I’ve got a fun post for you guys today! Y’all might have noticed the Share a Coke bottles with popular names back in stores around the country… have you found your name yet? I’ve definitely looked but haven’t gotten lucky thus far.
To take things totally next-level, Share a Coke is now offering a new customized bottle option you can order online to create a truly custom keepsake! The best part about the online shop is that the bottles are glass, so they truly could be used as a gift or memento to keep on your shelf for years to come.
These cute little personalized eight-ounce glass Share a Coke bottles make such a great addition to a gift, especially for all things wedding! These darling Share a Coke bottles are a true delight and the ways to use these adorable gifts are endless — think bridal party gifts, engagement photos, table settings or centerpieces, general wedding décor or party favors for your wedding guests! Wanna get really budget savvy? Use them as escort cards that double as a party favor by hanging tags from the bottles that say your guests’ table numbers.
I’d have to say though, my favorite way to use these adorable customized Coca-Cola bottles is to use them as a creative way to propose to your bridal party! I absolutely love when couples get creative and ask their best guys and gals in a unique and personal way. It’s so important to make your besties feel special and loved as you ask them to stand beside you on your big day, and surprising and delighting them with these custom bottles will do just that!
The Share a Coke bottles inspired me to create a ‘POP’ themed box, complete with other pop-themed items, as well as some cute little additions that match the classic colors of Coca-Cola. I just LOVE how this turned out! Super cute, right?
I purchased this box at Michael’s — these were on sale 60% off so the wooden box with chalkboard sides was only $6. The inside and top edges were unfinished, so I painted them with some matte black acrylic paint I had on hand to give it a more finished look. I then used a white colored pencil to sketch out the name of my gift recipient, then used Chalk Ink Pens to fill in the name on the side of the box for a more finished look.
I filled the box with paper scraps I made using my Paper Shredder. Old magazines, wrapping paper etc made quite a nice filling for the box.
Inside the box I placed a variety of themed items:
- Pop Rocks
- Ring Pop
- Popcorn in a bag
- Red, White and Glitter Nail Polish
- Red Hand Sanitizer
- Custom Notecard — download the printable below!
- and of course, the customized Share a Coke bottle.
This cute card reads:
“He asked… I said yes! Now it’s my turn to POP the question…
When it comes to friends, Sarah
You’re definitely ‘the real thing.’
Will you be my Bridesmaid?”

You can make a box for each of your bridesmaids, and be sure to include a special one for your maid of honor!
