Our Favorite Mini Bottles to Include in Your Wedding Welcome Bag
What's more fun than arriving at your hotel room before the wedding and finding a bag of goodies welcoming you to town? Not much, especially when said bag is filled with sips and treats that are special to the couple or their wedding locale. Among our favorite items to include in a wedding welcome bag are mini bottles or single-serve cans of your favorite wine, spirit, or mixed drink.
It's your guests' job to celebrate, and if you want to ensure they get the party started from the moment they arrive, stock their welcome goodies with your favorite alcoholic beverages. While full-sized bottles are certainly welcome, they're not as cost-effective (or adorable) as their smaller counterparts. Instead of splurging on a spendy bottle of wine or booze, package up snacks, candy, and one or two minis in each welcome bag. Whether you choose a split of your favorite bubbly or wine, a single-serve cocktail, or a small bottle of booze made locally, you can't go wrong with miniature sips.
To help you stock your welcome bags with the minis your guests really want, we searched high and low for the bottles that are sure to elicit oohs and ahhs. Great for mixing into an in-room signature drink or to be enjoyed on their own, we chose an array of crowd-pleasing mini bottles that include everything from the classics to the unexpected. Want something custom? We found a distillery in Indiana that will help you create a personalized label for any of their spirits. Want a spirit from the state you grew up in? You'll find some locally-crafted liquors here, too. Crazy about margaritas? Our tequila picks will help your guests make one pre-ceremony.
