    Rafissch:  If you are considering plastic glasses for wine, is there a reason you didn’t look at the stemless wine glasses from Smarty Had a Party?

    Rafissch:  it all goes down the same. I m happy with any glass as long as it has some alcohol in it lol

    Rafissch:  For a public park, I totally understand wanting to deal with as little glass as possible, it’s crazy that glass stemless is cheaper than plastic! Plastic stemless would be my #1 choice, but I think you can go with either of those and be fine. I voted #1, but now that I think about it, you might as well go with the decorated ones.

    Square is hard to drink out of, especially after a few. Other than that, I’d drink my wine out of a sippy cup if I had too 😉

    I voted for #2. I like the modern look the stripes add.

    Rafissch:  If you use the taller cups the bartender may fill the glasses with more wine; which will eat into your savings. I voted for the shorter square cups. I think they look nicer and they may save on waste.

    Rafissch:  my personal preference would be for plastic ‘wine glasses’ ie ones that look like actual wine glasses. I really don’t like drinking wine out of a tumbler, it just feels wrong and I find it gets warmer more quickly from where you’ve been holding it. 

    Otherwise, I would go with the first glass which looks rounder, and I prefer that it’s plain.

    I would prefer to drink my wine out of something with a stem. I dislike stemless glassware for wine because your hand changes its temperature, especially white.

    Choosing between the two, the first on is nicer because its plain and a bit rounder.

    I like glasses with stems for drinking wine at home but agree an outdoor wedding you may have wind issues so stemless are probably better. I like option 2 from a style perspective but agree with PP, I’ll drink wine out of anything!

    Rafissch:  I really doubt you will have that many breakages; we host parties fairly regularly and on average maybe around 2-3 glasses get broken,it’s no big deal. It isn’t like people will be dropping them left right and centre. 

    I know what you mean about the two part glasses looking cheap but honestly, IMPO most plastic glasses do. As a guest I would really appreciate having the option as I just really hate drinking wine out of anything other than a stemmed glass. Could you maybe get some of each so guests have a choice?
