My hubby and I have our wedding goblets. Each has our wedding date and name embossed on them. Some people I know have silver ware. How often do you polish it? I only get to the goblets 2 or 3 times a year.

The best way to keep silver clean is to use it. If you use it every day then just by washing and drying it it keeps it shiny. I love silver because it is hard to break. We had loads for our wedding and it was packed by professionals to go to Africa. When we unpacked we found one case a disaster. The idiot 'professionals' had packed a heavy cast iron cooking dish with the silver, china and crystal!! The dish had happily smashed it's way through the lot and the only goods salvageable was the silver ware. Although it was dented and twisted, the local siversmith was able to repair it all and we still use it to this day. Alas, the china and crystal was all lost. So give me silver any day.

Thanks for the 'best response'. I think you should get into the habit of using your lovely goblets every day. Even if you just put water in them! haha

I have only a little silver in the house and it doesn't get polished very often. I like the silver, though, and I should spend time on it. Maybe I'll get it down when I get home today and buff up the surface a bit. We have this tube of mystery stuff that shines the silver back up. I wonder where I put that last?

Nope, We have no silver in our house that is real anyhow. we have nothing to remember our wedding by. Not even pictures. only the marriage license. Sad but true. I am thinking maybe on our 20th wedding anniversary to renew our vows and have something engraved with both dates on it. But that is a few years ahead right now. It would be nice ot have somehting to remember my so called "special" day even if I got married in a Justice of Peace office.
