Outdoor wedding

Hi Ladies

I am having my wedding outdoors on our family's property. What did everyone do for glasses? Since the bar will also be outside.. Having fresh glasses isn't really an option. Did you tell your guests to use the same glass? I am having a very formal classy wedding so I would like to phrase it in a way it doesn't seem cheap. Let me know!


Thanks!

    I have heard in some cases having your names on them, that's maybe a way to go. This way your guests will keep the glasses with them all of the time

    I like the stemless wine glass and if you choose to personalize it with your date, that's a nice wedding favour. I think you need to consider how to make your guests be able to mark it as theirs considering they would be all the same. Also would breakage be a concern?

    I've been to a barn wedding where once you got there you were given a glass (this one it was a mason jar with a ribbon) and you got to keep it and it was your glass for the night...

    you could also personalize them, you could even set them up at tables with people's names on it and then you have a favour, glass and a seating plan all done at once.

    The wedding favour is a cool idea. You could also pair it with the name card idea as your seat prompt. If you have one of those 'pick your glass' signs and once people see there's no glasses at their spot, they'll get the hint.

    I love the idea of the signs for the glasses. What a cool idea. What did people do for weddings before Pinterest?

    I love the stemless wine glass idea! Using them for a favor is my idea. I don't want to seem cheap..so are those an ok wedding favor? I would have them custom made with something like.. ''Eat, Drink, and be Married" with our last name and wedding date?

    Love the sign suggestions too! I will be using one of those

    I agree with this. You could even purchase mailing labels and leave them near the glasses with a pen or marker so your guests can write their name on a mailing label and stick it to the glass.

    I would look into stemless wine glasses for your guests if you are trying to stay away from the rustic vibe.

    I still like the idea of a sign, but instead of chalkboard/wood, I would have it on a white background or something like sign #2, depending if you have a theme

    I’ve seen people doing this with a copper or rose gold mule which might fit your vibe a bit better although also could be a bit more money. Bonus is it could double as a wedding favour

    You could definitely use this same idea with regular glasses. Another option I found searching pinterest is custom plastic cups. I found a link here

    Thanks for the ideas.. however I am trying to stay FAR away from rustic. So the mason jars to me seems too country rustic for my overall feel. Any other ideas?

    I agree with Tori as well. This is a great opportunity to use the guest's glass as their wedding favour, and also function as their glass for the evening. I don' think it comes off as cheap. BUT I do think it gives off a more relaxed vibe and maybe not as classy or elegant as you're hoping.

    I've seen lots of photos around of these mason jars with the little chalk board area, which definitely is more "rustic" and laid back. But you can get creative and DIY some super cute and elegant tags with the guest's name and table #.

    I totally agree with Tori. Having a sign letting them know that it'll be their glass for the night would be the most appropriate.

    You could have the glasses filled with a celebratory drink, after the ceremony, which would include their name and table # on a tag or flag, as well as the sign letting them know it's their one and only glass for the evening.

    I hope that you share what you've come up with! I'd love to see the end look Smiley smile

    I'm thinking that the best way to word it will just let people know by putting up one of these signs:
