Not to sound like a “negative nancy” but:

1) You MUST find some way to seal them otherwise people won’t be able to drive with them in their car. Even if the cap is screwed on it is still considered an open bottle of alcohol. Maybe a wax seal?

2) I would think it would get very expensive providing alcohol for all the bottles

3) If someone under 21 gets a hold of the bottles and drinks one you are responsible for providing alcohol to a minor.

Just make sure you think about of the factors besides it being cute and “practical”.

Good luck either way.

For sealing the bottles, just use super glue. And maybe instead of leaving them on tables for the guests to find, you can have someone have a list and a basket with the bottles to hand out to the adults only. Maybe put soda or some type of non-alcoholic drinks in the other bottles for the kids.

I love love it!  Are you going to include a tag or sign of any sort so guests know what it is?

I think @FutureMrsMeinhardt: is referring to the illegality of having an opened bottle of alcohol in a car, not to concerns about spillage.

Super cute idea, especially since your Fiance is painting them!

@SoontobeMsL:

Very cute!!! And I love the idea of your Fiance painting it. 🙂

We made homebrew favors and provide a loganberry juice (regional thing) for all the 21 and under. We individually tagged each bottle, doubling as escort cards so there will be no issues of minors getting alcohol.

I would just double check with your venue that they are ok with you bringing in a) your own alcohol and b)homemade alcohol.

With our venue we were not allowed to bring in our own alcohol so we doubled check that they were OK with us doing a homebrew favor. And they were fine as long as they were not to be consumed on site.

@SoontobeMsL:

I was actually curious why you thought people (on here?) would think it’s such a big deal?

I think it’s actually really common. I hear alot about people giving out some form of alcohol as favors. There’s been Bees who made limoncello as favors, couple ladies on here who I know planned on doing a homebrew as well and wine favors being the most common.

It’s not illegal to have open alcohol bottles in a car in most states as long as no one is drinking in the car and the bottle isn’t within reach of the driver.  Your venue will probably be fine with you giving them out as long as they aren’t consumed there, so just give them out at the end of the evening to keep that from happening.  I think it’s a great favor idea since you’re not going to have a lot of young people there.  If you do have any children coming, I would suggest giving them a special favor of their own like candy or a toy.
