I didn't bring flutes or cake cutters to my destination for the same reason. As it was we filled 1 1/2 suitcases with wedding supplies, and I tried very hard to bring as little as possible.
However I have read posts from lots of brides who did bring their own. I guess it depends on who offers their suitcase space, shipping costs to your destination, number of guests, personal preference, etc. I flew down 2 ring bearer pillows with shells on them. Because of the shells, they had to be padded, which took up even more room than just the pillows themselves. They took up a lot of space and weren't an absolute necessity, but I wanted them!
