    I don’t know what they should be served in, but I would serve them in flutes. Just because it’s a shower and you wanna be a little fancy (at least I would wanna be a little fancy….)

    Either rent them or buy from Ikea. I think it would be a nice gesture. If you’re tight on money, the plastic ones will do. Smile

    If you already had wine glasses, I would say that’s good enough.  If you don’t for that price, I would buy the glass ones and you can resell them, or keep them for a NYE party or other celebration.

    Flutes are made to hold in the bubbles and keep the integrity of the drink. Anything sparkling should be in flutes. The bubbles come out to quickly in a goblet- though I use gobelts for Moscato at home cause I don’y own any flutes πŸ™‚

    I would rent the glass ones if it doesn’t hurt you much ($ wise) and use circular tags at the base to write names on so people know which is theirs.

    The second option would be plastic flutes from Party city – I don’t think anyone will mind. You wil have extras or you can sharpie names on them if ppl want.

    I voted for glass but now that I think about it….where is it being held? In someone’s home? If so, plastic doesnt sound so bad.

    Well I wouldn’t use just a regular/plastic cup.  Either use flutes or wine glasses (though flutes are preferred).  I would be fine with the plastic flutes.

    I vote for glass flutes!  I always serve my sparkling wines in flutes, but that’s mainly because I don’t get to use my flutes very often, so I love any opportunity to!

    Just throwing this thought out there. Does the bride already own flutes? If not, you could buy glass flutes, and then after the shower give them to her. I don’t know if this is tacky or not. (obviously clean them first etc.) Personally, I’m not a fancy person, and plasticware seems fine, but the IKEA deal is not that bad.

    @mrshunnybunches:  How fancy is this shower? Cause I’mma be real… we just had moscato at my friend’s shower and we drank that yumminess out of some clear plastic cups. I think the choice of how to serve it really is totally dependant on the level of formality of your event.

    Glass IKEA flutes, for sure. You could decorate them and use them as favors for each girl, too. Use paint pens to decorate or add monograms or dip them in glitter- obviously Pinterest has some great ideas!
