    I probably would except… I don’t drink alcohol, or very minimally and never at weddings.  So they’re sort of pointless for people like me.  Much more likely to reuse the straight glass than the other which is clearly for alcohol.  And you’d probably still need to make it very clear that these are your favors, not just a special glass you venue happens to have on hand.

    Also what if people want to change their drink? Do they get a new glass?  New drink poured right into old glass?  Cleaned in between?  Just food for thought!

    brit2016:  What price have you found? No point in wasting your time with links that are more expensive.

    As far as the glasses thmselves are concerned, if you plan on your guests using them during the reception, you need way more than 350- the number of guests. People put their glass down, can’t find it, get another one-all night. Plus, there is no way of identifying their glass.

    If buying glasses is cheaper then renting, I would leave them plain and save on the personalization cost.

    I wouldn’t take it home. All my glasses match: what would I do worth a solitary glass? They’re cute, but you’ll probably end up with a lot of leftovers.

    brit2016:  Personally, I am in the camp of just skip the favors. ESPECIALLY if you have to order 350- thats a TON.

    That said, these are better than others I have seen. My only concern is for people who are traveling. If I was flying – I would probably leave it.

    Yes, I would take these as long as I got to take at least two (of one type of glass). I don’t really like lone single cups taking up my cabinet.

    Those are cute! I agree, I’d give each guest a set of two glasses or skip this and put the money toward something else. One is kind of a funny number to have in the cabinet (especially for wine glasses; shot glasses, less of a big deal).

    To be honest though, we skipped favors entirely and nobody missed them!

    brit2016:  These are adorable and I love that they do not have your names or the Wedding date on them. Guest do not need a set, 1 per guest is fine… remember favors are not required so 1 per guest is fine.

    One of my best friends in NY had a massive wedding.. I am talking over 500 people. Anyway, she gave away these wine glasses:

    (https://www.dollartree.com/household/kitchen-dining/Barware/Clear-Wine-Glasses-with-Facet-Cut-Stems-10-oz-/500c526c1111p310849/index.pro)

    We ordered them online from DollarTree. The one’s that she received were by a company called Libby (decent) and she only paid $1 for each one. Only 6 showed up broken and were replaced after a quit trip to the local Dollar Tree. She then took them to a local laser engraver in town and worked out some deal where she only spent something like $2 on each glass. I’d look into it if that is the route you want to go.

    I was thinking of personalized glasses as well, but I found them too much out of my budget. Anyway, I found mason jars marked down to $1 each! So I grabbed 9 boxes of them, and we found cute wooden chalkboard tags / twine…. We are using the names on the tags as placecards as well, so it saves us money there… And a friend of mine who does caligraphy will be handwriting all of our guests names in liquid gold chalk… So it’ll look a lot nicer than my handwriting above haha

    All in all, we spent $58 on the glasses, and $39 for the wooden tags!

    Men can drink their beer, and ladies can sip their wine 😀

    All of my glasses match (with the exception of my epic Disney coffee mug collection).  I wouldn’t take them because I don’t want odd mismatched glasses in my cupboard.

    If, by chance, it didn’t shatter as I drunkenly stumble back to my hotel room, this would go straight to the Goodwill pile.

    In general, anything that has “want” and “cheap” in the same sentence it’s probably not a hit. Who WANTS something CHEAP? Take home? Sure. But want? Na.

    I’m in the “I don’t want or need any favor” side. My husband and I don’t drink alcohol. We used to  take favors, and then throw out the personalized ones; if not personalized, we put them in the donation box, in our closet. Now we don’t even bother to take them, unless they’re edible, of course.

    brit2016:  you could also use them as place cards. Put a glads at each guests spot with a tag attached for their name.  Just a thought… Also I like the design.
