Tips When Choosing Wines For Your Wedding


Wine is something that is served during special or romantic meals. And what could be more special and romantic than your wedding celebration of course. While serving wine is dependent on some aspects, wine can definitely signal a fun party no matter what celebration it is. And for your wedding, serving wine maybe a small detail but still you should not just let just anyone decide on what wine you serve as this can make or break the taste of your reception food and the overall ambience of your reception party. When deciding on wine serving at your wedding, here are some considerations you need to think over.

– Your guests – The prime consideration when putting wine in your wedding should be the guests. If the bride and groom are wine connoisseurs yet the people on the guest list aren’t, then it may not be necessary to serve the most expensive wine as only people who are knowledgeable about wine will know the difference. Oftentimes in fact, inexperienced wine drinkers prefer cheaper sweet wines over aged wines. Remember that the primary purpose of having wine at your wedding is because you want them to enjoy. Enjoying wine with friends is considered to be one of the highlights of any event for wine lovers. Wines are not a pre-requisite at every wedding. It depends whether everyone will enjoy a serving of wine at your wedding or not.

– Your Budget – If you opt to have wine served at your wedding, remember that wine is not cheap. There are some that are less expensive but still they are not cheap and the cost of serving them, in wine glasses and the extra manpower cost of waiters will add up to a costly total. Consider as well the number of bottles you will need. Check whether you can serve just a single glass serving for everyone or whether you will have refills. Check your wine store and supplier for wine choices. Wine can range from the most expensive premium and exquisite wines, to a cheaper but almost equally delightfully version.

– Your Menu – Your food choices and your wine should complement each other. Your caterer should know and will be able to suggest if you need any changes in your menu. Still depending on your preference, your guests and the time of day, choose whether you will have changes in your wine choices or food choices. It is best if you do not opt for your favorite red wine if your menu includes seafood.

– Time of your wedding – If you are having a morning wedding reception, it is recommended that you skip serving wine. If your reception is in the afternoon, you can serve a few bottles of wine. For an evening wedding reception, be prepared to have an ample amount of wine along with a few spare bottles on hand.

Wine can indeed make any party more fun and livelier. On your wedding day, make sure that the heart, the stomach, and the wine palette of your guests are satisfied with your choice of wine for this special occasion.
