Hmmmm…. I am getting married at a winery and they offer to do custom labels for the wine bottles, but then again, it’s all their own wine. I’m assuming your venue does not make the wine? How would this work logistically? Would you have your venue put the labels on? Or would you do it the day of?

First you need to find out if A) your venue is okay with this and B) the logistics of it.

At my friend’s wedding there were bottles of wine on the table and I actually really loved the wine so was happy to see the label so I could go out and find it again in the liquor store.

I think it’s a cute idea if you work out the logisitcs! Definitely not a necessity, though.

What color are the labels currently on the bottle? I think it is going to be harder to cover them well than you think, unless you are doing a dark design on the labels you are printing.

Mr TTR is a HUGE Wine Affectionado, and so that has “poured over” (pun intended) into my life so let me give you some of my concerns / info / tips in this regard

* First most folks who do those customized labels you see on Websites are doing so in Venues where they can BYOW (bring your own wine) and more often than not it is wine they made themselves at one of those “Brew Houses”


* As another Bee has said it happens at a Winery (often the Venue), where the couple has chosen to have a selection of wine labelled for them and their occasion

* If you DIY… it will be much more work and a possible headache.  As others mentioned you’ll need info ahead of time as to what the wine bottle looks like (different bottles have different dimensions etc) and the label sizing… and if there is a label on the back etc

* AND as others have said, you’ll have to ensure that YOUR labels are capable of covering the other label completely… with no “show thru”

* And lastly the whole logistical element… you’ll have to coordinate with the Venue so all tis can happen in the timeframe BEFORE the Wedding Day.

Could be a great idea IF all the variables work… could be a HUGE headache if they don’t

Hope this helps,
