The Cherry on Top of the Bottle
Tying the knot can be very expensive and there’s no way around it. However, bottle hangers are very affordable and can be squeezed into your budget if you go about the right steps.
On the most important day of your life, you no doubt want everything to be perfect, right down to the smallest detail. So to add that extra special detail, you should invest in bottle decorations to add the cherry on top.
A small detail such as a bottle hanger will catch all of the guest's attention and create a memento of the day that some of them might take home and keep. Some creative ways to make the hanger stand out are, personalised text in which could be used to express your gratitude for the guests coming or the classic ‘Mr and Mrs’. Also, the shape and size of the decoration can be customised depending on your design preference and size of the bottle.
Bottle neck tags come in many different shapes and sizes, there is the traditional rectangular tag with a message on. But with the popularity growing, new designs have been brought out, such as bottle sleeves, collars, and banners.
If you want to take bottleneck decoration to the next level, you can add small decorative features like a ribbon for an elegant touch or perhaps some ropey string for a rustic vibe. Another decoration could be stick-on artificial flowers, fairy lights, or glitter.
Choosing a Wine
If you are on a budget, it will be worth your time (and money) to buy in your own bottles of wine, rather than being caught out by the over-priced and limited menu at the venue. Even with added decoration to your bottles, it will more than likely work out cheaper than relying on the venue for drinks.
Choosing a wine for the big day can be difficult - which wine compliments the food? Which wine will be enjoyed by everyone? How many bottles will we need? You should plan for your guests to have around half a bottle of wine each, so around 2-3 glasses each. In terms of choosing a wine, go with one that will be enjoyed by the majority there rather than a wine that compliments the food. Another consideration is your budget; whether it is £5 or £50 per bottle, you will find the perfect wine for you by having a taste of them to see which is the most suitable.
For the traditional champagne toast, you should plan for each guest to around half a flute of it, so you will only need one bottle to go around 10 people! Or if you are strapped for cash, you can look around for a quality Cava or Prosecco to replace it; as the taste and brewing methods are very similar.
