I’m going to buy my ribbon online and they have a few different sizes. What size works best and ties the best bows? They have 3/8" and 5/8" sizes.
I’m doing favors with shot glasses, a small Jack Daniel bottle, jordan almonds and personalized chocolate poker chips. I’m getting married in Las Vegas so my favors are inline with my wedding destination. I haven’t bought the alcohol yet, I’ve had mixed opinions on that so far. The groom and I are choosing Jack Daniels for our own reasons and memories we had with it together…hehe from before we were 21…lol but we will not put that in the favors for the children obviously they will get the pokerchips and jordan almonds.

It’s a cute idea, but do most of your guests drink Jack? It doesn’t matter of course, but if you’re getting mixed opinions I’d guess that you will have a lot left over (which may not be a bad thing! :)). I collect shot glasses (but I don’t drink) so I am always PRO-shot glass. 🙂

I like the idea! I would suggest the 3/8" ribbon.

though i would appreciate the jack – just make sure none of your guests are recovering alcoholics…seriously, that would be seen as insensitive.

And DEFINITELY make sure no UNDERAGE guest gets ahold of this favor..you could be held liable legally for that.

We planned on mexican hand blown shot glasses because we collect them but I can’t imagine grandma throwing back shots at or after the wedding. Ballenga makes a great point about underage guests. I gave up on the shot glasses for a favor everyone can enjoy…chocolate truffles!

Also, you may want to double check with your venue that you can bring in bottles of alcohol (even though they’re small). As mentioned, because of the liability some places do not allow alcoholic favors at all because of the possibility of underage drinking.

I’d be nervous about offering alcoholic favors to a wedding that wasn’t an adult-only affair. We’re having children at our wedding as well, and while there’s a bar for getting drinks, the bartender will be carding people. Small bottles of alcohol sitting out for someone to grab… And, it wouldn’t bother me because I played with gambling chips as a child thanks to grandma’s bingo obsession, but some parents might be a little sensitive to the idea that their child is getting gambling chips. I know in my crowd most of the parents wouldn’t like that idea, but if your crowd has parents that are a little more relaxed, it shouldn’t be an issue.
