Sign the Wine Guestbook & Gift {DIY}

A couple of years ago, I had the wonderful pleasure of being a bridesmaid to my BFF [and fellow LL805 blogger], Hayley.  There are so many fun details when it comes to planning weddings — some of which, include the parties and celebrations surrounding the big event.

At Hayley’s engagement party, I wanted something for the couple to have that would commemorate this celebration.  Also, I wanted it paired with a fun activity for the guests to do, while milling around the party.

Thus was born: Sign the Wine.

Here’s how to make it happen:

Step 1:  Go to a wine outlet store {I went to Total Wine in Thousand Oaks}; you can either scour the aisles [like I did] or ask a helpful sales representative [like I finally did… after 2 solid hours in the store — that place is HUGE!] to help you find wines with labels that have to do with love, marriage, dating, etc.

Step 2: Put an “event” to go with each bottle label!  Each started with “Open When…”

Here were mine:

“House Wine” – Open when… you unpack your last box in your new place!

“Double Dog Dare” – Open when… you’re feeling adventurous.

“Happy Camper” – Open when… you take your first camping trip.

“Monogamy” – Open when… you’ve been married for one year!

“Mad Housewife” – Open when… you need to make up 🙂

 Get creative!  Think of things that remind you of the couple {for example, we always go on camping trips with Hayley’s family, so I chose the Happy Camper wine} — even if you have to make it stretch a little, it adds to the fun 🙂

Step 3: Find metallic permanent markers that are safe to write on glass [which are, most importantly, are smudge-proof!].  Have guests sign the wine as they mingle at the party!

Step 4: Give the signed wine bottles to the bride and groom {or the person(s) of honor} to keep!

**hint: this would also be fun for a baby shower (for drinking after the baby is born, of course!), birthday, or anniversary party!**
