If you’ve been to a party or a game, you might have seen them: little coats wrapped around beer bottles or soda cans, designed to keep a drink hot or cold, and stamped with a company logo. Because this coat keeps a bottle or can cozy and at the right temperature for the contents to be downed with satisfaction, it’s called a koozie – and koozies are all the rage in promotions. In fact, companies have them for their local company games, or as gifts to employees, or as giveaways at parties. Koozies are fast making their way through the corporate giveaway world. But weddings?
Would a koozie be cool or kooky at a wedding? With the right design, koozies can be a cool giveaway at a wedding. For instance, you can hand out beer or shandy bottles with koozies stamped with the names of the bride and groom. Not only are these appropriate for the occasion, they are useful for more events after the wedding. Gone are the kooky candle holders or figurines that gather dust on shelves. Koozies can be collapsed or kept, and they can be used again and again.
What might be a good design for a wedding koozie? They can come in the wedding colors (although beware the often girly pinks and purples that might keep the manly men from wrapping their beer bottles with it) or they can come in plain white, to keep with the immortal wedding color. Avoid stamping cheesy or overly romantic slogans on the koozie. Sometimes, simple is better: stick with the names of the bride and groom, along with the date of the wedding. At most, you can add a black and white picture, or a “Thanks for partying with us” to the koozie.
These are only a few tips for designing a wedding koozie. For more information, look through our koozie catalog online, and ask your friends for more tips. You can turn your wedding into a spunky, cool affair with the right koozies as giveaways.
