A Note About Buying Online

When purchasing any kind of liquor on the web, do understand that many states have shipping restrictions. So it’s probably best to check your local stores, too. In this way, if anything should happen you can still opt for a returning and/or exchanging your purchase with the vendor. Purchasing in bulk also complicates the matter, which is why it may be best to opt for a local source.

Creating Your Own Liquor Favors

Making liquor bottle favors on your own is also another practical option. In this way, you can personalize them accordingly. To do this, you’d need to buy small empty bottles*, a funnel for pouring the desired drink, and then affix your own labels*. It may be a bit messy so you will need help from at least 2 people especially if you are making bottles for 50+ guests. But if this is too cumbersome for you, you may want to consider a non-alcoholic option such as ready to give Martinelli’s sparkling apple cider (8.4 fl. oz). *Amazon affiliate links.

  1. Markers Mark is a Bourbon Whiskey NOT a rum.

  2. Thanks for pointing out this correction, Paige! We’ll make the needed edit asap.

    Cheers!

  3. I would like to know where I can inquire about prices on the mini tequila patron wedding favors it gives sites but I can’t get to prices and where to order, thank you
    The party soure
    Mel & rose
    I’m assuming those are sites but don’t have an order button or prices

  4. Hi Marcela — We re-visited the link we gave for Mel & Rose. And it looks like they have the Patron mini tequila bottles in stock, at $39.99 for a pack of six 50-ml. bottles. They also have an “Add to cart” button.

    Here’s the link:

    Happy shopping!

  5. Hi there. Any recommendation on what kind of tequila brands? I am a newbie at this. My fiance wants to give them out as favors. Thank you.

  6. Jose Cuervo, Don Julio, and Partida Tequila would be some suggestions. You may want to visit stores like Bevmo that can probably offer you more ideas! Good luck and congrats!

  7. In my opinion, I think giving alcohol wedding favors is one of the worst ideas for favors. My sister decided on her wedding to give these mini tequila bottles to thank guests but there were some guests who either didn’t drink alcohol or preferred something else like chocolates. After she spent more than $5 on 100 bottles of mini tequilas, only 50% were taken home. She had to put them on Craigslist in order to get rid of them. Now I know that some brides like the idea of giving them as favors, but I’m just sharing my story because I’m now planning my own wedding and I don’t know what to choose as favors. Do you have any alternatives to this? I still want to give something drinkable, but just not one that has alcohol. Thanks!

    • Thanks, Adora. We understand that giving alcohol favors may not be for everyone especially if you have lots of guests with kids. If you prefer non-alcohol ideas, you can try mini soda bottles, sparkling cider, and coffee.
