I think I have FINALLY made my decision on my guests favors, and am looking at doing personalized hot sauce bottles (both my fiance and I put it on everything, and think it will go perfect with our cottage theme, and BBQ dinner!)
Has anyone done this, and if so, who did you use? I live in Toronto, so was hoping to find a good spot in Canada to avoid all the shipping costs!

I’ve NEVER seen it done and I LOVE the idea! Very unique! I picture those lil tabsco sauce bottles you get on an airplane with a cute thak you tag with yur date, maybe you could use lables to DIY and personalize it?

I’m not sure where you could have them done, but if you could find mini-bottles you could print and glue on the labels yourself (remove the original labels first of course). There’s a hot sauce store in Port Credit that I’ve been in once and the owner is REALLY REALLY REALLY nice (like you can sample anything in the store and stay and hang out as long as you want as I discovered, LOL!), maybe give them a call and see if they have any suggestions? They carry a lot of brands, so maybe they have a contact that would be willing to customize something for you.

I would LOSE MY SH*T if I went to a wedding and got that! SO adorable!
I haven’t done it but off the top of my head I’m thinking you could probably get small bottles at a discount store (Honest Ed’s, anyone?), and maybe print labels off vistaprint? How many are you doing? Costco maybe?

THANKS LADIES! I am quite excited to get them done. I have found a few places online that will do them for $2-$2.50 a bottle, however they are located in the states so shipping is over $100! May just suck it up and do it 🙂
for any other brides that are interested, here are a few sites I have come across:

@CrystalBee: Oh oh!!! If you can get them to ship to Buffalo for cheaper, check out CBI USA. I use them all the time. They’ll hold packages for as long as you need them to. $5 for regular size, $10 for oversize. You don’t need an account or anything, just let them know the day or two before you’re coming down so they can pull it for you. Plus you can go to Target and Joann Fabrics while you’re down there and make the trip worthwhile 😉

@bakerella: THANKS! I actually have a girlfriend down there also (outside buffalo), so may ship to her, however the few prices I have been getting are only $30-40 difference…. (which I would spend in gas. lol, plus shopping fee’s haha)

@CrystalBee: I am from Louisiana and the BEST hot sauce is Tabasco! I live right down from where it is bottled and shipped worldwide! You may check pricing with them! I know they also do little small sample size bottles too!

I actually just finished ordering my hotsauce wedding favors, and i LOVE them !! I went with “From Mild to Wild” houtsauce, they are out of New Brunswick, and only 1 of maybe 2 or 3 companies that sell wholesale hotsauce out of canada, that do custom labels etc.. I worked with the owner Brian Jourdrey on a label design for our labels, and he was awesome..he went with my ideas, and emailed me different designs until i was happy…he said it will take a few days to get the label together and i should have them in 2 weeks tops… but you can pretty much put whatever you want on the label..we even made up our own name for the hotsauce ! Hope this helps !!

@Walford: THANKS SOOOOO MUCH 🙂 Do you happen to have his contact information? And if you don’t mind me asking- how much are you paying per bottle?
