Personalized Wedding Shot Glasses Guest Favors

At first, it may look difficult to find a gift that our friends and family will find both useful and visually interesting. However, personalized wedding shot glasses are a good example of “practical” and “aesthetical” guests favors.

Many people argue that they don’t want to pay a fortune for favors. I agree with that 100%. Especially if, like most couples getting married, a large proportion of the expenditure is at their charge.

Unfortunately, most people decide to give a symbolic favor to their guests hoping it will be a meaningful reminder of the couple’s magical wedding day.

Unfortunately, many of those well-intentioned gifts end up unused and toss in a souvenir box where they will most likely lose their initial meaning.

Here are some shooter glasses ideas and personalizations to make your wedding favors unforgettable keepsakes.

Engraved shooter glasses



Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and Guest Favors

Here are two ways to engrave your personalized shooter glasses: Engraved and printed.

Engraved favors are one of the best ways to give a long lasting and personalized keepsake to your loved ones. On the other hand, the main reason to choose a printed personalization is that you want it to be a certain color.

So if you are ready to make that small compromise, colors will definitely give your personalization a stunning vibrant touch.



Engraved Vs Printed Shot Glasses

Engraved customizations will last longer than printed texts. The reason for this is that they are made by lightly cutting the glass surface to obtain a specific pattern like words or a shape.

Goods with printed texts simply tend to come off faster if they are not properly cared for. For example, using scrubbing pads to remove lipstick stains or sticky liquor residues can damage the printed finish.

This is especially true if the glasses are to be washed in the dishwasher frequently. Otherwise if washed by hand with a soft cloth, printed glasses should look nice for years to come.


Shot glasses are easy to engrave with celebration-related texts for the engagement or bachelor party, bridal shower, and the wedding day.

Plain, Useless, and Forgotten Favors: How to Avoid Them

Let’s face it, we all have one of those objects that were given to us with no particular use.

Here’s a small exercise: try to remember the last time you attended a wedding. Ok, now that you got an image, try to remember what was the favor you received?

If you can’t, this is perfectly normal and there’s nothing to feel guilty about. The reason why you can’t remember this cute little candy tulle or paper bag is that you ate the content and left the packaging somewhere, anywhere.

Sure there was a pretty paper tag with a somewhat generic note saying “Thank You, love, Jess & Taylor” attached to it but you simply couldn’t find any reasons to keep it.

It’s not big enough to be used as a glass coaster, it has no magnet to put on your fridge, it’s not an inflatable device, nor does it make bubbles…

Heck, you probably would have kept it if it was at least glowing in the dark. No, the only way to give this gift a second life is to recycle it.

In the city’s recycle plant. Period.



From “Generic” to “Fantastic” Shot Glasses

Avoiding the boring and useless wedding favor is crucial. At this point, you already have a great gift idea that your guests will be able to reuse. Good starting point.

Now, what takes a favor go from “Meh…” to “Wonderful!” is the customization quality and how it will be given to them.

As an example, you could simply put it there on the table next to between the plates, cutlery, wine glasses hoping that they will notice it.

Or you can serve it to them filled with your favorite liquor or shot recipe as a welcome drink, use them to create a unique seating chart or fill them with something unusual!
