If you love fine wines and incredible landscapes, then a vineyard wedding is a perfect choice for you. We’ve put together some tips and incredible venues that are perfect for an elegant wedding with the accompaniment of great wine and a choir of cicadas rolling out from dense grapes.
Vineyard weddings are the perfect choice for those who dream of an outdoor celebration surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of nature. In this article, Cocoon Events will tell you how to celebrate a magical wedding in the midst of luxury vineyards and where to find the best vineyard wedding venues.
Couples getting married in the vineyard can look forward to some truly breathtaking photos. The picturesque landscape will be a wonderful backdrop for them. Hills, lush greenery and plenty of natural light will help to create a stunning wedding album.
How to Throw a Wedding at a Vineyard?
Romantic hilly fields, rich colors and lots of natural light are just some of the main benefits of having a vineyard wedding. However, when planning a luxurious wedding in the vineyards, there are several specifics of the location to consider to plan your wedding perfectly.
When celebrating wedding in the winery surrounded by lush vineyards, you don’t need lots of decor. The beauty of nature is the main decoration and you`ll just have to emphasize it with elegant details. For example, flow of light natural fabrics, snow-white floral arrangements and delicate artificial light that will help to maintain a festive atmosphere at dusk.
Use wine-making motifs in the decor to highlight the uniqueness of the chosen location. For example, instead of the cocktail or buffet tables, you can put wine barrels. Small, delicate flower arrangements will look great on them. Or use wine corks as coasters for table numbers or name cards for the wedding guests. These small details will help to connect all the elements of the wedding and the location.
Usually, when planning a wedding banquet, you first create the food menu, and then choose the wine pairings. But with the winery weddings you go the opposite direction. It is the wine that dictates the mood of the evening and sets the tone for the entire wedding menu. The chateau sommelier will help you choose a wine list for your celebration, so that the evening will be a real delight for connoisseurs of great food and fine wines.
What color scheme should you choose for the beautiful vineyard wedding? You can find inspiration in the wine tones – burgundy, purple and deep reds. And dark flowers will also look great against the vibrant green of the vines.
