I love it!

My first response was – why didnt I think if that!

If I went to a wedding that had this I would be a HAPPY girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

And it would really set the tone for the party – great idea!

I think that’s awesome!  We are having beer, wine and a signature drink, but this would be one way to work in some other stuff!

Not so much.

If I had to do this I would play it up. Make a rustic holder for the bottle-something like this:

or hide it in a paper bag like in prohibition times:(or use a burlap bag)

I think its pretty but I’d maybe add a few votive candles as well. I just think candle light really adds to any room and will probably play off of the mirror and glassware as well ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re going to be doing an alochol-centered centerpiece! The FH makes homemade mead, and we’re going to have personalized bottles on each table, along with a few details that tie into our engagement, and a few flowers to add that touch of feminine ๐Ÿ™‚

Love this idea…I just came from the store stocked with stuff to make trial runs on centerpieces. This decision is harder than I thought. LOL

How about you make your own label for the bottle…a play on words. You could even name your tables after the brand/name of liquor. I’d really play up the idea. The shot glasses are a fun favor idea too.

I think I would like the look a lot more if the alcohol was in decanters instead of the original bottles.

I love it too! Will the guests be encouraged to crack open the bottles? If I were a guest, I would be like, “wait, what if it’s for a toast or something? let’s wait….” and then I’m afraid we’d miss out on some shots if we waited too long, haha.

Maybe consider having your DJ make an announcement at the beginning, encouraging people to drink up, or asking them to hold off until [the toast/etc.].

I think that I would like it better if there was more to the centerpiece than just the bottle and the glasses…. maybe put votive candles or flowers in between the bottle and the glasses, just to make it a little more “wedding” and a little less bar decor?

I second the decanter and candles and/or flowers.  It kind of depends on your decor, but those will give it more of a sophisticated/weddingy feel.

i definitely think more needs to be added to it. Some candles would make a huge difference, but it would be sweet if you could put the liquor into a decanter or some other pretty serving things. it just looks sort of plain and NON wedding ish to me.

Decanter would be tough though, because you’d HAVE to taste it to find out what it is – and guests who don’t know their hard liquor still might now know.

@ddw: The OP could have Jack Daniels typed on a piece of parchment like paper kind of like a place setting in front of the decanter bottle. I think that would look pretty cool
