As you know, I don’t really cover wedding items on FSB but every once in a while I hear about something that’s so cool I feel you should know about it and honestly, since my second favorite thing about weddings besides viking wedding rings is the open bar, this runs right up my alley.
Dom Pérignon has launched Dom Pérignon Wedding, a collection of twelve bottles of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 and an accompanying white lacquered box which holds an additional bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 (kind of like the bonus round – I imagine that’s for your wedding night, you party animals, you). The thirteenth bottle has a unique silver label which can be personalized with your names and wedding date. It’s based on the fact that years ago Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles served the beverage at their royal wedding and had the bottle engraved with their names and date (see photo below). Wedding organizers did theit job just perfect, don’t you think? Three decades later, they’re going to lift the rules and allow you to do the same. It’s an elegant keepsake to commemorate your amazing day.
Here’s where my fashion passion joins the fun: to commemorate the launch, Dom Pérignon is using a previously never seen image of supermodel Claudia Schiffer, taken by none other than Karl Lagerfeld.
We all know that Dom Pérignon is quite the favorite for posh occassions and it’s made it way around the reception of many a famous person: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, even Claudia Schiffer herself has toasted nuptials with the starburst beverage.
If you’re planning your own special day, Dom Pérignon Wedding can be purchased only by special order at Crush Wine and Spirits in New York and at other fine wine purveyors nationwide. Retail price will vary by state, but I’d definitely work this one into the catering budget. Talk about the ultimate in wedding luxury!
