I am a pretty permissive parent and I wouldn’t mind my kid getting that as a favor. I am serving milk in martini glasses with a mini chocolate chip cookie to the 30 kids at my wedding for cocktail hour. And we may do child friendly jello shots for cocktail hour too. but that is ME and I know my family and friends will not be offended! Since it is a classy elegant affair it should be ok is my thought.

I think as long as you have an obviously kid friendly candy – maybe Hersheys Kisses – in the kid glasses, you should be fine.

There have been many previous posts about personalized gifts as favors. Many of them end up left on the table at the reception or get donated or tossed when the guest arrives home.

I would not use or keep a personalized wine glass. I would not want one glass that was different from the rest of my crystal.

In the interest of full disclosure, I admit that I think most favors are unnecessary and a complete waste of money.

i would toss the glass. i wouldnt keep someone else’s monogram displayed. i havent gotten a wineglass but my cousin did shotglasses with their names and wedding date, and that went in the trash. i dont think you have to go all out with the favor by doing a glass. i love edible favors—maybe just simply do some cordials for adults and regular chocolate for kids. im always happy with edible favors.

I am having shot glasses as my favors and I never thought people would throw them away, I did think to not order one for EVERYone cause not all my guests take shots. For 200 adults I was only gonna order 125, I always break my wine glasses and would love a free one, but yeah, I used to chair the bar at my sons school auction and a lot of the parents said to stop doing the wine glass thing cause they toss them 🙁 I am still doing my shot glasses though because I want them, and if I have like 50 left over, I would really be ok with that…cause when we do shots at parties we always need LOTS of shot glasses:)

Could you do bottle stoppers?  Kids don’t usually care about wedding favours anyways and would probably just give it to their parents.

I think maybe plain wine glasses would be cute and the sherry glasses for the kids would be cute.  Fill them up with the candy you liked and for the kids they have those champagne bottle bubbles. Or even if you want to go really easy/cheap.themed, just those champagne bottle looking bubble bottles (they are about an inch tall) it would fit with the theme but also the kids would LOVE them, and even the adults! I ALWAYS love bubbles! 🙂
