It’s going to double your expense if you have another whole set of glasses to give away.

I would either have a sign on each table letting people know the glasses are meant to be taken home, or have the MC make an announcemen.

I think most people would just make sure they were as dry as possible before taking them home at the end of the night.

I have taken favors like that dirty before. If you can afford it, have other glasses at the table. If you can’t, no big deal, people know how to handle situations like that. They’ll wipe them off & stick them in their purses.

Why not provide either a bag or box that they can put the glass in at the end of the night?

If your venue provides glasses for water/coffe/wine/etc, then maybe I’d set these on the table in a small box or with bag of kisses or something inside, so folks get that they’re favors and that they don’t need to use them. Otherwise, see if you could have a little ‘wash/dry’ area so that people could at least wipe the wine out before they take them home. I’d totally take it home, dirty or shiny new 🙂

Are you having a bar? If so, that’s where I expect people would get their wine glasses from- unless you’re having servers come around for dinner wine?

If you have the budget for dinner wine glasses, great, if not, I like the bag/box idea.

I like the idea of having some bags or boxes that guests can put them in – usually I bring a small purse to a wedding, so a small bag would be great!  Maybe something frosted?
