Is it tacky to give shot glasses as favors when we are having a wine/beer only reception? My MOH suggested we do wine glasses instead (a great idea, especially since the wedding is at a vineyard), but I am kind of set on the idea of having a single flower in a short shot glass at each place setting--I think it would look so cute!
Re: shot glass favors for wine/beer only reception?
You could compromise and give each guest a champagne flute, which would be a tall & thinner version of the shot glass and still hold the flower at the place setting.
In short, the shot glasses are a good idea, there are not trashy and they do not suggest that you and your guests are drinkers. It's just a keepsake!

also, i'm not sure i would do any kind of personalized glassware. maybe get you and your FI personalized shot glasses or wine glasses, but i would rather not have glasses with someone elses name and wedding date on it. i would never use that.
since you're getting married at a vineyard, i tihnk a wine glass would be a cute favor. you could buy the stemless glasses if you want them to be more shot glass like. you could get ones that aren't plain (etched glass or something). i just wouldn't pay the money to have them personalized with your wedding date or name, because thats really only cute/reuseable for you and your FI.
Since your wedding is at a vineyard, why not do something wine related. How about mini bottles of wine from that vineyard?
Although the idea of a flower in the shot glass sounds cute, I have visions of it being a pita. Since in actuality the glasses aren't that big, they would have to filled almost to the top with water. As soon as a guest moved one, you've got a mess on the table.
Whatever you do, don't do anything "personalized" like one poster suggested. No one wants a shot glass, beer mug, or wine glass with your names or the date you got married. They'll either be left behind or guests will take them to not appear rude and then toss them as soon as they get home.
I would go with a wine glass or personalized stoppers

[QUOTE]I would suggest doing a personalized 3 oz shot glass/ votive holder instead of a traditional 1.5oz shot glass. We are looking at these and are planning on filling them with candy. I know people say they are tacky but I really think it depends on your group of friends and family. Most favors go to waste in my opinion. For the people who want to keep them they are a cute and can be used in a practical way. Many people have shot glasses that are mementos from trips and special occasions. Adding one more to their collection is fine. I don't think it matters what the favor is wine stopper, wine glass, trinket box, shot glass, etc., it is more clutter around the house that someone who was invited is not going to want. I guess I rather have a shot glass that is practical around the house than a lot of the other stuff you get for favors. It's all how you look at it. I say do what you want but remember, no matter what you do someone will say it is a great idea and someone else will say it is a bad idea.

I totally agee with this. And my suggestion to you is to use a 4 inch tequila shot glass if you'd like to put a flower in it.
