Wedding receptions are a special day when two people celebrate their love with friends and family. As a bride, most of the attention is focused on the dress, the decor, and the food, but it’s easy to overlook an important item - the cups. The last thing any bride wants is for their guests to spill drinks because of a mismatched cup size.
This is where shatterproof frost flex cups come in, they are perfect for weddings because they’re durable, stylish, and can be personalized to match the wedding theme. However, with so many cup sizes to choose from, what size should you pick? In this blog post, we’ll explore what size shatterproof frost flex cups are best for wedding receptions.
When it comes to shatterproof frost flex cups, the size of the cup is regulated by the US Department of Weights and Measures. The cup size indicates the amount of liquid if filled to the brim (not including ice). Stated ounces are intended to show approximate volume and are not an implied guarantee of exact volume. That being said, it’s still important to choose the right size for your event to ensure your guests have a comfortable drinking experience.
Here's a guide to help you choose the ideal size for your wedding reception.
8 oz – This small size is probably not ideal for your wedding reception, although some couples like to use them for very small glasses of wine or use them to serve ice cream or vegetable crudités.
9 oz – If you want to serve wine at your reception, the 9 oz size is the smallest recommended for wine. However, it is worth noting that a standard poured glass of wine is 5-6 oz, so you may run the risk of your guests overpouring or underpouring their wines.
10 oz – The 10 oz cup size is another option for serving wine at your reception. It still may not be the traditional 6 oz pour that most guests are accustomed to, but it is a step up from the 9 oz option.
12 oz –
14 oz – Mixed drinks and signature cocktails are very common at wedding receptions. They’re delicious, refreshing and is the perfect way to get the party started. The 14 oz size is the smallest size we would recommend for mixed or signature drinks, since they can accommodate ice and still give enough space for the drink itself.
16 oz – If you’re a lover of cocktails as much as I am, then the 16 oz shatterproof frost flex cup is perfect for you. With its wider mouth, it can accommodate larger ice cubes, garnishes and straws. My favorite thing about this cup size is that it can take your signature drinks to the next level, making it truly unforgettable. This is our most popular size.
Your wedding reception is a celebration of love, and choosing the perfect shatterproof frost flex cup is just one of the many details that can make it even more memorable. Remember to choose the ideal size based on the type of drink you’re serving, whether it be wine, mixed drinks or beer. Do take note that the ounces indicated on the cups are intended to show approximate volume and are not an implied guarantee of the exact volume. When in doubt, it’s always better to size up. Cheers to a beautiful wedding reception that will be remembered for a lifetime!
