    It would be lovely to use while at the reception, but after the reception I don’t think most people would have a use and/or a place for flutes with someone else’s names etched on them.  Maybe I’m too practical.

    we are going to do the same thing with mason jar mugs! So yes! I think it’s a good idea

    Honestly, I wouldn’t take mine if I was a guest. The idea is cute and having champagne flutes at home is functional. However, if I ever have to whip flutes out to toast for a personal moment I wouldn’t be inclined to use one that has someone’s wedding info on it. Maybe if the flutes weren’t engraved and had a removal ribbon or tag attached I’d be inclined to take them.

    Those are pretty cute, but honestly as a guest, I probably wouldn’t take it home. I really don’t have a need for a glass with someone else’s names and wedding date on it.

    I agree with 2ndtime.  Also, I like my flutes to match when I use them so these wouldn’t serve much of a purpose beyond taking up room in my cabinet.

    this was the favor I wanted to do and I did some thinking. Many guest will 4get to take it with them. instead I have opted to do a photobooth. I also was throwing around the idea of doing the glass but have it be a candle instead and have it for them when they are heading out.

    I agree with others, I’m not sure I would use it.  But that’s kind of how I feel about ALL wedding favors, unless I can eat it 🙂

    No – I wouldn’t like them as a favor.

    I planned my high school prom and we did these exact type of glasses as a favor with a really cool logo… my mom pulled it out just this past Christmas (totally forgot it existed) and it’s a pretty generic (party rental type) quality.  

    If I got one at a wedding, I’d immediately think ‘prom’ and it would ultimately go to Good Will

    @Ms.GoodEarth: Haha, I agree! I tend to leave most wedding favors at the wedding or stick them in the bottom of a drawer when I get home unless I can eat them. I never met an edible wedding favor I didn’t like. 🙂

    I don’t know, I like them! But not all of my wine glasses match – we’ve got a bunch from tastings, etc, that we’ve done. So I guess I wouldn’t see a wedding glass as much different.

    A couple we know did personalized “Cheers at _____’s wedding!” drink coozies. You might have been going for something more elegant, but that could get a lot of use.

    I likely wouldn’t take it home. If I did because I thought you were watching and I didn’t want to hurt your feelings, I would put it in the box for the next donation trip to the thrift shop.

    It just doesn”t make sense to me to be toasting moments in my life with a glass engraved with your names and wedding date. I have a lovely set of crystal though, so maybe if I didn’t have any, I might think differently.
