If you and your spouse are serious oenophiles, you may want to give out wineglass wedding favors as a keepsake from your wedding festivities.
Engraved Wineglass Wedding Favors
As one of the most popular drink for toasts and wedding festivities, wine wedding favors are sure to please any guest. Sparkling cider or juice can be served in the glass for those who do not imbibe. Place your wineglass favor at each table setting, so your guests are all sure to receive their gift.
Engraving the wineglass is sure to keep your wedding day in mind of your guests long after the last sip was drank. You can engrave the glass with your names, the date, or even a small picture that fits into a theme. Engraved wineglasses can be costly; but you can often receive significantly discounted rates for large orders.

Wineglass Favors on a Budget
As many brides know, staying on budget is a key part of wedding planning. Even if your favor budget is too small to allow for engraved glasses, do not despair. With a few simple touches, you can make any wineglass a favor to remember.First, be sure to purchase your wineglasses in bulk. Whether you order online or head to a discount store, ask for a lower price for buying over a certain number of glasses. You can choose to get glass or plastic glasses. If your wedding will have a lot of children, plastic may be a safer option (less chance of breakage). Be sure all children's glasses are filled with punch or soda.
Secondly, consider adding a wine glass charm to the stem of each glass. Choose something that fits into the theme or décor of your wedding. Western cowboy boots, palm trees, hearts, shoes, flowers, grapes, or leaves are good choices. You may also want to go with your last name initial for a wedding that focuses on monograms as its main decoration point.
Finally, add a small wedding favor tag thanking your guests for their loves and support on your special day. Make the tag white or other light color, then print the text in your wedding colors. Cut around the tag with shaped scrapbooking scissors, and tie onto the stem with curled ribbon.
