    I've decided to do the message in the bottle for my STD. But I have a question for those of you have already done this. How did you get the scroll out of the bottle? Did you attach a string to it or something? I'd hate to send them to everyone and they not be able to get the invite out.

      That was kinda the joke going around.... I dont know if just didnt invite the most intelligent people to the wedding or what but sooooo many people tipped the bottle over to get it out.... Hello? There is sand in there, and glitter, and seshells and on and on... SO needless to sai I didnt do anything I heard alot of stories though on how they tried to get it out...

        I tied the scroll with a piece of raffia that then came out of the bottle and tied around the cork and neck. It was very easy to pull out of the bottle, but still had some people do what Saraha's guests did and tip it over :)

        Check out this thread for how we did ours. We ended up getting twine and tying it around each rolled up postcard, then up, out, and around the bottle top and held in place by waxing the cork on. Then pull the rope to break the wax, and out comes the message!

          I didn't make them but I agree, if you don't tie something around them, they will unroll/expand and will be difficult to get out. I love the ones with the string/raffia tied around it and then attached to the cork so it's really easy for your guests to pull out your message.

            this is exactly what i did too, but when i started calling people to ask if they got their invite NO ONE had taken the scroll out of the bottle. They all thought it was too pretty and didn't think they would be able to put it back together. My aunt said she wanted to look at it for a few days before she opened it.

              we tied a piece of raffia around it to keep it closed, and had another long piece thru the top which went around the cork. so when you pulled the cork, you pulled the invite.

              however, many people didn't re-tie them to put the scroll back in, and then they had a problem...but i did my part

                I made my invites using the message in a bottle concept and used hemp rope that wrapped around the invite and went through the cork. Here's the thread on it: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t15138
