If you’re looking for clever ways to have your reception décor double as wedding favors, this is a fun idea that’s perfect for summer weddings: Bottle openers that work for escort cards, favors, and table displays!
If you’re having a small wedding, consider purchasing vintage/used bottle openers at your local thrift store or online via sites like eBay and Etsy. If you’re having a large number of people, you’d be better off buying them from a store that sells in bulk. I love these bottle openers from Pottery Barn, below.
Arrange them on a table with escort cards tied to each. Place a bottle of brightly-colored soda (such as IZZE’S) at each guest’s place setting, which they can then open with their new bottle opener. If you want to do individual place cards, string another craft tag around each bottle with guest’s names on them. To make sure people know their bottle openers are favors, write or stamp something cute on the backside of the escort craft-tag such as “Take Me Home,” “Yours to Keep,” or “To Have and To Hold.” In addition to being cute/kitschy, the bottles offer a great pop of color to your tables.
