feel that I need special toasting flutes. I don’t know why. I guess that I just keep getting so much wedding stuff that I feel like I need to have a boundary somewhere. I don’t think that toasting flutes are very special to me … plus we are renting our table settings with really nice glasses.
What do you think?
I cannot imagine I will think of glasses as being so special.

I don’t think I’m going to get them either. For us, the money is better spent somewhere else.

My friends got us Waterford Crystal toasting flutes as an engagement present! However, if we had to buy them ourselves, I don’t know if I would spend that much :oP

I think it’s a person by person thing, so it really just depends on how you feel- there’s no right or wrong answer.

I’m definitely not having them. We are registering for some nice crystal, that will be enough for us!
Toasting flutes would be so far down my list of spending priorities. Of course, if they were a gift I’d probably use them (and then worry that the venue would lose or break them!)

We won’t be purchasing any, but people may end up buying some for us… if not, we’ll gladly use the ones the venue provides! 🙂

Mr. Mary Jane’s grandmother gave us a set of toasting flutes at my bridal shower. I wasn’t planning to buy any, so this was a very thoughtful gift!

Thanks for the replies! Ok, if they are a gift than that makes them special … if I’m buying them than in my head I’m thinking “Waste of money … I wanted this and this instead.” LOL. So the flutes as a gift is so thoughtful! I never thought about that!

No, our budget is limited and this just isn’t a priority. When my fiance proposed, he had some champagne glasses in the hotel room. I plan to put some ribbon on those and use that; sentimental and free!

definately if they are gifts, but the only reason I would buy them myself is if they were really really awesome…like if they matched the decor of our kitchen so perfectly that I would have bought them to display anyways.

I bought a very unique set from carlton cards and I LOVE THEM, they are something I will always display and use on anniversaries, but if it’s not a priority for you than screw it, don’t waste your money.

We said no to this tradition. I figured with our crew they were more likely to get lost or broken than anything… Better to do that with rentals!

We’re not planning on buying any. It would have been a complete waste of money for us and I didn’t think we’d really care about them afterwards. Where on earth would I even display our toasting flutes, I have no idea. Pointless for us 🙂 If they’re not special to you, then who cares?
