In general, planning a wedding involves a lot of decisions about just about everything under the sun. Wedding glassware is one example of this and it can be a particularly important area. Of course, you could just go with traditional glasses, as many people, but there is a huge range of alternative options out there.
This includes glassware for the wedding party or for the bride and the groom, as well a different options depending on the type of drinks you plan to serve. Personally, I love the personalized options for glassware as well as the choices that are a bit unique. Making that kind of choice for a wedding can help make the day that much more special, plus, it's a bit of fun to look back on (especially if you manage to keep the glasses after the fact).
The wedding industry is huge, so the sheer amount of options for wedding glassware shouldn't come as any major surprise. However, I still recommend checking out what Etsy creators have to offer, particularly the examples on this list. After all, the store owners who sell on Etsy do have a habit of making things that you just can't find anywhere else.
Nautical Toasting Glasses
These glasses would be perfect if your wedding was nautical themed or if the bride or group had a connection to the sea.
Bride and Groom Champagne Glasses
These glasses combine two common patterns, the use of bride and groom outfits along with a customized name and date.
Rustic Chic Wedding Glasses
This set of glasses is a little bit different but I can't help thinking that they would be perfect for a wedding on the beach.
Bridesmaid Wedding Gifts
Glassware doesn't have to be just for the couple and the idea of customized glassware as a wedding gift does sound pretty fun.
Pretty in Blue Wedding Glassware
I really love the patterns on these glasses and the style means that they aren't restricted to weddings at all. Instead, these are simply elegant glasses that could be used for pretty much any occasion.
Beaded Champagne Flutes
I've never actually seen beads used on glasses before but, in this case, the combination of beads and flowers seem perfect. It's especially cool how the colors from the beads match the flowers.
Dress and Suit Glasses
These glasses are another set for the bride and groom, and they are quite elegant and distinct. The same creator actually has a range of different variations on the same style as well.
Monogrammed Wedding Glasses
Starfish Rope Weeding Glasses
This set is another example of glassware that would be perfect for a beach wedding, especially if you were using rope as part of your theme.
Personalized Funny Wedding Glasses
Most wedding glassware tends to take a serious approach, but there is no reason why this should always be the case. Personally, I think the sentiment on this glassware is perfect for a couple that likes to have fun.
Peacock Wedding Glasses
These glasses use peacock feathers as a theme for the design, which means that you end up with something that is quite unusual. The creator also notes that you can discuss the use of different colors, which would work well if you were trying to coordinate colors.
Groomsmen Set of Glasses
Why should bridesmaids have all the fun? These tongue-in-cheek glasses would be a cool choice for groomsmen.
Romantic Detailed Glasses
The detail on these glasses is amazing, making them a great option for glassware that stands out.
Beaded Wine Glasses
This approach to wedding glassware is a bit different. Typically you find the glass is the part decorated, not the base but this approach might actually work better for some wedding themes.
Hand Engraved Disney Glasses
This creator offered a selection of different images for these Disney glasses and they would be an interesting choice for a wedding or an entirely different occasion.
Underwater Themed Wedding Glasses
The design for these glasses is unusual but very cool. You can pick the colors to use, which would make it easier to fit these particular glasses into your overall wedding theme.
White Flower Champagne Glasses
White is probably the most common color that you find in wedding themes, partly because it is so versatile. That means that these glasses would end up tying well into most wedding themes.
Mr. and Mrs. Glasses
Here's another example of styling glasses around the clothes of the bride and the groom. The design is simple, but it seems to work very well.
Elegant Monogrammed Wine Glasses
This one is a bit of a different approach to glassware. The end result is elegant, although it might cause confusion if you have multiple people with the same initials.
Swarovski Crystal Champagne Flutes
I did mention that the theme of bride and groom's clothing is pretty common, didn't I? Regardless, this set of glasses is a bit of a different approach to that theme, so I had to include them.
Beauty and the Beard
This play on Beauty and the Beast is clever and it's another good one for a couple with a sense of humor.
Violet Rustic Glasses
I feel like this set of glasses is a throwback to a more elegant time and the end product does stand out.
Groomsmen Shot Glasses
Of course, wedding glassware doesn't have to be all champagne glasses, why not throw a few shot glasses in the mix as well? In fairness though, I think these would probably work better for a bachelor's party than for the wedding itself.
Beautiful Hand Painted Glasses
There isn't much about these glasses that screams wedding, but the elegant brushwork makes them quite appealing. Plus, this is another option that would work well for a range of occasions.
Bride and Groom Wedding Glasses
This entry to the list might be a simple one, but sometimes simple is what you are looking for.
Pretty in Pink
These glasses use flowers made from floral clay and that approach makes the flowers look amazing. Personally, I think they suit a wedding theme that already made use of similar colors or flowers.
Silver Champagne Wedding Flute
I quite like these glasses because they are very unique but they're also minimalist.
Hand Painted Wedding Glasses
Hand painting always seems to work well on wedding glasses. As the creator notes, the color choice would work in well with a winter wedding.
Etched Wedding Favor Glasses
This entry is different for a couple of reasons. The first is that it is etched, which makes the design much more resilient than most other wedding glasses. The second is that the listing is for a set of 50 such glasses, which would allow you to cater for the wedding party rather than just the bride and groom.
Heart Wedding Glasses
I haven't actually seen wedding glasses like these ones before, even though the choice of a heart as a symbol does seem like exactly what you would want for a wedding.
Hand Painted Pink Flowers
Well… I said pink flowers, but actually the creator lets you choose what color flowers you want. Again, these would work well for weddings or for different occasions.
White Beach-Style Wedding Glasses
The beach theme seems to be a common one, but I like the way these glasses encompass that idea in a more elegant way.
Lace Wedding Butterflies
With wedding glassware, you tend to see the same patterns in design repeated over and over again. I think that's the reason I like these glasses so much because the approach is different than pretty much every other example of wedding glassware out there.
Great Gatsby-Style Glasses
If you're a fan of Great Gatsby (or the Roaring Twenties in general), this glassware may be a good choice for you.
Bride and Groom Wedding Flutes
We're back to the theme of clothing again, but these glasses do use an entirely different style. Personally, I love the version of the female dress on the glass, but I'm not as sold on the groom's glass.
Love and Laughter Shot Glasses
The sentiment on these glasses is fun, even if it is a bit cliche. Still, it would be a good match for a wedding reception.
Autumn Beer Wedding Glasses
If you're having a wedding in fall, including that color in your wedding theme and glassware might be one way to go.
Blue Lace Glasses
The design with these glasses is a little bit unusual and I'm not quite sure what to think of it. Still, the shade of blue used is quite striking and a bit of fun.
Engraved Dancing Wedding Glasses
These particular glasses seem incredibly romantic to me and would be best suited for the bride and the groom. Like many other entries on this list, it is also possible to customize these with the wedding date and the names of the couple.
Sugar Skull Beer Glasses
Believe it or not, these are actually designed as wedding glasses. The style is certainly different but that just makes them even better for people that don't tend to follow tradition.
Autumn Leaves Wedding Glasses
I mentioned fall leaves earlier, but here's a second example. I like the way these leaves are quite fine and it looks like they are painted on the glass.
Glasses for Bridesmaids
Finally, here is one more set of glasses that would work well for bridesmaids. It's also worth noting that you can pick the color and font used as well as the text at the base. So theoretically, you could get a more gender-neutral set of glasses instead if that was what you wanted.
