A Lasting Way to Personalize Your Special Day!

Sand engraving on glass is fast becoming a popular form of art. Not only can you create a unique, one of a kind, personalized wine bottle for your wedding guests, but you can purchase a few extra bottles yourselves to enjoy on your anniversaries to come.

Today you can customize almost anything glass. Toasting flutes inscribed with the brides' and grooms' names and wedding dates have always been a tradition. Now a hot new trend to consider is a custom monogram engraved on your wine bottles and guest glasses. With the increased interest in serving wine at the reception dinner you can really make it fun with the additional personal touch of engraving. Plus engraved glasses make a great keepsake, and they could even be used as seating cards by putting each guest's name on his or her own glass.

Engraved wine bottles and glasses also make great gifts for the wedding party, parents and grandparents. Spend a little more on theirs and select a wine to match each individual's taste. You can also personalized each bottle with their name and a thank you message just from the two of you. This can also be a fun gift for out of town guests.  Leaving an engraved bottle in each of their hotel rooms with a basket of goodies will definitely make a grand impression.

Visit our store, The Little Cellar Wine Company and see what other items are available for personalization. Money clips, photo frames, jewelry boxes, and others seem to be other engravable favorites. Engraving will make a guaranteed keepsake that is far from ordinary. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination!
