Drunk On Wine Wedding Favors

When you want to celebrate, what is one of the first things you think of having? It is wine, right? Wine has become synonymous to celebrations and festivities that it would be rare to see a wedding that does not serve this kind of beverage. But do you know that now, wine is not only served during the actual event? Nowadays, it has also become a popular option for wedding favors.

Choosing Wine Wedding Favors
Some people may think that wine is an expensive wedding favor. But if you consider the fact that you would be serving wine to accompany the meal, in the end it would be more affordable because the wine can be consumed during the event and then the bottle can be taken home as the souvenir. Another option for you to save money would be to choose wine mini bottles to give away as wedding favors. Guests would certainly adore these cute mini bottles.
When buying wine wedding favors, one of the first things you have to consider is the type of meal you are going to serve during the event. This should complement your choice of wine. White wine go well with fish and light dishes while red wine is perfect for hearty meals and meat-based dishes.
The season should also be taken into account. White wine is ideal for warm seasons while red wine is suitable for cold months. Also, you have to give special consideration to guests attending the wedding. For those who are non-drinkers or for children, give mini bottles of sparkling grape juice or apple cider. You can also give non-alcoholic beverage giveaways for people whose religion or culture opposes alcohol drinking.
Customized Wedding Labels
The nice thing about wine wedding bottles is that you can add some personal touch into it. You can personalize the labels so it would bear the wedding date, the name of the couple, and a personal message. You can even have your photograph imprinted on the label if you want to. To make it more fun, you can add a funny message or quote on the label. Something like, “Love is like a wine, the older it gets, the better it tastes (just don’t forget the cork or it will go stale!)” would surely makes guests laugh.
Wine Accessories
Aside from wine, other wine accessories can also be given as wedding favors such as imprinted wine glasses, champagne flutes, wine charms, and wine stoppers. You can have wine glasses or flutes imprinted with your names and the wedding date. Decorate the wine glass with a ribbon and bow that match the color of your wedding motif.
Wine stoppers have also become very popular these days especially because you can now choose customized designs that can complement the theme of your wedding. For example, for a winter wedding celebration you can opt for a snowflake wine stopper. If you are going to have a beach wedding, a beach ball or seashell wine stopper would be the perfect choice.
Wine charms are also nice to give away because they are beautiful and yet inexpensive. In fact, you can even make your own wine charms using materials like beads, shells, faux gemstones, and many others. You can give a set of wine charms as wedding favors or use these charms decorate the wine bottle or wine glass you intend to give away.
Whether you choose a wine bottle (or a mini version) or a wine accessory, your guests would surely love the feel of festivity and rejoicing that comes with this kind of wedding favor. Make sure you pick the right choices and you add a personal touch to make the favor even more special.
