Since Mr. Vino and I got married at a winery, we simply took empty red wine bottles, removed the labels and using sticker paper printed out the menu of courses and wine pairings in the same style as our other stationary and just affixed it to the empty bottles. As you can see the table was pretty crowded with all of the glasses/place settings etc so we really didnt have room to put something extra on top

@jg awe thanks happy wedding planning!!
FYI if you want to do cork place card holders which we definitely wanted/we saved special corks the whole year and then ran out of time
there’s a super easy trick someone mentioned recently that i wish i had known about!
just glue one horizontal cork on top of another so you have a stack of two horizontal logs if you will and then glue one cork horizontally in front of the stack so its touching the base of the first cork– so you’re basically making a cork easel to slide the card into
uses more corks but so much easier than cutting it
this is the way we wanted to do them and i tried a few and it took forever/i wasnt so handy with the utility knife but others had some fancy tools to help them which probably made it much much easier!
