Toasting flutes that are all kinds of AWESOME

Posted by

Ah, the tradition of the special bride and groom toasting glasses. Some 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!

Comments on Toasting flutes that are all kinds of AWESOME

  1. I DIY have hand painted flutes–trying to upload a pic. How do I do that in comments?

  2. Or for those of us without a bazillion dollars, might I recommend a couple cheap glass flutes, a bottle of glass etching fluid, and a paint brush. Also, don’t buy the wide champagne glasses, only ever get flutes. Wide glasses will cause your bubbly to lose its bubble faster.

    • No worries, I made sure to keep all the bazillion dollar flutes off this list. 😉 There are pairs that range from $19.95 (can’t beat that!) to $150 (some people love stemware).

      Ooh and notice I didn’t put the wide glasses on this list as well because I FEEL YA on the loss of bubbly. Worst glasses ever, even though they make me feel like I’m in Mad Men when I use ’em.

      • Correct me if I’m wrong, but it actually looks like the price range goes up to $230…

          • I only had to comment because, of course, those were the first ones I clicked on and the only ones that jumped out and said “BUY US!” Damn.

  3. We skipped the flutes altogether and our marriage license is still 100% valid. Cheapest solution of all! We didn’t even miss them.

  4. We’re using the double-walled flutes, we got them for about $20. We had to have them because they look like SCIENCE!

  5. My awesome sister/Maid of Honor just sent us those blue cherry blossom flutes. They are beautiful.

  6. The last pair freak me out. They look like a little man and a little woman – and you drink out of their heads.

    Actually, no, that’s kind of cool.

  7. very cool – love LOVE the nambe flutes!
    I have to agree about the coupe glasses – I’ve read that Marie Antoinette had them made in the shape of her breast – fine for her but : ( for me (and bad for the bubbly too).
    – also for the creative and/or budget conscious – craft stores now carry paint that is permanent on glass and does not require kiln drying, so you can paint any or all of your glass and personalize to your heart’s content! also, you can glue on bits and pretties with E6000 glue and it’s pretty much permanent, even with glass.
    we used silver plated goblets bought at TJ Maxx – such a buy and perfect for passing on to our children.
    cheers! (now if I only had champagne here at work…)

  8. I’ve seen several posts on OBB about champagne flutes that have been gorgeous, but where can I find some fun/fancy- or at least cool looking- beer tankards?

    My fiance and I enjoy beer, we want to have drink ware that reflects us. We aren’t terribly fancy, but we don’t want something that would make us look too much like fraternity bros. either. Any ideas?

      • Yes please! I’d love to see some kick-butt tankards on OBB. lol.

        Thank you so much for that beautiful suggestion, apt9000! I love the hammered quality of the tankard. 🙂

      • Please! I’ve been looking for nerdtastic tankards and finally settled on a Warhammer Ravenhost tankard for him, but i’m still stuck for me!!
