Mini Tequila Bottles

Recommended Posts

We're going to try and put nips in our OOT bags, too, but might just do bottles of beer. I've been to the Walmart down there, but can't remember if I saw nips.

 

I def think, though, that buying it down there is a much better idea. Just imagine the nips breaking in your luggage!

 

I'll be down in PV for our wedding at the end of Feb and will try and fill you in when I return!

Oh, nips are the mini-bottles that are about 2oz., enough for a shot - probably a slang thing that I picked up in college =) Like the bottles you get on the plane.

I found mini Jose Cuervo bottles at Bevmo for $2.49. I want these as my wedding favors. And want to try and have them personalized. Have any of the girls here had them for their wedding and/or had them personalized? If so, can you post a picture of there.

 

 

 

Thanks,

Brandy

We ended up buying our mini tequila bottles at a tequila tasting shop up from the "flea market." It was great because we got to taste test before we decided on one. We really like the almond tequila so we purchased 8 mini bottles as favors for the men (for the non-drinkers, we figured it was so good that even the women would like it.) They were a really big hit and many drank them the night of the wedding even though it was an open bar.

You can see them here:

I believe we paid $10 per 250 ml bottle. We probably could have found something cheaper but we didn't want to have a bad tequila and we didn't do much shopping around either.

Oh Cool. Yeah, maybe i should look into going to the flea market...i'm sure i can find some there. The table set up you have in the pic, was that like a table for only the bridal party to take the shots from? A friend of my said she seen that at a wedding before. The groom purchased tequila for the bridal party to take shots with he and his new wife.

No, that table was for the favors for the men. I didn't do a seating chart and allowed people to sit wherever they wanted. I had a table of favors set up, but the day of the wedding I forgot to pack the ladies. Unfortunately we just had a table of favors for the men.

 

I tried to find tequila in the flea market but all we could find was novelty type bottles- like little clay people with their butts hanging out molded on the bottle, etc. We just went down the street and found a tequila testing store- this one was not a timeshare ploy. They actually sold tequila without a speech.

 

You can find cheaper tequila everywhere- like actual liquor stores. We wanted to buy a really nice tequila so they would enjoy it. Not just something to use as a keepsake and never drink because it's a horrible tequila.

 

I would personally purchase the tequila there so you don't have to worry about them getting broke. We brought back several bottles of tequila and when were collecting our luggage we smelt tequila really bad. Fortunately, it wasn't our suitcase but someone elses. I imagine it broke. Thankfully, ours made it, but one did kinda leak from pressure change I believe. It didn't get on anything.

Ahhh, another good reason to pack a few gallon size zip-loc bags :) In the baggage office here we get WAY too many tequila soaked bags. And wine, too, from people coming from San Jose and Santa Rosa, CA. :)

True dat! Ours were bubble wrapped so I think it helped contain some of the leakage. I wasn't sure if I was smelling tequila on FI because everytime I turned around he was taking another shot!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
