1. Remove the existing labels from your wine bottles

First of all, take the existing labels off your purchased wine. One of the benefits of doing this is that no one will know if you haven’t spent a fortune on your drinks! Only the hardcore wine drinkers will realise, so it’s easy to get away with saving yourself some cash.

To remove the labels, fill a bath with warm water and leave the bottles to soak for at least half an hour. After this time, it will be fairly easy to scrape off the labels with a spatula. If there’s any remaining residue from the glue, use a gentle soap to remove it.

2. Design and create your new labels

The design of your new labels is only limited by your imagination, and you may already have some ideas in mind for your bottles. You may want to include a drawing, a picture, or maybe just keep things understated with a pretty font displaying the couple’s names. If you’re struggling, look in magazines or online for some inspiration.

Use scrapbook paper, and print your design directly onto it from your computer. You can use special design software if you want to create something fancy, though Microsoft Word or Publisher will often suffice. Once printed, carefully cut out the individual labels. You may want to use special scissors to create pretty edges.

3. Attach your new labels to the bottles

Next, simply attach your labels with a strong glue. It can take a little time to get them straight, so it’s worth having a few spares to practice on! The end result will look just as professional as anything you could buy in the shops.

4. Place your bottles on the tables for your big day

The next step is the fun part – serving your wine and showing off your creations! Even if you’re serving budget drinks, when you place your bottles alongside some decent wine glasses, it will create a feeling of style and luxury.

As you can see, it really is easy to make your own wine bottle labels for your wedding. Within just a few hours, you could have created your very own special twist to add personality to your big event.

Are you looking for ways to add a touch of individuality to your wedding day? Will you be trying your own wine bottle labels?
