Embrace the romance of a vineyard for your wedding destination. Exchange vows amid a kaleidoscope of lush green foliage with plump grapes upon the vine. Fine wine and love go together like Romeo and Juliet. Choosing a vineyard or winery for your wedding location is easy with a little know-how and ingenuity. Read on for tips and suggestions for a vineyard wedding.

Choosing a Vineyard

There are many types of vineyards to choose from including small family vineyards with rustic charm to large, modern and sophisticated facilities. When selecting a vineyard it is imperative to visit the grounds in advance to make sure the environment offers the amenities and atmosphere you desire for your wedding. Be sure to inquire about how many guests may be accommodated, how much are basic fees, what are the hourly rates and costs for any extras.  Inquire about weekday discounts or off-season savings for fall or winter weddings. Check to see if there is an area dedicated for receptions, dancing and music. If inclement weather should occur, ask if there is an on-site space available to serve as back-up. Inquire if catering services are exclusively offered by the vineyard or if outside caterers and vendors are welcomed. Make certain that there is ample parking for guests as well as suitable restroom facilities. Lastly, inquire if minors are allowed.

Colors & Themes

Choose colors for your wedding by drawing inspiration from the surrounding wine country from California to France. Allow the landscape to engage your visual senses with a vineyard pallet featuring an array of mint greens, translucent celadons, champagne golds and deep purples. Accent your color choices with a variety of neutral and earth tones including  black, white, khaki, clay, sand or gray. Add a pop of color such as burgundy or sky blue. If possible, find a way to blend your wedding color choices with the hues of the vineyard.

Vineyard Invitations

Bring your colors and theme into your invitations and save-the-date cards. Use vineyard inspired wording such as ‘May our love flourish like a fine wine, growing stronger over time’. Feature artistic touches such as graphic renderings of a grape bunch and verdant vines on your invitations and save-the-date cards. Art ideas include wine glasses, wine bottles and watercolor scenery of the wine country.

Ceremony & Reception Ideas

Celebrate your wedding ceremony outside with a magnificent view of the vineyard. Make sure to have the correct wine glasses available for the different types of wine. Create centerpieces that use elements from the vineyards such as grape leaves, grapevine wreaths or local flowers. Have custom labels created for your wine bottles. Bestow guests with favors such as wine corks, wine charms or small bottles of wine from the winery.
