I thought it would be worth it.
But if you don’t really plan on using them in the future, or aren’t really sentimental, I would not unless it’s basically free!

We won’t be engraving ours, it’s an added expense that we can cut out. There are so many other items with our names and date on them that adding to it would eventually lead to overkill. Our cake topper has them, as do our centerpieces, card box, etc. Things that people will take the time to look at or bring home with them make it worth it to us.

…we just used regular champagne glasses like everyone else. Do people really buy flutes just for that day? Seems like a waste.

Not even crossed my mind. We will just use normal glasses like everyone else. And a normal knife for cake cutting. Suppose it’s a nice thing to do if you’d like them as a momento.
