8 Excuses to Drink Tequila at Your Wedding

Shots at the ceremony? We’re not saying no.
by Maggie Seaver

If you’re a huge tequila fan, you’re probably thinking of ways to sneak it into your wedding in some form or another. Whether it’s a fully stocked tequila bar near the dance floor or waiters passing classic margaritas at cocktail hour, we know you’ll find a way to bring your first-choice liquor to the party. While you brainstorm, might we suggest one of these delicious, stylish and crowd-pleasing tequila ideas?

  1. 1. Seal the deal with a “first shot” unity ceremony. Or, you know how some couples have a champagne toast with their guests at the end of the ceremony? Hand out festive shots instead.

  2. 2. Welcome guests to the party with personalized tequila shot escort cards (and don’t forget the lime!).

  3. 3. Serve signature margaritas during cocktail hour—bonus points if your tequila drink has a sweet backstory.

  4. 4. Let them mix their own sip with a DIY margarita station.

  5. 5. Set up a second satellite bar just for margaritas.

  6. 6. Don’t forget about presentation—get creative by serving cocktails in mini tequila bottles.

  7. 7. Tequila always tastes better with a taco by its side, which means this cocktail and app duo is one of the best.

  8. 8. Tequila to-go? Don’t mind if we do. These Texas-shaped bottles of tequila are quite possibly the most perfect wedding favor.
