Survey: Glass-Breaking Etiquette?

Survey: Glass-Breaking Etiquette?

Lindsey Roberts
Jul 21, 2009

We've all been there: you're visiting a friend's home, having a glass of wine, and then it happens — you break the glass. The question is, do you replace or do you not replace? Especially if it's an expensive Riedel or a fancy crystal one? As a hostess, I think the proper etiquette is to say no when your guest asks if he or she can replace the wine glass. But what if you are the guest?

If you said yes, can you explain how you would go about replacing it? Would you check the bottom of the glass to find out what type it was, or would you just leave money in an envelope before you left?
