Happy National Tequila Day!

At Melena Guevara Design, we believe that incorporating special parts of the couple's personality makes a wedding. For all you tequila lovers out there, here are some easy ways to incorporate your love of tequila into your wedding.


Hand Out On-Theme Favors


We love these adorable little single shot tequila bottles that come with a custom label. Guests can sip on them at the wedding or take home to enjoy and remember your amazing day. They’re so unique, they’re guaranteed to be unforgettable for your guests. PLUS, you can fill them with your favorite tequila instead of purchasing whatever's available in the mini sized bottles!

Starting at $1.72 a piece. Get them here: Customizable Tequila Bottles


Tie the Knot with a Shot

This is a newer trend, but we love it! Break up readings or long stretches of time with a quick shot between you, and your spouce. Such a simple moment that can have a ton of significance. Melena and her husband Dave integrated a shot of a Bulleit in their ceremony. It's so fun to watch, AND it makes for the perfect photo op.

Take a Shot and Find Your Spot


Another way you can integrate tequila into your wedding is by having guests find their seats with a shot and an escort card. You can also get these adorable metal shot glasses from Amazon or these custom glass shot glasses from Etsy. They’re reusable and would serve as a great favor, too! Two birds with one stone? Count us IN.


And how cute is this sign? Get it from Etsy for $17.95

Have a Tequila-Based Specialty Cocktail


If your venue/caterer allows it, this is a great way to infuse your favorite drink into your wedding. Find great recipes for margaritas, Palomas, and more on Pinterest! Here's one for a Paloma that's sure to be the star of the bar:



Vida Paloma

1/4 oz Lime juice, Fresh

1/2 oz Simple syrup

2 oz Club soda

3 oz Grapefruit juice, Fresh

2 oz Del maguey vida mezcal


Add all ingredients except club soda to shaker with ice. Shake well. Pour over ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with salt and lime. Cheers!


Here are some more ideas to get you started:



Don’t forget to have plenty of salt and lime available! Cheers!!
