Fiance and I are both big beer nerds. We’re getting custom pint glasses made as favors and I’m trying to decide between these two options…
Date or no date? Which looks better?
(FYI these are hops)

I vote no names, no date. Way too many personalized favors are tossed out or given to the thrift shop.

I tend to agree with @julies1949: I dont like “one offs” of glasses frame etc because they dont go with my own set, which means I wont use them at dinner and it takes up space in my cabinet. If it didnt have names and dates I would take it as a water glass but with names and dates I would leave it behind likely. (unless it were my sisters name etc) I may love you as a couple, but I dont need you on my glassware.

@julies1949: @ThreeMeers: Thanks, we’re decided on this as a favor, it’s more of a question of whether to include the date or not.

I agree with the other posters that no names or dates is best. If you definitely want names then I think you should add the date as well (looks less like I randomly decided to buy a glass with other people’s names on it).

I like it with the date, if it was just the name it’s a little too personal, like someone stole a glass belonging to Emily and Sean lol, with the dates it’s a nice little reminder.

I’m not crazy about stuff with other people’s names on it either (unless I can eat it), but if you’re going to do names, you might as well do the date, too!

@subjunctivitis: I know you say you’ve decided, but I’ve gone to plenty of weddings and most of the time, at least 80% of the favors are left because people just don’t want something with other people’s names/dates on the items. I think it would be really cool if you had the hops print on the glasses, and then a paper band around each glass with the name & date logo. That way you can still have your names & date on the favor, but it won’t be permanent and I’m sure a higher percentage of your favors will actually be taken.

I say no personalization!

I voted for date. The pint glasses are a cute idea. My suggestions would be your LAST name and under that write “est. 2012”

So….. again…. really wasn’t looking for opinons on whether or not to personalize, we both have our heart set on this. Probably going to go with something more like the following:

@purple_sofia: Aw, I really like that idea. I ran it past Fiance just now but he’s become attached to the first names.
@September29: Thanks! Our drinking glasses in our apartment are pint glasses from different places we’ve been etc. and some of our friends do the same.
