Limoncello Favor Ideas for Weddings

Limoncello favor ideas with packaging tags

1 – Classic glam – We love the graceful look of this limoncello packaging with gold-edged ribbon (image by Liam Boylan) found via Serious Eats. The post is also full of great tips and suggestions for DIY limoncello—and a recipe!

2 – Bottles with cork stoppers – For a pretty packaging effect, cork stoppers add such a quaint touch (best for small bottles, though, that will be consumed soon after opening!). We got the idea from a post on The Vintage Mixer, with another great recipe included.

3 – Violin or guitar-shaped bottles – You could scour the web for suppliers of truly unique containers to suit your theme. We spotted these ones via a real destination wedding in Capri featured on Jet Fete blog. Notice the couple’s names and wedding details painted on, too!

4 – Other interesting shapes – These 3-bulb bottles seen via Yes Bride are an eye-catching option! Pretty enough to stand on their own, you can just add rustic tags with some graceful hand calligraphy as a finishing touch.

5 – Modern and sleek – This is the perfect bottle option for a trendy wedding theme. It could be used as a lovely single-bloom vase by guests afterwards. This example via actually holds Crema di Limoncello—a variation which you may consider, too! Recipes for this and several other lemon-based goodies are provided.

6 – Themed favor tags – Even if only the simplest of bottles are available, no worries! Customizable favor tags like these lemon-shaped ones from Simply Diane Designs on etsy can bring on the charm for you.

7 – Cute mini bottles – Aiming for a casual, friendly vibe? Check out these twine-trimmed bottles featured on Wedding Clan, with equally cool graphic style tags. So appealing!

8 – Flask-type containers – If your wedding theme calls for a homemade look, bottles with that flattened flask shape would be great. Then, like on these examples from Girlichef (limoncello recipe included), you can simply hand write the sticker labels.

From vintage-style to chalkboard labels, add your own special way of personalizing your favors.
