Ruby Crystal German Bridal Cup

$269.95 $249.95


Traditionally used in Germany to celebrate weddings, the German bridal cup represents the union between the couple as they start off their life together.  The swiveling cup and hollow dress are designed to allow both bride and groom to drink simultaneously and toast their wedding.

It is said that drinking from the bridal cup brings love, faithfulness and good luck to the wedding couple.  The legend of the bridal cup stems from centuries ago in old Nuernberg, Germany and is a story about how a powerful nobleman tried to prevent the marriage of his daughter to a goldsmith unless one condition could be met.

The Ruby crystal bridal cup features an etched and carved out design on the skirt area which frames the bride and groom’s names and wedding date.  The top cup is also made of crystal and has two doves carrying a ring between them etched onto the surface.  The maiden’s body is made from highly polished pewter.  Together, the color combination of the ruby red crystal and polished pewter make this an attractive and unique bridal cup.

This bridal cup comes safely packed in a sturdy gift box suitable for storage. Includes a legendary brochure written in an Old English font explaining the story behind the tradition.

Engraving Information

Free Engraving:
Free engraving on this bridal cup includes two lines of text of up to 22 characters per line which is engraved on the skirt area.  (If you prefer the layout the same as in the image, just let us know.  No extra charges will apply as long as you stay within the character limitations).  An extra line may also be engraved on the skirt area of up to 22 characters.

Engraving Format:
All engraving lines are centered unless otherwise specified.  There are times we will use our own judgement and make changes to the engraving.  As an example, you may request all capital letters, but the font you chose would not look well in all caps.  We will never change your verbiage or font choice without contacting you first, however, we will correct punctuation and make adjustments to the layout if necessary.

Engraving Time:
The time it takes to engrave and ship your order is two weeks.  This can sometimes be shorter or longer depending on the time of the season.  A tracking number will be sent on the day your order ships.

Need By Date:
We ask for this so that we can be sure that we do not miss an important date or event.  We review your need by date and the shipping method you choose.  In some instances, we may need to contact you and upgrade your shipping method or process on a rush basis so that you receive your item in time.

Rush Orders:
If you need your order sooner than two weeks, you can choose the option to rush your order.  We also ask for the date you need your order by and we take that into account when you choose to rush your order.  We will contact you if necessary.

How to Provide Us with Additional Engraving Instructions:
You are able to provide additional information and engraving instructions when you go through the check-out process.  Please enter any information pertaining to your engraving in the “order notes” field which is found on the same page where you enter in your billing and shipping details.

Color Fill:
Color fill is a process in which we fill in the engraved lettering with a permanent silver or gold paint to enhance the appearance.  It is available on glass and ceramic surfaces only.

For example, if you are purchasing an item for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, you may choose to have gold color fill. Or if you are purchasing an item with a metal base and glass flute, you may choose to color fill the letters to match the color of the metal.  Overall, it will enhance the appearance of your item, making the text more visible and easier to read.  The below examples are from left to right: gold fill and silver fill.
