Sorry, no, I wouldn’t want to bring one home as a guest. I have tons of wine glasses and wouldn’t want one with someone else’s info engraved on it. Then again, I don’t like any engraved favors.

Sorry but that’s a no from me. Your guests don’t want your names or wedding date on their favor. Those are super cute for you and your husband, but as a guest I would just leave that on the table.

Anything with your names on it is a no go.

I don’t even like wine, so nope. I’ve never cared if my glassware matches though. I’d just use it until I dropped it if at all. 

Your best bet is always food, preferably a local treat. Glass is bad for travel.

natasha0b :  Its prob MOSTLY engraving, but also wine glass. how are you gonna take that home?? I’m sure as fuck not putting a dirty glass into my purse at the end of the night lol. What do you do with 1 or 2 glasses of this type?

It sounds like you’re just trying to throw away money – put it elsewhere! I’d rather have top shelf open bar in a plain glass than a cash bar in this engraved glass. (example)

Both.  I don’t want to travel back home with breakables (whether it’s a plane trip or just rolling around the floor of my car on the drive home.  If I’m supposed to drink out of this glass all night, then I’m supposed to either rinse it out and dry it before leaving the reception or travel home with a dirty wine glass with the last dregs of my drink?  And lastly, my cupboards are already full of my own glassware.  I don’t want a wine glass with someone else’s names and wedding date that doesn’t match the rest of my glassware. 

I’d either leave it behind or donate it to Goodwill (and this isn’t really as hypothetical as it sounds – I’ve left these behind before and donated them to Goodwill before).  And based on the number of these types of glasses (or insulated mugs or koozies or what have you) that I’ve seen at Goodwill or the DAV or “accidentally” left behind in the breakroom or water cooler, I’m pretty sure I”m not alone.

This is the sort of thing that sounds cute for YOU.  But a favor should be something with your guests in mind.

I would not take home a favor that was personalized with someone else’s names, initials, wedding date, etc.  

Also,  I have no use for a single glass that wouldn’t match anything else in my bar cabinet.  (I have a full set of nice quality, matching red and white wine glasses already.)

Nothing with your wedding date or your names. This goes for your bridal party gifts too.

 

And please don’t make me take a used, dirty wine glass home as my “favor.”

 

When it comes to favors, I’m in the “give me food or give me nothing” camp.

Not gonna bring home anything with engravings, sorry. Wine glass I don’t mind that much if they’re already packed in a box and not expected to be used for the night, BUT if they’re going to be used, how am I going to bring a dirty glass home?

Yeah like others said it’s a combo of having to travel home with a fragile item and the engraving. I don’t want anything that has someone else’s name on it. Go with a food item. Can’t go wrong with candy, cookies, snacks, etc.

It’s both. I don’t want anything engraved with your wedding details, and I don’t want one odd glass.

It’s kind of odd that most couples look forward to replacing their hodge podge of items with sets for which they have registered, yet you think your guests are going to want odd glasses.

I honestly don’t want anything enagraved with someone else’s info. If these were gifts at a wedding, I would take it to be polite, but it would quickly end up in the trash. 

Pretty much the only favors I get excited for are food related.  We did little boxes of macarons.
