Wine is common in parties. For you to serve it you need wine glasses. If you are throwing a large party it can be expensive to buy many wine glasses. This is why it’s recommended that you contact a glassware rental company and rent the glasses. In addition to saving you a lot of money, wine glass rental saves you the agony of cleaning the glasses.

How to rent wine glasses

For you to have a great experience when you rent wine glasses you need to put a number of factors into consideration. These factors include:

Type of glass: there are many types of wine glasses that you can go for. These glasses include:

  • Red: they are designed for different types of red wines. They have wider bowls to allow the wine to breathe. Red wine glasses are classified into Bordeaux and Burgundy styles.
  • White: white wine glasses are smaller with tulip-shaped sides and come with a narrower bowl and opening. Since just a smaller surface of the wine is exposed to air, the white wine stays cold for a long time.
  • Champagne flutes: they are characterized by long stems and tall narrow bowls that are designed to take the carbonated bubbles when you drink your wine. The tall stem aids in keeping the chilled wine from the heat in your hands.
  • Sherry: they are used at serving various alcoholic beverages such as liqueurs, sherry and port. They have a narrow, tapered bowl.

Insurance: glassware is brittle; therefore, chances are that there are some glasses that will break during the party. To protect yourself, you should go with an insured glassware rental company. Working with an insured company means that the insurance company is the one that will take care of the breakages—not you.

Cleaning: who will clean the glasses once the party is over? While many glass and stemware rentals don’t require you to clean the glasses once you are done, there are some that need the glasses cleaned. To avoid confusion always agree on it before renting.


For your party to be great you must serve wine. Although, many companies don’t provide someone to serve the wine, you should do your research and find out if there is a party rental company in your area offering the service. Although, you will pay a little bit more, you will save money in the long run.
