What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Message in a Bottle - where you have 3 wine bottles, one that says "1 year" one that says "5 years" and one that says "10 years". Guests are invited to write a message to put inside one or all of the bottles. It is lovely to think of the messages that the couple will be reading in 10 years time, especially from those that perhaps are no longer with us.
