Toasting flutes that are all kinds of AWESOME

By on Jun. 22nd

Ah, the tradition of the special bride and groom toasting glasses. Come can see toasting flutes as a super-traditional, Wedding Industrial Complex-induced purchase. For offbeat brides who decide to go this route, however, it can be an excuse to introduce one more element of awesome into their wedding. As always, you do not NEED anything like this, but if you WANT to add this element to your wedding, here are a few ridonkulously cool toasting flute options, including dragons, optical illusions, and even, yes even, Mason Jars. First let's start with my favorite glasses of all…

When these dragon glasses are set together the dragons nuzzle, their tails entwine, and the space between them becomes a heart. OMG! Nuzzles and hearts AND you can also get the flutes in different colors to either match your wedding scheme or represent your favorite color.

Don't have to worry about getting carried away and breaking fragile stemware with these Nambé champagne flutes made of mirror-polished, durable metal alloy, that won't crack or chip if knocked over. So party hard with these bad boys.

For all you Irish/Scottish/Welsh couples out there, these Celtic charm toasting flutes are pretty damn perfect for your Celtic weddings.

Here's a set of four wine flutes, each etched with a different design: swirls, vertical stripes, horizontal stripes, or polka dots. And each glass features a bridal party member's title: Bride, Groom, Maid of Honor, and Best Man.

Here's something weird and unconventional, and I kinda like it! You could customize the look of the vase by filling it with ice, rose petals, colored sand, or other small decorations to fit whatever theme you're rocking.

Check out the interlocking heart action. I like these because even separately they look cool, but together they form like Voltron and look even cooler.

Red Waterford champagne flutes with hearts! These are decadent and so sweet.

Here's a more subtle nod to the heart, combined with a super sleek styling with these Lenox toasting flutes.

How about these golden toasting goblets, perfect for your Renn Faire or fairy tale wedding.

Are you a musical couples? Interesting, so are these wine glasses!

The funky optical illusion-y double wall on these glasses have form AND function. The double walled design keeps the champagne bubbly and cold, sip after sip, and remains condensation free.

Ooh, these John Rocha Black Cut flutes radiate mystery with their high gloss black crystal surface. I love how the crystal band of funky cuts look like some sort of machinery.

This set of two champagne glasses are crafted of hand-blown glass with clear cups and funky colored bases. They also have a pink and green set.

From colored bases, to colored tops! I love these cherry blossom flutes in blue.

These nickel-plated glitter toasting flutes are pretty much the definition of rock and freaking roll.

These Swarovski crystal toasting flutes are doing my head in with their prettiness factor. I imagine royalty sipping out of these babies.

From royalty to … backwoods? Check the hell out of these Mason jar flutes!

I love that these two flutes don't match exactly, but they are, indeed, part of a set. Aw! Kinda like the two of YOU!
