FI and I went to the Bridal Expo here in Honolulu last weekend (Cari - did you go?), and we had so much fun!
We came across Oeno's booth - they are a "winery" and basically they sell wine that you make yourself! You have to buy a whole barrel, but you can get 28-31 bottles per barrel. So last night we headed out there for a free tasting so the owner could advise us on what to get.
Since we are taking our honeymoon a few weeks after the wedding, and my family will still be here in town a few days later too, we are going to host a bottling party with some food about 3 days after the wedding! They will all get to keep a bottle or two and we get to customize our own labels.
My family is SUPER into wine, so this is a perfect gift to just say "thanks for coming out to celebrate". We are inviting some of FI's local family and a few friends too so it will be a fun time. Plus we got a discount thanks to the Expo! Yay!
Just an idea for any of you other brides out there
We thought about doing it before the wedding but I think it will be too hectic!
