In case you’re looking for wedding wine label ideas I’ve been watching what brides are ordering. I’m sharing 8 unique ideas for wedding wine labels that are anything but your standard labels. The days of mandatory bride + groom + date + wine type are over and it’s fun to see couples get creative using our online label studio. More brides are using personalized wine for weddings including out-of-town welcome baskets, bridal showers, table décor, bachelorette parties and receptions.
Trending for this year are:
With the popularity of Instagram and other social media, brides are adding their personalized wedding hashtags to wine labels. This enables anyone to snap a smart phone photo at gatherings from showers to bachorette parties to the wedding and upload it with a wedding hashtag to create an instant photo gallery of memories.

Mini Wine Bottles
Mini wine bottles or liquor bottles with a personalized label are definitely trending this year. According to Huffington Post, “Cutesy favors … wind up in the garbage. If it’s not food or alcohol, no one actually wants it.” See our Definitive Guide to Mini Wine Labels if you want to incorporate this trendy idea in your wedding festivities.
Save the Date
For close friends and family members the bride and groom are eschewing the traditional paper announcement of the past and presenting a bottle of wine bearing a Save the Date label. It’s a stand out idea allowing you to give different wines for different tastes.
Thank You to Family & Friends
Whatever the wedding budget, a bride knows that to successfully pull off an amazing wedding it takes the help of family and friends. Grateful brides are giving wine bottles with personalized thank you notes to parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and close friends. This thoughtful idea is timeless.
Wedding Weekend Timeline
When designed correctly, a label listing the wedding events is a clever idea for wine bottles. The timeline label lets guests know the details for cocktail hour, dress attire, reception details, brunch and so forth. Some brides are including venue addresses and event times. In this example the bride chose our 5 x 5 inch custom square sticker from the Make Your Own category.
I’m also seeing couples announce their engagement with personalized bottles of wine. This smart idea works for the simple reason that getting engaged calls for a toast!
Speaking of non-traditional wine labels; brides are making menu labels listing the dinner courses. A very clever idea don’t you think? Instead of wondering what’s next the guests can enjoy a glass of wine and look at the bottle to see the next course.
Photo Wine Labels
This trend shows no sign of slowing down and will probably never go out of style. Wine labels with photos have been fairly traditional for the last decade. They’re definitely a popular choice for asking a friend to be a member of the wedding party. Photo wine labels are easy to make using the ADD IMAGE tool in the online designer. The photo should be 300 pixels per inch for best clarity. Many of our pre-designed wedding templates allow space for a photo, or you can make one from scratch starting at the MAKE YOUR OWN link at the upper right of the website.
