We’re giving away normal size wine bottles as favors for our guest. Should I put the bottles on the table so people see them at the begining of the party and know to take one? Or should we have a table near the exit for each couple to take one on their way out? My only concern with on the table is that it will block the centerpiece and look too busy.
What do u think? Thanks!

I would do a separate table for them, they would just clutter your guests tables and lord knows there’s enough stuff on tables at weddings as it is.

I’ve arranged a lot of parties and my experience is that you have this BEAUTIFUL table… and then you put out the wine. Not the same.
I would place the favors on a separate table, but have it available all night. If you save it for later you run the risk of people leaving before the favor is announced/forgetting it.
We’ll have icewine as our favor and will have it on a table in the garden during the cocktail hour.

I’d have them in a different table.

Do make sure your venue will allow alcohol to leave the premise. Even if you brought it from outside, their liquor license might not permit this kind of favor!

@July062013: I agree wit the others make a seperate table for it! I think that having those extra bottles on the table would make it look kinda messy
I like the idea of placing it close to the exit to make sure people see it!

I think if you leave it on the table, people will think it’s for drinking at the reception, not to take home. Lushes!

A friend of mine gave some type of local, cutesy bottles of beer as her favors and they had A LOT of problems with the venue allowing it since it was outside alcohol. The venue finally agreed, but my friend had to guarantee that none of the bottles would be opened in the venue whatsoever. It was a big wedding, so imagine making sure that 150+ people don’t open a single bottle of beer.
We’re doing mini bottles of champagne as our favors and we had a similar issue with our venue. Luckily we’re only having around 40 guests so it shouldn’t be too hard to ensure no one opens them.

My bride and groom is also giving bottles of wine as their wedding favors. There will be an announcement during one of the speeches, to be kept at the bar and handed out by the bartender.
Guests may forget to take one if it’s not by the door though, so I don’t know…
