Glassware As a Wedding Favor

Glassware As a Wedding Favor

Wedding favors are becoming an essential item in a wedding. They are the perfect way to say thank you to all your guests for attending the wedding and reception. Glassware has become increasingly more popular among brides as a wedding favor. Not only is glassware chic and stylish it is an eco-friendly alternative to paper or plastic cups.

Nowadays there are many styles of glassware to choose from tall champagne flute to short shot glasses. Not only can you find the traditional straight stemmed glasses but there are glasses with stems that are colored, twisted, frosted and even styled to include air bubbles. From champagne flutes to shot glasses, pint glasses to brandy snifters, your options are endless and with all of these being able to customized for all your needs with colors and date to match any theme.

After you decide on the glassware that you want to give you may want to add a few finishing touches to it. Perhaps your family is steeped in tradition, then why not fill the glasses with Jordan almonds. This tradition dates back to ancient Italian and Greek weddings. Fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life; the sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds’ life will be more sweet than bitter. Maybe you want to modernize this candy giving tradition then why not M&Ms or skittles. Or perhaps you have a favorite candy that you would love to share or a favorite candy of someone that has pasted on that you would like to honor on this special day.

Another great idea is to use the glassware as a candle holder many companies will fill personalized shot glasses or champagne flutes with candles and you can even get them to match your wedding colors. This is a useful idea that can be re-used after the candle has been burned away. Perhaps you are having a beach themed wedding then why not fill brandy snifters with sea shells and place a tea light candle on top. You can even light the candle to give a warm glow to the wedding this makes a wonderful centerpiece that also doubles as the favor for your guests to take home.

Wedding glassware can be incorporated into most any theme. If your wedding is during the winter then why not place a small evergreen in each glass pilsners will work great for this as their tall stature adds to the look of the evergreen. Plants symbolize new beginnings and fresh starts and the wonderful smell of fresh evergreen will add to the ambiance of the wedding. Don’t worry though you don’t have to use dirt that can be messy and take away from the look of your wedding plant gels are readily available and come in a variety of colors to match any theme. They are non-toxic and biodegradable and add an artistic effect to the glass. If the wedding is in the spring then a single flower floating in water placed in a martini glass would make a wonderful addition to your place setting.

Glassware is becoming the new favor for the 21st century with all the styles and colors that it comes in it is perfect for any wedding. It is inexpensive and easily personalized, so let you imagination wander and see what you can come up with using this great median.
