Inspiration Board: Wine

Wine is something to be savored and enjoyed - much like your wedding - so this classic beverage is a great source of inspiration.

A vineyard is a great backdrop for a wedding because of its natural beauty and interest. In many cases, the decor is already in place: bottles, vines, barrels, and the sprawling hills all provide instant atmosphere. Simple touches like candles and centerpieces will personalize the space.

Before booking a vineyard take a day trip to the site and, if possible, in the same season as your wedding. You can better judge the view your guests will have - a vineyard looks significantly different in March than it does in October.

If the location isn't possible, integrate the benefits of a vineyard into your reception. Some options include spending a chunk of your budget on great food, give half bottles of wine or wine openers as your favor, use grapes and other edible elements as the centerpieces, use a grape motif in your stationary, or offer wine parings with your menu.

Eat, Drink, and be Merry!
