As they say, "bury a bottle of bourbon a month to the day to keep the rain away."In the South, outdoor weddings are as much a part of tradition as something blue, but rainstorms can also strike suddenly, so at some point folks put their heads together for a way to avoid getting wet on the big day and came up with a buried bottle of whiskey. More specifically, it should be bourbon, and it must be buried upside down exactly one month before the big day at the wedding site. Once the deed's been done, the wedding party digs up the bottle and clinks glasses in the inevitable sunshine. Apparently, it's not just fun - it's also effective. According to John of the wedding venue website Black Mountain Sanctuary, after he saw one couple achieve a rainless wedding day by burying the bourbon, he recommends it to other couples and has yet to see any of them suffer a soggy wedding day. Sounds good to us. When do we drink?
We bought the tree of life bourbon barrel as a guest book for our wedding. It hangs on our wall now and it’s absolutely beautiful! Such a happy item to have great memories!
This was amazing! My daughter loved it and everybody thought it was a great idea as a wedding registry! We added a glass top so it may be used for years to come with the memory of their special day.
Craftsmanship was fantastic.
Thank you all for your thought process in making this! Very unique!
These tables were great. I got them two years ago, not sure why I am getting 100 emails about writing more reviews, but I really loved them and recommend them for anyone looking for a cool idea for a guest book at their wedding!
Originally bought as a guest book but I didn’t want my guests to ruin it’s beauty. So I kept it as a wall decor in my home without a bunch of dumb signatures :)
