How about keeping your wedding spirit alive in the wedding favors that you send home with your guests? If you've had a cocktail wedding reception, then even better! What you can do is have a specially prepared cocktail as a star attraction at the bar. Keep its ingredients a mystery and make sure everyone enjoys it. Now, as a wedding favor, you can pleasantly surprise your guests by giving them the mix of the mystery cocktail along with instructions about how to make it.
One of the most popular cocktail wedding favors is coasters. You can get great offers on different types of wedding favor coasters, by browsing through some sites online. You can have them personalized with your initials, or even the date of your wedding. Glass coasters are a good option as wedding favors, because plastic ones may look too crude and crass. Go in for translucent, rather than opaque glass, in colors that co-ordinate with your wedding colors to give them an elegant appearance. You can keep them simple or have ornate designs embossed onto them.
Shot or Wine Glasses
If there's one thing any fan of alcohol appreciates, it is different types of alcohol glasses. So, as a return gift to your guests, you can arrange an assortment of shot and wine glasses on the wedding favor table. Now, it's up to you to decide if you want them to choose for themselves which glasses they want, or you can decide and mark their names beforehand. Just remember to keep the design simple, so that no one feels that you were 'favor'ing someone over them.
Another must-have in any wine cellar or mini bar is a good bottle opener. It's useful and, fortunately for you, there is an array of fancy designs that you can choose from to make really personal bottle openers, especially for your wedding. You can experiment with the shapes, sizes, colors, etc. Just browse online and you'll get some great deals on bulk orders, for sure. Hearts, bride and groom, names, monuments, faces, etc. are some ideas that you can use for the bottle openers.
If you're willing to go overboard on everything at your wedding, then arranging for something truly exquisite shouldn't be a problem. So get ready for some real spending. Get each of your guests a miniature alcohol bottle. If you can, find out what their favorite drink is, and get a miniature of that particular drink and place the person's name tag on it. You can also make the labels of the bottle a little unique by having your names on it along with a message thanking the guest and mentioning that it is his favorite drink. This one will be cherished for years to come!
