    I voted for the second but they are both lovely, I LOVE the icewine giveaway, what lucky guests you have! If you really wanted to use the first label you could add “and Brandy” to it!

    love this favour and love ice wine…i prefer label one.

     

    my only question is – is this going to be a problem to bring over international borders on your flight?

     

    from the EU customs website:

    Alcoholic beverages (a)

    • a total of 1 litre of alcohol and alcoholic beverages of an alcoholic strength exceeding 22% vol, or undenatured ethyl alcohol of 80% vol and over (b); or
    • a total of 2 litres of alcoholic beverages of an alcoholic strength not exceeding 22% vol.(b)
    • a total of 4 litres of still wine, and
    • 16 litres of beer (only for VAT and excise duty)

     

    but then I saw on Sweden’s website..

    There is no restriction to the amount of alcohol you may bring in, but it must be for your personal use or for your family´s use.

     

    Just wanted to let you know..i’m sure you’ve thought of this already.

    I LOVE these favours!  FI and I have talked about favours that nod to our homes; bourbon for me, maple syrup for him.  BUT, I really like the ice wine idea better than the syrup.  Would you mind explaining how you’re going to do it?  I’ve seen bottles on the smaller side, but they were still $30+ CAD.

    @eocenia:  I am going to give an annoying reply, lol. I like the second one, but only if you add in those blue flowers in the corners. I think the second one looks more balanced, but it also looks plain. I like elements of both, and I’d love to see them combined. If you don’t agree, then I would still stick with label 2.

    Also, great idea 🙂 I love ice wine and I wish I was invited to your wedding, lol.

    I love the first label!

    I tried icewine once.  It was made with the ice from the Vancouver Olympics.  Super cheesy, but it was delicious.  I would love to receive it as a favor! 🙂

    @eocenia:  THANKS!  We will certainly keep the LCBO in mind.  $3.95 (plus the horrendous HST) is do-able.  And with a little time (or perhaps shipping) we should be able to get them across the border.

    @eocenia:  The third option is perfect!

    @eocenia:  Very pretty!  I also prefer the revised version – square with blue flowers.

    From what I’ve seen elsewhere, it seems to be fairly common to include the full date of the wedding on custom labels.  Not sure if you excluded it on purpose, of course.  Perhaps this label will have multiple uses?  🙂
