    How early is too early to start getting the small bits and pieces.

    I have just seen this and love them! I love the idea of being able to keep the glasses we have our first drink in as husband and wife.

    Is it too early to get bits and pieces like these?

    Not asked OH if he likes them yet so might be a no anyway.

    It's never too early! We started to buy and book things when we booked our venue back in November which was 18 months before the wedding and I'm so glad we did, it has taken so much pressure off and it's lovely knowing we have a lot of bits and pieces already and it spreads the cost x

    They are a bargain too... ooooo so tempted. OH has replied to my email saying he likes them.

    Turning into a spoilt girl.. want want want hahaha. I haven't seen anything like his for the wedding and fell in love with it so much that I want it there and then.
    There's a lovely plaque I've got that says Eat, Drink and be Married. I was pestering OH about it so when the shop was shutting down he bought it for us :)

    I might wait until at least Thursday when we have booked the reception venue.

    Like Sarah said if you are sure you won't change your mind and your OH likes them then go for it! Yeah I would wait just in case something changes with the date as you need to put it on the glasses! x

    Never too early but don't jump into decisions always go for things your certain of as I've jumped into a few buys and regretted after but at same time got others things for bargain prices and don't regret them! These are lovely btw could be cheeky and ask u to post link on my wall if you don't mind. I think as long as u keep list of what I have then start as early as u can :) x

    We also booked things in advance and ours was also over 2 years away lol! In regards to glasses I know my Bridesmaid wants to buy things like this for the wedding so I wont be buying anything like that otherwise we'll have hundreds of them lol! I've been buying 'best man' and 'father of the bride' gifts etc since we got engaged lol!! xx

    spoke to OH and he really likes them.

    I will wait to see what the seller says about shipping to the UK. If not we will try to find something similar which does ship to the UK. If not might be really cheeky and ask if they can be shipped to my American Aunts.. she's coming to the UK in Sept :)

    They're lovely Emily.

    I've just stalked your wall to find the contact - I'm looking for personalised champagne flutes for my bridesmaids so have sent her a message to see what she can do!
