Are you looking for a wedding favor idea that can suit virtually any theme, plus is handy, pre-packaged (or needs minimal trimmings), and budget-friendly all in one? Well, have we got a suggestion for you: drinkable wedding favors!
Not only are these fun novelty gifts for guests, but you can choose from 3 options. One is to buy ready-made drinks in bottles or cans that you can simply add tags to. Another is to go with homemade beverages you will bottle yourselves and attach personalized labels. And a third is to order proprietary or artisanal drinks from a vendor who can personalize the packaging for you. We’ve explored these 3 options for you with product and packaging picks, so read on!

Option 1: Ready-made Drinks You Can Personalize with Homemade Tags or Labels
This is a great approach for bottled or canned beverages such as soda (look out for retro editions, if that’s your theme), champagne, sparkling rosé wine, or other liquors. The bottles or cans are often designed so stylishly that you only need to add DIY favor tags you’ve printed yourselves.

Option 2: Mix and Bottle Your Own Beverages, then Order Personalized Tags or Labels
If you have the recipe for a special beverage like homemade apple cider, lemonade, limoncello, or Bellini drink, mix up your own drinkable favors. You can buy containers in bulk like mason jars or empty wine bottles. Then, obtain labels or tags from a vendor who can personalize them for you, and package your drinkable favors to match your theme.
These label options would work, too, if you plan to personalize a special vintage wine from a particular year or a craft beer from a local brewery.
