Calligraphy’s just so much love­lier than a printed label!

Acces­sorise your wed­ding with these gor­geous lit­tle tags in manilla or red with your guests’ names in beau­ti­fully hand­writ­ten cal­lig­ra­phy. Coke bot­tles are nice, but with a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion you can cre­ate some­thing really fan­tas­tic by putting everyone’s names on indi­vid­ual bottles!

Pimms personalised labels

Like the idea of shar­ing a Coke with friends but need some­thing a lit­tle more classy for your wed­ding day? Pimm’s with cal­lig­ra­phy labels will do the trick!

Printed labels are fine for Coke, but for a wed­ding it’s more prac­ti­cal to use cal­lig­ra­phy for per­son­alised tags. The cost of print­ing bot­tle labels can be very high but cal­lig­ra­phy labels will cost less than £100 for an aver­age wed­ding. And just com­pare those labels… isn’t the swirly script so much more special?

Save the Coke for sum­mer days out, and share per­son­alised bot­tles of Pimm’s on your wed­ding day! See my ‘how to’ tips towards the end of the blog fea­ture today.

Coke for the sum­mer and per­son­alised Pimm’s for your wedding!

Per­son­alised bot­tles of Pimm’s won’t cost much more than… well, bot­tles of Coke!
A 500ml bot­tle of Coke is around £1.15 (Tesco price) – and bot­tles with labels won’t cost you much more than this!

Ask a few of your fam­ily and friends to buy and drink a 6 pack of San­pel­le­grino for you – I’m sure they won’t mind donat­ing the bot­tles for free! Ster­ilise the bot­tles before reusing them. Stripey straws are easy to find on Ama­zon or Ebay, and you were going to serve Pimm’s any­way, right? My cal­lig­ra­phy tags with rib­bon are only £1.15 each – the same as a bot­tle of Coke!

Every­one loves their own names on some­thing special!

Wouldn’t it be cool to have some­thing sim­i­lar to Coke’s named bot­tles at your wed­ding? Inspired by Coca-Cola but with a per­sonal twist and maybe even a vin­tage style? Look no fur­ther – it’s easy to cre­ate a gor­geous escort card dis­play with lit­tle bot­tles of Pimm’s with each of your guests’ names on! They’ll love it…

Here’s how!

  1. Col­lect cute glass bot­tles for each of your guests. I used San­pel­le­grino bottles
  2. Write lug­gage tags and attach rib­bon loops or buy online from
  3. Slip the rib­bon tags around your bottles
  4. Arrange on a table at your wed­ding recep­tion – alpha­bet­i­cal order helps!(On a really hot day you could have trays full of ice and nes­tle the bot­tles in the ice to keep them cool)
  5. Add a sign to explain how your guests should find their tables
