    We didn’t have special toasting flutes.  It was one of those things I was hoping someone would buy us, but no one did so we just used regular glasses.

    We are just using the same flutes as everyone else. We are also just using a cake server from the caterer. We decided that having special ones just were something we cared about. We just saw it as an added expense and wanted to put that money toward something else.

    I’m hoping someone buys them as a gift, it is something I would like, I just would not like to spend the $$ on them.

    My mom found some at her store… apparently they were really expensive but she got them for like $15. I haven’t seen them yet, but I couldn’t care less whether we have them or not. It is nice to know my mom thought of us and is willing to give us some flutes ๐Ÿ™‚ I was very thankful!

    I wasn’t planning to use special toasting flutes, but a friend gave me these from Pier 1 at my bachelorette party (which was also a pseudo-shower, since I insisted on no shower! LOL)… they were appropriately “non-bridal” (for me!) so we went ahead and used them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My sister bought them for us from Tiffany’s as soon as she heard we were engaged. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a gift card and was afraid of getting weird looking flutes so we just bought ours and plan on having them engraved. 4 for $20 at BB&B is just fine by me!

    I bought mine because they were on sale.  I didn’t want to wait either.  So neat.

    My mom bought them for us to use at our engagement party shortly after the engagement. 

    When my parents were married they had silver plated champaign flutes engraved and she really wanted to give us some for our wedding. 

    So she searched and searched and searched every Macy’s up and down the eastern sea board and finally found some that she had shipped to our local store.  She is going to have them engraved for us to use at our wedding in *99* days!  YIKES!

    Fiance and I don’t even like champagne! 

    My mom offered to let me use theirs (my brother and sister-in-law did this also, so my mom thought it could be a neat tradition) but I’m sort of on the fence about it. 

    While I get the tradition, we are not going to be drinking wine or champagne anyway b/c we don’t like it. 

    It would be much more “us” for Fiance to have a pint of his favorite beer and me to have a girly mixed drink or iced tea ๐Ÿ˜€

    We weren’t going to have special toasting flutes because that’s just not something I care about.  But FI’s dad and stepmom got us these beautiful Waterford flutes for as an engagement present.  THey just so happen to match or color perfectly.  We’re not having champagne at the wedding so we’ll be filling them with something else.
