    @May2013Wedding:  If being green is a concern, I’d say rethink personalizing the glasses and opt for renting glassware or buying vintage glasses.  Not to be mean, but other than yourselves and possibly your parents, no one wants to have glasses with another couple’s names and wedding date on them.  The majority of your guests would take them home and put them promptly in the trash.

    You could take vintage glasses from thrift stores or even purchase mason jars – there are tons of them being used at weddings and then resold.  You could attach a cute little tag like with the “Grab a Glass and Grab a Drink” you mentioned printed on one side and your names and the date on the other so it’s personalized without being permanent.

    You’d have to clean them, but you could resell vintage glasses or if they were rentals, you’d still spend less than you would on  buying custom imprinted glasses.

    As a guest, I would wonder if this glass had been washed prior to being pressed into service as my only option. At the end of the night, I’d have to take home a sticky, possibly dripping glass, or try to wash it out in the bathroom prior. If at any point in the evening I switched drinks (wine to soda to water), I might want to rinse it out prior. I like being green but I just don’t really like this idea, sorry!
