When it comes to deciding which wedding toasting flutes to buy for your big day, you are faced with a lot of options. You have the choice between Waterford Crystal and Cashs Crystal, SchottsZwiesel and Riedel Sommeliers. You can opt for flutes with a Celtic knot, or flutes without any embellishments at all. Though the flute you choose won’t make or break your day, it can enhance it, as it can lend that much needed “final touch” to an already glorious occasion. If you are having difficulty deciding which champagne flutes to buy for your big day, use the tips below to make the right choice:
Start With Color
Despite popular belief, not all wedding toasting flutes are clear glass. Flutes can come in many colors, including but not limited to blue glass, red glass, green glass and purple glass. If you’re someone who enjoys a pop of color, or who wants to make a statement during your wedding toast, opt for a flute that that is just as colorful as your personality. A color flute can really add a much needed contrast to a “white wedding.”
Decide on Enhancements
From etchings to stem decorations, there are numerous ways that a wedding flute can be personalized. If color is not your thing, but if you still want to add a flair of personality to your champagne flutes, look into stem embellishments, or even consider having the glass engraved. If you want just a hint of flair, look into flutes that have unique stems, such as ones that taper off to a point at the bottom and that require a silver stand to hold them.
Consider Your Budget
Though budget shouldn’t be a huge concern for your big day, it is unrealistic to assume that money doesn’t play a factor into what pieces you choose and choose not to invest in. Wedding flutes vary in price, with some costing as little as $100 for a set, and others going as high as into the thousands. What flutes you buy will ultimately depend on what you can and are willing to pay.
When it comes to your big day, you want every last detail to be perfect. Your wedding toasting flutes can be the icing on the cake to an already wonderful occasion, which is why it is so important that you give careful thought and consideration to which flutes you invest in. If you’re having trouble picking out the flutes for your big day, consider the above factors to narrow down your choices.
