Like silver and china, crystal has long been a traditional wedding gift.  Crystal can catch and reflect light, making drinks sparkle as the couple raises a glass to their future together. It's about creating an atmosphere—a sense of occasion that marks the beginning of a new chapter in their lives.

Selecting the right crystal glass depends on the couple's preferred beverage. Champagne flutes are a classic choice for toasting to love and commitment, but elegant wine glasses or sophisticated whiskey tumblers can be perfect, depending on their drink of choice.

Crystal drinkware is not just for the wedding day; it's for a lifetime. With proper care, including gentle hand washing and avoiding extreme temperature changes, crystals can remain dazzling for many anniversaries to come.
