Goblets and cups have traditionally been used as important decorative items. The cups are often made of silver, pewter or silver-plated bronze, and are often engraved. Goblets and cups are used to commemorate all sorts of important events, from college or high school graduations, to the birth of a child.

Wedding Goblets

Among the most popular occasions for engraving commemorative goblets or cups are weddings. The wedding cup reached a peak of popularity in the early 1800s. During this time, the woman was given a silver cup which she and her groom would sip from during the actual wedding ceremony. The cup was then put on display in their home.

Each year, on their anniversary, the husband and wife would drink from the cup again. Although wedding goblets are no longer an integral part of today's marriage ceremonies, cups are still often given as gifts to couples for their wedding. These cups look sensational displayed in the dining room, or even in a living room.

Engraved items are fitting, elegant gifts for weddings. A wedding is bound to be one of the most important moments in a couple's life together, along with the birth of their children. Engraving silver items with the couple's names and the date of their wedding day is a lovely way to pay homage to this event.
