What makes a wine or bottle stopper the perfect practical wedding favor? Itís simple: most people have or will have a bottle of wine in their homes and cork stoppers which usually come with a bottle of wine often break or are hard to use to re-seal. If you manage to re-cork the wine bottle, it may not form a good seal to keep the wine fresh and it may be difficult to re-open the bottle. Or have you ever had the cork stopper break and fall into the bottle as you try to re-open a bottle of wine! Wine stoppers answer this problem by providing a solution to this issue. You can easily seal and re-open a bottle of wine Ė keeping an open bottle of wine fresher longer. This is why wine stoppers are a great, inexpensive, practical choice for wedding favors.
Wine stoppers come in a variety of different shapes, materials, themes and colors. If you browse wedding favor and wine retailers, you will be sure to find a wine stopper which will fit your wedding perfectly. From themes such as fairytale, fall inspired, winter snowflakes, darling hearts, and blown glass designs there is a stopper to appeal to everyone.
Most wine stopper bases are made of chrome with a rubber O band or rubber ribbed bands around the middle. These bands are important because they create the seal needed to make the bottle air tight. The more bands, or the more ribbing, the better the stopper will be at fitting a variety of bottles and the more secure the seal will be. Look for stoppers which have more than one O band or a wide ribbed band to give your guests a wine stopper which will last.
Finally, if you really want to pack a punch, give your guests a wine pourer and wine stopper all in one. This combo features two pieces to the stopper. The entire piece is inserted into the bottle, and once you remove the inner tube (which serves as a stopper) you are left with the outer sleeve inserted into the bottle, which serves as a wine pourer. A wine pourer makes the wine easier to pour, without spills. It lets the air flow better into the bottle, so when you pour your wine, it flows out smoother into the glass.
If you are concerned that wine stopper wedding favors may not be for everyone on your guest list (after all dear Aunt Anne does not drink) remember this: wine stoppers can be used for all bottles which need a seal, they arenít just limited to wine bottles. And Aunt Anne may just keep a bottle of wine in the house for guests who do drink.
