2. Fantasy Wedding
This wedding theme can definitely use a lot of magic. Rather than wrapping colourful bath bombs in boxes, why not a mini liquor bottles gift set instead?
The top mini bottles picks are colour-changing spirits, top-billed by vodka, tequila and gin. Start thinking: Mermaid lemonade, purple martini, and blue vodka. You must check out the Mermaid Gin from the Isle of Wight. The bottle comes with an etching pattern that resembles fish scales. Other than the presentation, this gin has also been applauded for its extraordinary taste and flavour marked by an identifiable taste of sea salt.
3. Spanish-Inspired Wedding
When you want to impart authentic Spanish cultures the day you say, “I do,” sangria, sherry and cava are your top three choices to give away as alcohol wedding favours. Sangria is a drink you can ask your caterer to prepare for your guests -- complete with all the tropical fruits that you can throw in to give it the presentation your wedding treat deserves. As a token of appreciation of your guests, however, there are ready-made sangrias available as well. Sol de Espana Sangria and Real Sangria are worth checking out. In case you need something easier to access, check out Mija Sangria.

4. Italian-Inspired Wedding
When everything Italian from the pastas to the breads, ossobuco, and risotto are on the menu, there can only be one alcohol to cap off the plate and complement all of these rich flavours than a prosecco.
