    I’d love a cute wine tote for the wedding, but will they use them again? How often do you tote around wine? I love wine but I usually dont think “wish I had my tote”. BUT you know your ladies, and if you think they’ll use them, go for it. Leave out the monogramming also.

    I think it’s really cute. I have seomthing like that and while I don’t use it all that often, it’s very useful when I do use it and people always make comments about how cool it is!

    I like it, and I like wine so for me this would be one of those things I wouldn’t buy for myself but I could see coming in handy.  If it’ll hold other bottles as well, I think it’s a cute gift and fits your theme.

    If yall are winos, I think this is a great gift.  Not sure about the monogramming though….

    I like wine (pretty much the only alcohol I drink) but I don’t think I would really use one of these. Kinda like “Oh! You look like a drunk on the go! Have this wine tote” lol. 

    Still, it is cute, fits in with your venue, and is MUCH better than the shoes!!

    I think it’s up to you, whatever you think your girls are going to use,… think they’ll love it? go for it!

    I ordered my girls totes (theknot) with their first names embroidered on the front (I have 10 girls so, if they decide to use the bags on the day of the wedding everyone’s things will be easy to identify) along with other items some for the day of the wedding, some they can use after the wedding (I might have gone overboard…) but I tried to make my decisions based on my girls, and their likes.

    ^ I found these for you on the knot wedding shop (the ones I ordered are discontinued) to give you an idea, and you don’t have to personalize them if you don’t want (I got one similar to this for being in a friends wedding, and I use it all.the.time) I use the one I got from hers for the beach, or gym, or even to take to my classroom.  It’s awesome because I don’t have to worry about things spilling on the mesh. You could slip a bottle of the before-mentioned vino or liquor in there to keep it wine-related. Heck,, theres’s even more room in the bigger tote for more wine when you girls go to your wine festivals. ๐Ÿ™‚

    just a sidenote: if a lot of your girls are engaged/going to be married soon, instead of monogramming initials, I did first names ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope it helps!

    Well, It’s really the thought that matters. I wouldn’t really be super excited about this, wine drinker or not. I don’t really need a specific item tote, I’d rather have a normal tote. And I wouldn’t monogram as peoples lasts name change.

    I think it’s a cute idea and appropriate for your wedding. If they love wine they will appreciate having a proper tote to carry a bottle over to someone’s house when they are invited to dinner.

    I would leave off the monogram.

    @hollyberry4:  No problem ๐Ÿ™‚ By a stroke of luck I thought of that before I shipped them off to be embroidered.
