I am not sentimental. I personally don’t think they are worth it, but if they are something you believe will make your day extra special, do it!

My Mother-In-Law bought us toasting flutes – she thought it was important to have them…we didn’t. They are lovely and a little larger than regular champagne flutes (she bought them at Simon Pierce, so they are handmade and were $$$), but honestly – they are too tall to fit in the cabinet with the other champagne flutes, so they are in a box in our closet and have been since the wedding.

I like the idea of using them on our anniversary or other special occasion, but, meh, we’ll probably forget and just use our everyday glasses! ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you are sentimental and they are important to you – go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

mmmmmmmm, champagne!

Sorry – I don’t have pics yet – but they are SO worth it.  GET THEM!!!

I wasn’t exactly sure if I wanted them or not, I thought they were one of those things that weren’t 100% necessary.

We ended up walking past some at Macy’s that Fiance liked – so we got them.  

I’m SO glad we did.  I loved drinking out of them and it made our table look extra special.  I can’t wait to see photos of them, etc!!

These are the ones we bought – Vera Wang With Love

I’d file this under “no one will notice them but you.”  That said — hey, you’re the bride ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t have pictures with me here at work but we got these toasting flutes from Things Remembered.  They aren’t fancy crystal or anything but they still cost way more than most champange glasses.  I LOVED them and love now having them as a keepsake as well!

They also matched our cake cutting set and they all looked really nice together.

I personally don’t think they’re worth it and won’t get them on my own.  That being said, if I receive them as a gift, I’ll definitely use them.

My Mother-In-Law gifted us with Waterford crystal toasting flutes.

 

Here’s how they photographed during the toasts at our reception:

 

I LOVED having them, and I’m very pleased to have them as a sentimental memento of the wedding and to use whenever we have something to celebrate in the future. But that’s easy for me to say since we didn’t pay for them. I don’t think I’d have lobbied for us springing for them ourselves.

As for the height, they are indeed too tall to fit in the cabinet, but that’s why they come from Waterford in a lovely storage box. Once we purchase a nice china cabinet to display our wedding china, they will go on display in there, and I expect they’ll look gorgeous in among the plates and bowls and crystal candlesticks.

I bought mine from CB2.com for $5 each. They were etched and fabulous. We tied some ribbon and flowers around them and they turned out great. I still have them, and they are still special to me, but I saved LOTS!

we had cute kate spade toasting glasses – and never used them at the reception!  well… we had them but we didn’t use them for the actual toasting and thus weren’t in any photos!  It didn’t really bother me.  I could have done without.

Ooh! I’m so torn on this!  SO had toasting flutes for his last wedding, and isn’t too keen on the idea of them this time around.  We have a ridiculous amount of stemware, and he keeps pointing out that the last thing we need is more.  lol!  I get it, but I think I’m going to cave and do something special, because I’m a sentimental gal! 

@IvyClimb: Yours are beautiful!

We arent having a champagne toast just a “whatever you have in hand toast” so for us they don’t even make sense.  Not having a champagne toast is a cost savings.

If I really wanted I could bring two of our glasses we registered for. They are nice lenox.
