Top 10 Wedding Favors for Beer and Wine Enthusiasts

Ladies, you’ve found the perfect guy. He’s the one who makes you laugh when you feel like punching a wall, the one who eats your newly found Pinterest recipes (and doesn’t say anything about it looking nothing like the picture), or he’s the one who enjoys trying new beers or wines as much as you do. If that’s your guy then hold on tight because he sounds like a keeper!

While you’re busy finding the perfect dress for you, picking out flowers for his boutonniere, and dealing with your mother’s “wonderful” suggestions about colors, don’t forget about finding unique wedding favors that tie the tastes you and your future husband share.

If finding and trying new beers and wines is your idea of a good time, then Quality Logo Products has a variety of options for you to choose from and customize with your names, event date, or maybe just a simple little message of ‘thanks’ for guests to take home and enjoy. No matter what your budget or guest list size is, we’ve got something unique and perfect, just like the lucky man you’ve found!

Stocking the bar

Having the proper glasses is essential to every properly stocked bar. You wouldn’t serve an Old Fashioned in a martini glass or merlot in a highball glass. For these first few wedding favor ideas, let your guests have their drinks and drink them too!

A fun souvenir your guests will love taking home!

For the beer enthusiasts out there, stock your bar with a variety of beers to please everyone’s tastes- try some local brews in addition to the national brands- and have plenty of these Tall Glasses (16 Oz.) with your event date and names silk screened onto them. When your guests are done trying your favorite brews, they can take the glass home with them and use it in addition to their own barware.

Was going to wine tastings a favorite date you two enjoyed? Bring those special memories to your wedding and let guests enjoy the wine you’ve picked out with these Vina Wine (10.5 Oz.) glasses. While they’re swirling and smelling away, your custom wine glasses will provide them a way to remember your special day months and years from now.

A ‘straight up’ fun wedding favor

If beer and wine make you turn up your nose, and martinis are more your style don’t you fret, we’ve got glasses for those drinks too! A popular trend right now at receptions is creating “custom” drinks that the groom and bride choose. If this sounds daunting, just ask the wedding maven herself, Martha Stewart for her drink suggestions. Serve them in these Martini Glasses (7.25 Oz.) and you’ll truly make your wedding favors unique and distinctive.

Shots of liquor will certainly make for an eventful wedding reception, and if you want a loud and lively one then serving them is one way to achieve it. Don’t just rent boring shot glasses from the reception hall, customize your very own for guests to take home and use again and again. The Clear Glass Shooter (2 Oz.) can have whatever you want silk screened onto them.

They won’t play music, but these flutes will add fun to your reception!

Finally, a champagne toast to wish you luck in your future together is almost as common as serving white cake with buttercream frosting- it is classic and always a crowd pleaser! Whether you’re doing a champagne brunch for your reception or serving champagne along with your dinner, go for customized Flute Glasses (6 Oz.). Not only are these imprinted flute glasses made in the USA but they’re also extremely budget friendly since the order minimum requirement is well under 141 (the average reception size according to the XO Group’s 2010 Real Weddings Study). Your guests can toast your happiness at your reception and then go home and enjoy a bottle of bubbly with their special someone.

Some drinks you have to serve “on the rocks”, but don’t just use plain, old boring ice. Show off your fun side and give guests a taste of what’s to come during the reception by using these Clear Ultra Glow Ice Cubes (Color Changing LED) instead. Worried they’ll die out before the ‘Chicken Dance’? Don’t be. They have a long lasting battery powered LED light inside each cube. You can imprint your names onto these custom ice cubes or just your event date for a simple reminder of your special day.

Show how ‘grape’ you think your guests are

If you and your new fiancé(e) are wine connoisseurs, then let all your guests celebrate your interest in wine on your special day. Enjoying the wine you’ve chosen to serve all begins with opening those bottles and letting that wine breathe. A Waiter’s Knife is an excellent wedding favor since guests can use these custom wine bottle openers months and years following your wedding! They have a bottle opener, corkscrew, and a knife all attached to this MacGyver of wine opening items.

A memorable favor that your guests will ‘stop’ and take notice of

Once that bottle of wine is open though, you’ll need to close it back up to enjoy later. That’s where these Wine Stoppers will make a lasting impression on your guests. No one can ever have enough wine stoppers, so it’s a truly functional wedding favor that guests will love receiving and using again and again!

Beer makes for a ‘hoppy’ future together

Want to save some money at your reception? Buy your own canned beer at your local discount membership wholesale store (i.e. Sam’s Club or Costco). You won’t have to go through a middle man and pay additional money- always a welcome thought towards the end of planning your wedding. If you’re worried about looking cheap in front of your guests (first of all, why’d you invite them in the first place), but secondly, put that extra money you saved towards your wedding favor. A Kolder Holder Neoprene (Full Color) can holder will keep their beer cold yet keep their hand from freezing off! These custom can holders can be a representation of your future together, a perfect fit.

‘Unbottle’ the good times at your reception with these Deluxe Bottle Openers!

Bottled beer more your style? No worries! Put one of these Deluxe Bottle Openers at your 21 and older guests’ seats and they’ll have a functional keepsake from your wedding that they can actual use again, no offense to those delicious candy covered almonds. Your message is laser engraved for a truly customized look and feel that will have your guests thinking you spent $26,984 on the favors alone (that’s the average cost of a wedding, excluding the honeymoon in 2010).

Your wedding day is the day to celebrate you and your fiancé finding each other and making the commitment to be a part of each other’s lives forever. Invite your family and friends to celebrate with you and bring in some of your interests into the wedding favors for a truly memorable event they won’t forget! As long as you’re both happy with what you decide on, that’s all that matters in the end.

    Great suggestions, Amy! I have yet to attend a wedding where they pass out imprinted drinkware, but that’s definitely a great gift. Whether you use it often or just put it on display, it will look great!

      My mom does catering for weddings and she’s amazed at the number of clients who have asked her for recommendations for companies that do imprinted glassware. I guess renting glasses can be extremely costly and if you can combine that cost and your wedding favors into one easy item, why not?

      I have yet to attend a wedding where I walk away with a custom martini glass, but it seems like this is a trend that’s soon to become popular.

      Thanks so much for reading, Mandy :)

    Hey! “Mad Men” fans? Are you considering a 1950′s/1960′s themed wedding? Have your guest sip old fashioneds, Manhattans, and gimlets from their respective glassware counterparts. If you’re looking as beautiful as Betty, or as dashing as Don, you’re not going to want to see yourselves holding a Bud Light in all the photographs that will be taken. Heck, forget it being a theme reception or not, let’s just approve of these as a way of keeping it classy, folks.

    • Amy Swanson

      I would love to attend a 1950′s/1960′s themed wedding reception, how fun would that be?! Looking at pictures of my grandparent’s receptions they just looked so classy and refined. Now it’s common to see guests show up in jeans. Yet another reason I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong era ;)

      I’m on board with your “Keeping it classy, folks” initiative, Eric. Sign me up!

    I hadn’t really thought of glassware as wedding favors, but it’s a really good idea! I especially like the thought of champagne flutes being imprinted or laser engraved with the bride and groom’s names and the date of the wedding. It’s super appropriate for the reception, and it would make for a great keepsake as well. And glowing ice cubes are always fun, too, especially for less formal celebrations.

    Great suggestions, Amy! :)

    • Amy Swanson

      Those glowing ice cubes were too good not to share in this post. So glad you like them too, Rachel! :)

      • Eric

        Or…

        Glassware WITH glowing ice cubes?!?!?

        BAM.

        Two promo products, one wedding reception.

        We’re multitaskin’, folks.

    I love those martini glasses! Barware is always a good choice for wedding favors because it’s collectible and practical. I have tons of random glasses from weddings I’ve gone to over the years, and it’s awesome.

    This sort of defeats the purpose of your alcohol-centric glassware, but the Soda Can Glass is one of my favorite pieces on our site. Come on, how often do you see a glass shaped like a pop can? Pretty cool.

    Anyway, excellent post, Amy! I’d also like to add that the glassware at my wedding went lightning fast, and guests still ask me if we have any extras to give them. I do not regret my decision. :)

    • Amy Swanson

      Haha, first of all those Soda Can Glasses are so cool looking! I had no idea those were on our site, the things you learn…

      That’s so neat that you had custom glassware at your wedding, it seems to be a growing trend.

      Thanks so much for reading and giving your insight as well, much appreciated :)
