Wedding favours should reflect the couple and their wedding location, theme and style. Wine bottles make ideal wedding favours for a couple who pride themselves on being wine connoisseurs, have an Italian-themed wedding or get married in a vineyard. Choosing the perfect wording for the label depends on the couple, their personalities and what message they want to convey to their wedding guests.
Formal wine labels are appropriate if your wedding is formal or semi-formal. Consider using the name or type of the wine, followed by your names and wedding date in the same script or font. Use a quote that you both enjoy with a specific mention of wine, such as this:
"Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup And I'll not look for wine." Ben Jonson c. 1573--1637
Write a short poem that pertains to the love and life you share, and the wine you're giving out, if either of you have a way with words.
Play off the wine name or your own names for the labels. For example, write "Pinot Grigi-O so in love." Use your own names, initials or monogram in a fancy font. Center the writing inside a grapevine heart. Write something that incorporates your appreciation for your guests and your names, such as "The Smith Winery---We appreciate the time you took to share this special day with us." Make up completely new names for the wine that incorporate your pet names for each other, your nicknames or your first names to make it more personal.
Create labels that show off something personal, such as where you met, became engaged or are getting married. Write something such as "From 'I will' to 'I do.' Please enjoy a bottle of wine from where it all began" if the wine comes from the winery where you were officially engaged. Use a short and silly line, such as "Like good wine, marriage gets better with age," if you're both known for your sense of humour.
A picture of the two of you with your names and wedding date can accompany a simple "Thank you for sharing our special day" or similar sentiment. If you want something lighthearted and catchy, use "A bottle of red for joining us as we wed," or "A bottle of white for joining us on our big night." Basic sentiments of appreciation, including the words "Thanks for coming" or "Thank you for blessing our wedding day with your presence," are appropriate. The French proverb, "In water one sees one's own face, but in wine one beholds the heart of another," or something similar is also fitting.
