Custom Koozies Saved My Wedding
Koozies use is effective at all times as they make the drink bottles look attractive and save the beverage taste by keeping it cold. Custom Koozies have come into demand with imprinting of personalized designs which makes them a part of the theme of the occasion.
I grew up in Miami, Florida and was always a bit of a beach bum. I lived less than a mile away from the ocean and spent all my free time swimming, surfing, and soaking up the sun. When I was a teenager, I even got a job at the local surf shop waxing and renting boards to tourists. That's also where I met my future husband, Tyler, who loved the beach just as much as I did.
Tyler and I went to college together and eventually started dating and fell in love. One day, when we were walking by the ocean at sunset, he got down on one knee and proposed. I eagerly said yes and knew that the beach would be the perfect spot to marry the man of my dreams.
Beach Weddings Come With Challenges
I always knew I wanted a beach wedding, but there's a lot of things you don't think about until you're actually planning one. Like for one, you can't get married in the summer or fall because hurricanes are constantly blowing through. Seagulls are another huge problem, as is the wind and the heat. With so much to think about, I was actually relieved when my friend invited Tyler and I to attend her beach wedding. It took place a few weeks before ours and I figured it'd be a great inspiration.
My friends wedding was in the spring, but it just so happen to be during a heat wave. The ceremony was absolutely miserable and the 100 degree heat left all the guests cranky. I heard dozens complain about how hot or watered down their drinks were due to melted ice, and while I felt badly for my friend, I was in an absolute panic. I had never even thought of that problem! Even worse? My own wedding was only three weeks away.
How To Keep My Guests From Dehydrating?
I'm not going to lie, I went home and cried. I was convinced that all my guests were going to hate me and die of heat stroke right in the middle of my ceremony. Tyler, on the other hand, wasn't quite so worried. In fact, he was sitting on the couch sipping a soda when he suggested "using these rubber things that keep drinks cold." He was, of course, referring to the koozie on his drink.
I stormed out of the room, furious that my future husband wasn't taking this problem seriously. Then... the more I thought about it... the more it started to make sense. After all, I wanted a very laid-back wedding. The whole thing was to take place outside, and I knew from experience that koozies are great at keeping drinks cold while at the beach. Maybe this could work after all.
Could Koozies Actually Work At A Wedding?
I went online and learned that you can make custom koozies that say anything you'd like. I even found the website WeddingKoozies.com, which specializes in creating elegant custom koozies for weddings. The site lets you create every part of the koozie, including color, text, and images.
I wasn't completely sold on the idea, but with less than three weeks till my wedding, I needed to do something. I dragged Tyler into the room to see what he thought of my (okay, mostly his) idea.
Tyler admitted that he was kidding at first, but the more we looked at the custom koozies, the more it actually seemed like a good idea. We already needed a few extra gifts to give our guests, and this killed two birds with one stone. Plus they were practical. We decided to make a list of pros and cons that would be the deciding vote.
The pro list had several advantages including:
• Keeps drinks cold and guests hydrated
• Cute design that fits our color scheme
• Practical gift that guests can take home
On the con list, there was only one.
• Will they get here in time?
Since the list pretty much spoke for itself, I called the company to ask about shipping. I explained the situation and to my relief, they were able to send us the custom koozies right away.
Will The Koozies Be A Hit Or Miss?
The day of my wedding rolled around and I was nervous. The weather was in the mid 80s and the sun was beating down on everyone. I was worried my guests would be too hot, or even worse, that they'd find the custom koozies to be tacky or cheap.
As I walked down the aisle, I saw several guests using the koozies on their canned drinks and a wave of relief hit me. Even after the ceremony, several people came up to me and commented on how it was such a great idea. Since most of my guests were from Florida, they all loved the idea of having such a practical gift that would keep their drinks cold.
It also helped that the custom koozies ended up being really cute. They were a beautiful lavender color with a silhouette of a palm tree and bride and groom under it. Our names and the date were also there, and since Tyler uses one regularly, he has no reason not to remember our anniversary now.
While it may not be perfect for every wedding, in my case, the custom koozies really saved the day.
