Matt and I have been making our wine for about 3 years now. We decided that we wanted to do that for our wedding favors. So we're making a couple batches of Cabernet Sauvignon and bottling them in miniature bottles (187ml). We made and bottled one batch so far, and it's pretty decent wine! We got a little fancy this time and added oak chips during the fermenting process, and it actually did add a nice flavor to it. Anyway, we usually make our own labels for the wine, so why should our wedding favors be any different? We decided to use some of our engagement pictures on them. We promised Ben we'd tell him which one we chose, but I think we're going to use a few of them. That way there's a variety on the table. Here's an example of one that I came up with today.

We ended up having to cap the bottles (like beer bottles) because the corks were either too big and didn't fit all the way into the bottle, or they were too small and you could push them all the way through. So we decided to cap them instead. This way we know they're sealed! But because the caps don't look as "nice" as the corks would, we bought some ribbon to tie around the bottles. They have some cute sayings on them and I think that'll make the bottles that much more special.

I'm so excited about the favors!
