When you want a guest book to be something than just a flip-through book, do something cool + creative like this wine guest book spotted at Paper and Lace! A sign instructs guests to “sign our wine” as they scribble names and well-wishes for you to read and enjoy while sipping on wine for years to come. Here’s how it works.
Wine Guest Book
Instead of a regular guest book, guests are invited to sign on wine bottles you have designated with 1, 5, 10, and 25 years. Guests sign on the bottle labels and you open and drink the bottle of wine on your 1st, 5th, 10th, and 25th anniversaries.
Wine Bottle Guest Book
Find a table with enough room for your wine bottles, pens, and a sign to tell guests how to sign the bottles.
You can get a sign from the shop, print, and frame.
At the table, you’ll want plenty of markers for guests to use. Word to the wise, based on experience: offer plenty of markers. I recommend a pack of 12 for a wedding of 150. I thought that would be too many, but you’d be surprised how many guests put markers back without caps (c’mon, people!). :) They dry out quickly that way.
I swear by these ultra-fine point markers because they do not bleed, do not smudge, and they are permanent. Plus, they offer a fine point so guests find it easy to write small and save room.
After the wedding, store your wine in a wine cellar. Just kidding. You probably don’t have a wine cellar; I don’t either. :) So what I do is store the wine bottle on its side and keep it in a cool, dry space away from direct heat and sunlight. You want to make these bottles last because you’ll be poppin’ bottles on your twenty-fifth anniversary… let’s make sure they still taste good! :)
I hope you enjoyed this fun wedding alternative. I wish I knew of it when I planned my own! This works for any theme, but totally fitting for a wine-themed wedding.
Anyways, you can get your own wine guest book here! Have fun with it!
