@Eireann:  I registered for gorgeous, Waterford, lead-crystal toasting flutes, and I received them as a shower gift from a friend. I had no desire to mar them in any way by having them personalized.

ETA: I should note that I don’t think it’s silly for someone to do this if they want to. I just personally did not want to do it with mine.

My mom bought us some really cute champagne flutes from etsy. They say Bride and Groom on the base but thats about as personalized as they get. I almost wish they didn’t because i would use them more often…then again it may be something really neat to pass down since they don’t have our names on them.

We personalized ours….and ended up not even using them! We didn’t do a cake cutting, and planned on toasting with them at midnight (NYE wedding) but instead just drank from the flutes the servers handed out.  I was so bummed πŸ™

So I say NOT worth it.  But we did use them a few weeks ago for our first anniversary!

I think personalizing them makes them less useful. I’d rather spend the extra money on getting a higher quality pair.

LOL I didn’t even think it was worth it to purchase a set of champagne flutes, I just used the ones my caterer provided.  Same with the cake knife πŸ™‚  I received 3 sets of champagne flutes as gifts that I didn’t register for, though, 2 of which were returned but the 3rd didn’t have a gift receipt.  They’re Waterford, I suspect its a re-gift, but I’ve got them now.

I think it’s fine as long as the cost isn’t crazy. I’ve seen them for WAY LESS than things remembered, like $20 for the glasses including personalization. That’s a price I can live with. Each year on your anniversary you can pull them out and toast with them… that’s the plan anyways. If it’s pricey, I’d say pass.

@totheislnds:  We used ours for our anniversary! It was nice.  The champagne we bought was disgusting though, but you can’t win them all! πŸ™‚

We did. We picked out a pair (set with cake cutting devices) from Things Remembered. Mother-In-Law got them for us. She was really into stuff like that. We plan to use them for special occasions, too. Really, it’s just another thing to remember the day. A lot of these things don’t really matter right now, but in 20 years, I’m sure we’ll appreciate them πŸ™‚

We didn’t personalize ours. We didn’t even get super-fancy ones, we got them from Tommy Bahama (fitting for our beach wedding).
