There are many people who will give well meaning advice when you’re planning your wedding, but one thing I know for sure is what’s on the menu for your wedding is important. If you’ve carefully planned your menu then you also want to share the cuisine in an incredibly impressive manner. Why not introduce the food in style with a menu on a wine bottle label?
A wine label menu is taking the standard paper menu to the next level. It’s eye-catching and unexpected, but oh so chic! I think you’ll be excited to see how many options there are to create a wine label menu for each of your table settings. It can be free-style or match your wedding invitations. Either way it’s guaranteed to bring a touch of personalization to your wedding day.
Make a Wedding Menu into a Wine Label from a Digital File
#1 – Start with the Wine Bottle Style
The bottle of wine you plan on using determines what size label works for your menu. Two common bottle styles are Bordeaux and Burgundy. These are the two I’ll reference for creating your wedding wine label menu.
For the 750 ml size Bordeaux bottle both the standard wine label 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches high and the large wine label 4 inches wide by 6 inches high fit. For more impact I think you’ll want to go with the large wine label considering many printed paper menus for weddings run 5 inches wide x 7 inches high. Plus, the large wine label size will easily accommodate a menu. Should you choose a burgundy style bottle then we recommend the standard wine label 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches high.
#2 – Get the Digital Menu File from Your Planner
After you choose your menu label size you’ll want to get the digital file of your menu. Your wedding planner or the company you purchased your wedding set from should be able to email it to you. This file should be 300 pixels per inch resolution and the file format must be either JPG, PDF or PNG. Save it to your PC, laptop or tablet.
#3 – Upload the Digital Menu File
Start on the Make Your Own tab and choose the label size you determined from the bottle style. On the next page choose the quantity and click Design Online. Once in the online designer add your digital file by clicking the IMAGES button to the left of the design canvas. The designer will let you browse your files to upload your digitized menu. Follow the steps to place your order.
