Dreaming of throwing a winery wedding? A vineyard is one of the most popular wedding venues, offering breathtaking views as you and your partner say ‘I do.’ From utilizing local vendors to fun wine-themed decor, here are a few important details to consider when planning a winery wedding:
Embrace the Landscape
Wineries are filled with natural beauty, creating the perfect backdrop for both your wedding ceremony and reception. Take advantage of the gorgeous landscape with the rolling hills and fresh greenery by taking your wedding photos in the vineyard rows. You can also keep the decor minimal to let the beauty of the winery truly shine.
Know the Limitations
When searching for winery venues, be sure to browse their rules for details such as any noise ordinances or music levels. Since wineries are often located in rural towns, they may have restrictions in place. Some wineries may also limit your bar options, such as only allowing you to serve their own wines. We recommend checking with the venue before booking to ensure you know all the rules.
Utilize Local Vendors
Another great perk of hosting a winery wedding is the abundance of great local vendors. Many vendors will have a list of preferred vendors to choose from as well, but you can also explore the surrounding areas for florists, bakeries, hotels for guests, DJs, and more.
Incorporate Fun Details
One of our favorite parts of a winery wedding is incorporating the fun details into every part of the wedding planning process. From using wine barrels as tables to wine corks as place holder cards, let your creativity flow. We also recommend incorporating the winery theme into your floral arrangements with earthy tones such as deep reds, emeralds, and mauves.
