There’s no need for the party to end once your wedding wraps. Give your guests some boozy wedding favours so that they can keep the celebration going once they leave your reception (or save it for a rainy day). From actual alcohol to themed utensils, there are a few ways you can incorporate your love of cocktails into your guests’ gifts. Pro tip: if you’re hosting anyone under the legal drinking age you probably want to order a few different types of favours, too.
Here's a few boozy wedding favours your guests will love.
Alcohol wedding favours
Treat your guests to some post-party booze by gifting them a mini bottle of your favourite alcohol. Jack Daniel’s, Limoncello and Jagermeister wedding favours are all fan favourites. This is also a great way to introduce your pals to local distilleries and breweries, so think about trying something crafted in or around your neighbourhood.
Cocktail infusion jars
Here's an innovative gift idea that has been handcrafted by Maiden Voyage, a team of mixologists in Eastern Ontario. They have assembled a collection of Instagram-worthy mason jars containing custom blends of dehydrated fruit, citrus, herbs, spices and sugar. Your guests can simply add their choice of spirit to the jar and let it steep for a few days to infuse it with complex flavours. The result is tasty alcohol to sip or craft cocktails with. They are available to buy at their online shop.
Bottles of bitters
Help your guests up their beverage game by giving them a bottle of Kinsip bitters as wedding favours. Their collection of handcrafted bitters includes exotic flavours like Chilli Espresso and Maple Walnut. If some of your guests stick strictly to vodka sodas and rye and gingers, these might encourage them to start thinking outside the box. Want to go the extra mile? Consider tacking on a drink recipe for a little bit of inspo.
Mini champagne bottles
Allow your friends and family to keep the party going by giving them their own personal bottle of champagne to pop. No, it doesn’t have to be the real deal, itty bitty bottles of prosecco will do just fine (no need to break the bank!). Tie a bow and straw around the neck of each bottle and, voila! You’ve got some adorable little favours on your hands.
Wine wedding favours
Order cases of your favourite wine and gift a bottle to your guests – this is ideal for a winery wedding, obvi. If you’re feeling crafty you can DIY your own bottles of wine with customized labels like these ones from Wine Kitz.
Embrace your love for cocktails and sweets with wedding favours that combine both. Squish Candies offers yummy gummies in all kinds of boozy flavours including Prosecco Bears, Bourbon Cubes, Perfect Day Sangria and Pina Colada. Mimosa macarons, Gin and Tonic cupcakes and mason jar tiramisu are just a few more possibilities - the options are endless.
These make for great favours because you can tailor them to your wedding theme. Hosting a tropical affair? Find some cute pineapple glasses to gift your guests. Maybe you’re doing something on the swankier side? Sleek metallic shots might be just what you need. If you’re going for plain and simple glasses, consider stamping them with your wedding monogram to make them a touch more festive.
Bottle openers come in all shapes and sizes, so get creative. Instead of going for a run-of-the-mill option, hunt for something unique that’ll really impress your guests. Keys, antlers, music notes and just about everything in between can be crafted into beautiful bottle openers. Find one that suits your wedding theme or plays off of your favourite hobbies to infuse the keepsake with more meaning.
No drink is complete without a garnish. Yes, fresh lemon and lime slices are fine for bars, but why not give your guests something a little swankier as favours? Add bottles of artisanal cocktail cherries, preserved orange slices or stuffed olives so that they can take their homemade boozy beverages to the next level.
