Here’s a very specific (and unique) idea from bride-to-be, Jessy. She wants to give a rocks glass wedding favor to each guest — but she doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on them. Fair enough! Let’s see what we can find for her!
“Hi Emmaline! My fiance and I are planning a 1920’s themed wedding and we’d love to give rocks glasses to our guests as wedding favors. But the prices I’ve seen so far are crazy! Do you have any tips on where to buy rocks glass favors in bulk or for a good price? Thanks in advance!”
Rocks Glass Wedding Favors
Great question, and thanks for writing, Jessy! Sure thing! We jumped on this immediately and here’s what we found to save the day — okay, I’ll dial back the drama — save your budget. ;) We’re good at what we do and finding exactly what you need for your wedding is pretty much our jam. Let’s get started!
We searched far and wide to find you personalized rocks glass favors, particularly glasses that were:
• made of real glass
• designed for weddings
• fast + easy shipping
We found them at Beau-coup! And they are so amazing, I really wish I found these rocks glass wedding favor suggestions for my wedding!
What is a Rocks Glass?
It is another name for an old-fashioned glass or “on the rocks” glass for cocktails. Although you can use it for any beverage. It has a distinct style which is rounded on the top and wide, with a thick bottom.
Do people give these glasses as favors?
Yup! We’re seeing glassware as increasingly popular for wedding favors. Guests love something useful, rather than a gift they can’t or won’t use. We’re noticing these glasses, along with shot glasses and these wine glasses are all wildly popular. But most couples, as you mentioned, don’t know where to buy them at a good price, so they assume it is too expensive. We’re happy to tell you we found rocks glasses that are affordable, coming in between $3.38 – $5.25 each, depending on your quantity, from BeauCoup.
This particular store we found has a minimum order of 36 rocks favor glasses, but that’s pretty standard IMO. They also have a $35 design fee; this is also common, as designs are completely custom (but I’m mentioning it here just so you’re aware).
Can’t you just buy rocks glasses in bulk without personalization?
Sure, of course! This crossed my mind. You can buy a nice set of glassware in a set of 12 for only $27.41 (at time of publication) with free and fast shipping (with Prime — if you don’t have it, get a FREE 30-day trial here).
But here’s the kicker: they are not individually packaged for guests to take home. This means you’ll also need to add glassware boxes like these for guests to transport so they don’t break. Luckily, these boxes are easily available and will work for this project, if you decide to give these glasses without personalization.
You can add a touch of personalization with a tag and ribbon, tied around the box. Easy-peasy! These thank you favor tags are by Glow Wedding Printable.
Can you buy personalized rocks glass favors in bulk?
Yes! If you want to buy rocks glass favors in bulk, you can score a price of $3.38 each for orders of 120+. They offer huge quantities (as well as lower quantity sizes beginning at 36 and up).
A rocks glass makes a great favor for guests to take home because it’s extremely functional, even if he or she doesn’t drink whiskey or drinks on the rocks. It will be just as nice for a glass of ice water, iced tea, or soda. With it being personalized, they’ll think of you whenever they reach for them; and honestly, the quality of these rocks glasses seems so nice! It’s rare to find party favors with such usability that are also well-made and priced right.
And last but not least, these might be perfect for your wedding theme: rocks glass favors with an Art Deco design!
If you like these designs, this is just a snippet of the many they offer on their site. You can start designing here and completely customize the glassware for your event.
