Drink Koozies Weddings, Bachelorette Parties & Bridal Showers | By Sip Hip Hooray | http://emmalinebride.com/favors/drink-koozies-weddings/

When you think of drink koozies (aka can coolers), the first adjective that comes to mind probably isn’t the word beautiful by any stretch of the imagination. But the latest koozies on the market for use as bridal shower favors or wedding favors are exactly that! The brilliant typography, bold pops of color, charming one-liners and personalized details on these can coolers from Sip Hip Hooray have forever changed my mind. Guests will actually use these koozies again — proudly! — on patios, at the beach, on the front porch, poolside, and of course, at your wedding reception. And while many people associate drink koozies for use with beer or cider, you’ll be happy to know they’re functional on any can or bottle (including lemonade, iced tea, and your favorite soda pop). Unlike other wedding favors, these drink koozies also serve an important function: to keep drinks cold.

Take a look at these surprisingly beautiful can coolers and be sure to grab a few extra when you order. We don’t think there will be any leftovers! Cheers!

We recently spotted the most beautiful copper mug favors at this Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park wedding and were eager to replicate it ourselves. Copper mugs make excellent wedding favors for guests. And while a copper mug looks cool, that’s not the only reason why people love to drink out of them.

As a matter of fact, the mug is named after the drink commonly served in them: The Moscow Mule. It is made of ginger beer, lime, and vodka (get a recipe here). I haven’t tried one myself (yet!), but apparently a Moscow Mule is served in a copper mug because the cold metal enhances its taste. The cold copper also increases the amount of the bubbles in the carbonated ginger beer, so you get more fizziness in a copper mug than in a regular glass or plastic container. So, now that you know why people are crazy for these copper mugs, it’s time to talk about how to make your own copper mug favors for guests to take home. Find out more below on how to make these copper mugs more affordable, see a cute mini version, and get a FREE printable sign to use at your wedding! Enjoy!

Mirror Bar Menu — Handmade-a-Day

This mirror bar menu is today’s handmade-a-day find! Check out our archives here.

If you are going to make signature cocktails a part of your reception menu (and we think you should because it’s a fun detail, alcohol or alcohol-free), you will want to draw attention to it like a pro! We love when couples use interesting signage (like any of these chalkboard wedding signs or these welcome signs) to draw attention to an aspect of their reception. For instance, this mirror bar menu is one sign that will definitely attract guests. The hand-lettering is gorgeous, too! And you can reuse this ornate mirror in your home after the big day.

We received this Ask Emmaline question from Britney yesterday and it’s a good one! She asks,

I am looking for mason jars with handles and lids for a decent price. I have had no luck and I am starting to worry I wont find any. Also, do you have any ideas or any way to cover the mason jar before the guests get to their drinks?” Fantastic question! With mason jar drinking glasses being so popular at weddings, we’ve had numerous requests from brides-to-be asking where to buy them. And, keeping those mason jars covered before guests grab them for drinking is an important detail to note. Read on to see our response…
