Go for An Outdoor Wedding Venues

Well, suppose you have decided that you are not going to have a traditional wedding ceremony in a house of worship, as you have planned to host an Italian-themed wedding and want to go all Italian even with your wedding venue. In that case, you must look for wedding venues that offer incredible and panoramic vistas. It will be a cherry on the cake if your outdoor wedding venue overlooks the Italian countryside, this way your wedding guests will experience the genuine and authentic Italian vibes on your wedding day.

Get Wed By the Waters to have The True Italian Vibe Added To Your Wedding Day

Of course, getting hitched to the love of your life overlooking mesmerizing and sparkling waters makes even a low-key wedding celebration a luxurious and incredibly romantic celebration. And if we talk about the waterfront wedding locations that give the full Italian vibes, then the Amalfi Coast is widely known for its charming and exquisite seaside views. Gracefully lining the Tyrrhenian Sea, this lovely seaside wedding location is nothing but short of picturesque with enchanting views of turquoise-hued water as far as the eye can see. Offering endless romantic and fantastic wedding photography and videography opportunities, getting hitched on a sea is indeed a beautiful idea in order to bring endless Italian vibes to your Italian-themed wedding.

Embrace the Old-World Details For a Perfect Italian-Themed Wedding

Of course, Italy is full of classic and enchanting old-world details, so it will be a great idea if you are considering adding all those elegant old-world details to your Italian-themed wedding to make it more authentic and relatable.

How Much Bougainvillea is Enough Bougainvillea?

Shop for Lace Wedding Dress to Be the Best Italian Bride on Your Wedding Day

But a conservative yet stunning and elegant attire is preferred for weddings, majorly when they are taking place in a house of worship.

This kind of wedding dress will be a great addition to your Italian-bridal look on your wedding day!

Choose Ornate High Heels For Your Wedding Shoes

And if you are planning a romantic Italian-themed wedding for your big day celebration, consider going for ornate high heels. We all know that Italy is home to some of the biggest fashion and couture houses in the world including famous and lavish designers like Missoni, Versace, Gucci, Prada, and Valentino.

Wines and Greenery Should Be a Must-Add Element to Your Wedding Day Decor

So, now it is decided that you are going for a classic and splendid Italian-themed wedding, how can you not add greens and vines to your wedding day decor? An authentic Italian-themed wedding is all about beautiful greens and vines. And the best way to bring greens and vines together in the perfect combination to your wedding day decor is simply by adding them to your wedding reception table setting. While going for this classic Italian table setting combination, you can consider opting out of a traditional table runner. You can consider garnishing the reception tables for your wedding reception with vines, grape leaves, or even garlands of lush greenery. Ample foliage, along with some aromatic votive candles, and gold flatware, will definitely make for a beautiful and enchanting complement to a memorable and elegant Italian-inspired display. This kind of table setting will lend great photography options to our affordable wedding photographers.

Celebrating With Citrus and Herbs is Always a Great Idea to Bring In Italian Vibes to Wedding Day

The beautiful region of Capri is well known for its fresh citrus. And certainly, lemons are at the top of that list. One more fact about the Capri region is that it is also a fruitful location for growing herbs, such as thyme. So, why not bring all these beautiful natural elements to your wedding day decor to evoke the feeling of the region in the best possible way. We can assure you that your wedding guests will have something really unique and out-of-the-ordinary to witness on your wedding day and so will our creative wedding photographers in terms of wedding decor.

Grapes and Tablescape Always Make a Perfect Combination for an Italian-Inspired Wedding Table Setting

While talking about Italy, the one that comes to everyone’s mind is wine. It is quite impossible for someone to talk about Italy and not think of wine anytime. After all, Italy is one of the world’s biggest producing regions when it comes to wine, and we are pretty much sure that there are various wineries turning grapes into wine on the Amalfi Coast. So, when it comes to wedding day tablescape setting, it is quite easy and also a creative way to bring in this element to your wedding day decor without going over the board. You can consider adding a fine and delicate touch of fresh grapes alongside greenery will definitely make your wedding reception table setting feel all the more inspired.

Allow Your Wedding Guests to Dine in Family-Style

Well, of course, your wedding day is nothing but a grand celebration and it is the time for all your loved and close ones to be together at the same fun and have all the fun of their time together. So, consider bringing everyone together just like they are a big family. You can consider bringing in one long reception table as it is indeed a great way to make everyone feel included and to facilitate conversation. If you opt for this setup, just be sure your centerpieces aren’t too tall to block the view of the people sitting in front of each other.

Don’t Forget to Get Playful With the All-Time Favorite Italian Dish- Pizza!

It goes without even saying that pizza is an Italian tradition. So, when you are planning to have an Italian-themed wedding it will be a great, perfect, and of course, an extremely delicious way to bring a taste of Italy to your wedding day menu. All you have to do is to work with your caterer to choose classic options and majorly loved by the majority, such as Margherita or Neapolitan, for a playful and fun wedding day menu addition!

Toast With Prosecco For The Ideal Italian Vibes

If you can’t get to Italy for your Italian-themed wedding, you can always bring Italy to you! All you have to do is to get a bottle of champagne from France’s Champagne region to be considered real, prosecco must be produced in the Veneto region of Italy, north of the Amalfi Coast. While having the finest wine, all you have to do is raise a toast to the inspiration behind your classic Italian-themed wedding simply just by popping the top off a bottle of prosecco and sipping it with all your wedding guests.

Don’t Forget the Traditional Italian Dessert for Your Italian-Themed Wedding

Well, there is no denying that it is always a great idea to celebrate your special day with a cake adorned with citrus, as it will always make a beautiful choice if you are going in for an Italian-themed wedding. But, as you are going in for a true and authentic Italian wedding and paying attention even to the smallest details, it is always a great idea to bring in a more traditional Italian dessert to your wedding day dessert table for your wedding guests to relish the true taste of Italian dessert. For the best Italian dessert, you can consider bringing in the layered mille-feuille, traditionally prepared with Chantilly cream and plenty of berries for a mouth-watering taste.

Consider Gifting Limoncello As Wedding Favors to Your Wedding Guests

While limoncello is being so popular all over Italy, much of this liqueur is produced throughout the Amalfi Coast region. The beautiful citrus lemons in this exemplary area are just unique in the way they hang on the tree longer and ultimately produce fruit double in size. So, while you are planning an Italian-themed wedding, try your best to embrace the tradition of turning these beautiful lemons into limoncello and thus offer mini bottles to all your wedding guests in a beautiful welcome bag or as a unique escort card so that they can give it a try or you can also consider giving them as the wedding favors!

Summing everything up in a nutshell, all we wanna say is that the goal of hosting a classic and romantic Italian-inspired wedding, should highly focus on creating an upbeat, welcoming ambiance that bridges the gap between elegance and playfulness! As much as Italians love their traditions and sophistication, they also go all grand and huge on having fun and living in the moment—so don’t worry about taking things too seriously, when you are planning your Italian-themed wedding while not being in Italy!

Luxe Ways to Wow Your Guests At Your Wedding Reception

Make your wedding guests go “wow” before they even enter and ensure that they leave a little dazzled with these luxe wedding reception ideas!

 

Make your wedding guests go “wow” before they even enter and ensure that they leave a little dazzled with these luxe wedding reception ideas!

Surely your wedding day is something that you and your partner look forward to with all the anticipation and love in your hearts. However, your wedding guests make your wedding reception the celebration that it is. They not only bring with them the good wishes for your happily-ever-after to start with all the positive vibes, but they also bring to the table the happy glow of pleasant company and the iridescent promise of a good time. When you look back at your wedding day decades from now, you will think back to the way your guest cheered as you kissed your lover after you said “I do”, how your aunt made that funny toast or how your college girlfriends rocked the dance floor! After all, it’s all about the warm glow of the people which envelops you and makes your wedding day such a joy, isn’t it?

While the precious names who made it to your guest list add such a precious touch to your special day, you might want to make your wedding reception equally memorable for them! While all wedding receptions are a pleasure to attend, it’s the ones that truly wow the guests over which are remembered forever, the anecdotes of which live on far beyond the wedding day flowers! Here are some amazing ways that you can wow your wedding guests and leave them feeling warm, welcome, and a little mind-blown! It’s all about going big or going home here!

Welcome them with a drink

There is something about a welcome drink that instantly makes one feel special! Consider offering out glasses of champagne as wedding escort cards in addition to your standard welcome drink. Replace traditional escort cards with individually named champagne flutes, which will ensure that everyone arrives at their tables and is ready to toast in one step. This will make a terrific first impression on your guests!

Exit with a bang

What better way to end a wedding reception than with a fireworks display? A jubilant firework show will add excitement to your ceremony exit or nighttime reception. Alternatively, give your guests sparklers and champagne to hold while they accompany you to your getaway car at the end of the night. Remember to check with your location to see if pyrotechnics and sparklers are permitted.

Consider a quick change!

For the wedding reception, the bride and groom dress in a contemporary style. Because all eyes will be on you at the reception, it’ll be a pleasant surprise when you switch from your traditional wedding gown to a shorter, flirtier second dress. You can go for completely different dresses or two-in-one wedding dresses which can be easily transformed. If you wish to keep your wedding gown, make additional style modifications such as letting your hair down, swapping shoes, or adding a few fresh items of jewelry.

Hand out kits!

With wedding favor kits, you can anticipate their needs! Your guests will enjoy it, whether it’s hangover kit wedding favors or a cute emergency kit for the morning after. You might include hangover remedies such as aspirin, water, and energy snacks to help them get back on their feet after a night of celebrating. You can also have summer essential kits, or themed kits as they arrive to get them excited about your chosen venue, theme, or activities!

Add drama with flowers

Big is more when it comes to flowers which impress! How about using cabbage roses as table centerpieces for your wedding reception? On your reception tables, go big with tall, over-the-top centerpieces. Cabbage roses and ranunculus, for example, create a bold impact when paired with a neutral color palette. You can have them arranged in clear glass vases for a clean yet impactful look. If big flowers are not your style, go for flower installations instead! We have a soft spot for Baby’s breath cloud-like overhead installations over here, and it will surely get all the guests to go “wow!”

Provide luxe lounge areas

With a hint of effortless luxury, set up your outdoor lounge area for your wedding reception. Create a lounge space with comfortable couches, chairs, and enough pillows for visitors to mingle between dance breaks. It’s the ideal technique to keep everyone involved in the celebration, even if they’re not dancing. Set up luxe poufs, velvet pillows, and comfy throws, and the more mismatched it looks, the better the effect. This can also be a great area for some dramatic group photography!

Hang low chandeliers

It’s true! A chandelier adds that luxe element to any event! There is something about the intricately cut glasses and crystals that reflect light most gloriously, and makes any setting elegant! If you are hosting an outdoor wedding reception, consider handing low chandeliers and watch your setting light up! When it comes to planning your outdoor event, the options are unlimited. Low-hanging chandeliers and delicate blooms can be used to decorate the space. You can have it glam, gothic, or vintage as you would like, depending on the chandelier you choose. Instead of circular tables, arrange everyone at banquet tables to create a more intimate setting.

A feast for the eyes

Sure, the wedding feast will fill the stomach, but it’s the winning display that makes half the impression! So go all out with your food displays, whether that’s creative salad bars, charming dessert tables, or wow-inducing chocolate fountains and fondue arrangements! This also holds for vintage champagne towers with cascading champagnes making quite the scene! You might also go for a vintage wedding cake presentation with details all around the cake. Use glittering lights, loads of blooms, and a unique stand to dress up your cake presentation. You can also go for cute ice cream trucks, cotton candy carts, and popcorn carts which are not just for utility but hugely add to the aesthetic!

A groom’s cake that impresses

After all, why not? A groom’s cake, whether it’s a Red Sox–themed one or a Star Wars-themed one, will undoubtedly make your guests’ jaws drop. Choose a second cake that appears too genuine to eat and collaborate with your spouse on a theme that best suits you both. Include a non-cake delicacy like doughnuts, varied pies, cookies, or an ice cream bar, as well as an inside joke, a favorite activity, or a favorite hobby.

Late-night bites

Who doesn’t like late-night snacks after hours of dancing, drinking, and socializing? Treat the guests who survive the after-hours and linger a bit longer to prolong the party a bit. Serve them special after-hours bites, whether it is mini ice cream cones, s’mores, or milk and cookies! When everyone thinks the celebration is over, liven it up with late-night goodies that will get guests ready for the after-party. Your guests will adore you for your midnight nibbles, which include ice cream bites, fresh chocolate chip cookies, milk shooters, or a fully stocked taco bar. The extra details will immediately land your special day firmly as your guests’ favorite wedding reception!

Plan games and activities

At your reception, keep your guests, especially the younger ones, amused with the fun and interactive activities. Set up a game of cornhole at your outdoor ceremony, or set up a coloring station at one of your reception tables. You can choose from a variety of wedding games and activities, such as bride and groom trivia, picture scavenger hunts, ring tosses, or good old karaoke! Keeping your wedding guests occupied with wedding activities not only keeps them entertained but also helps to alleviate any nervousness or anxiousness as you transition from the wedding ceremony to the reception.

Have a fun “guest book” to sign

Think beyond the typical guest book, and choose fun instead! You can ask guests to leave a message on a vintage surfboard at your tropical destination wedding, or create a jigsaw puzzle of your photo and let guests sign each piece. You can also have them fill up paper notes filled with advice and wedding tips in wine bottles, which can be opened on your forthcoming anniversaries! You can have a couple of different bottles to be opened in 2 years, 5 years, or 10 years of your wedding anniversaries! Guest book activities are not only fun, but it also lets your guest know that you appreciate their input in your life!

Photo backdrops to remember

A picture speaks in memories and holds the secret of the day for you to treasure. Having the perfect photo booth is a surefire method to catch those candid, silly moments that your photographer might miss. For a summer wedding, use snorkel gear or opera masks and monocles, and for a formal occasion, use opera masks and monocles. This is the perfect way to make a themed wedding truly be remembered as intended. At a bucolic wedding, a vintage Volkswagen photo booth can be the perfect addition, while you can go full flapper girl for a 1920s-inspired wedding! The options are endless, and it’s a fun way for your guest to indulge and have fun!

Wow with lighting

Lighting speaks louder than most of your other wedding decors. Revolutionize your venue with jaw-dropping lighting which will wow your guests. You can go for decadent chandeliers for a touch of eclectic elegance or go modern and sassy with neon light signage! You can have hanging lanterns from a tree that act as the perfect ceremony backdrop or photo backdrop, or you can go full-on romantic with dripping candles lining the stairways as you walk down the stairs! And all things said and done, do not underestimate the brilliance of fairy lights!

Gorgeous installations

Installations that defy gravity or stand out looking all dramatic are something that will have your guest’s attention as soon as they walk in! Whether it is a quaint art installation or a floral installation, there is plenty you can do here! Lush installations, and more specifically floral installations, are a current trend. You can incorporate this trend into your wedding decor in a variety of ways to achieve a chic look, whether it’s with a stunning and jaw-dropping wedding backdrop, edgy and dramatic overhead installations, a modern wedding seating chart with moss, greenery, and candles, or a jaw-dropping art installation that cascades down the stairs looking like a piece of art!

Display towering tiers

It’s either go big or go home! With a vast guest list, you have the perfect excuse to go all out with your cake. Consult your cake baker about constructing a multi-tiered work of art that will wow your guests. For a beautiful wedding, a multi-tiered elegant wedding cake will command all of the attention. When it comes to towering layers, you can go for tall chocolate fountains, champagne towers, or even just your table centerpieces! It will quickly give your big day an opulent feel!

Set up an awesome satellite bar

Offer your guests a celebratory surprise with a cigar rolling station during cocktail hour. If cigars aren’t your thing, any creative, personal satellite bar idea works too, like a make-your-own prosecco drink station or a tequila tasting bar. This is not only a fun activity that your guest can partake in, but it also makes your wedding reception that much extra special!

Unique reception performers

Entertain your wedding guests with style, whether it is with live painters, fire breathers in the evening, an aerialist performer to perform a full in-the-air dance routine, or casually floating above loved ones to give your guest a wow-factor experience! While there is a DJ or a band at every wedding, having a wedding reception performance that is unique and wow-inducing can leave the impression of your wedding in your guests’ minds forever! You can also have unique traditional dance routines performed by professionals or drink servers which will light up the cocktail hour significantly!

Extraordinary wedding favor

Let your wedding guests leave with more than just memories from the day! When you hand out your wedding favors, consider going that extra mile. Whether it is a cocktail kit for a drink after the ride home or a polaroid that captures the guest’s experience perfectly, whether it is a personalized wine glass or the satisfaction of going back knowing that a tree will be planted in the guest’s name, wedding favors which lingers on for that extra time truly makes your wedding day memorable! While things that induce great memories forever are much appreciated, you can also go for wedding favors that are plain old fun, like a mini champagne bottle with a personalized label!

Light up the stars

How about a Tangled-inspired paper lantern ceremony for you and your guests to enjoy? You can do this after the reception is almost over and before you set off towards your happily-ever-after. You and your sweetheart can first light the paper lanterns together and set them off in the night sky, and your wedding guests can follow suit. The whole sky will light up most gloriously, and it will surely leave your guest enchanted! It also sets the scene for some lovely photo opportunities!

Going that extra mile for your guest is worth the effort when you see the look in their eyes which is filled with awe and wonder as if they have just walked into a carnival! They will still be talking about your amazing reception party a month from now, and slowly those awe-struck memories will transform into warm and fuzzy feel-good vibes which will forever be attached to your special day! Isn’t that a lovely thought? So go ahead and treat your guests to a wedding experience that they will take home with them and hold close for a long while!

A gorgeous venue gets most of the work done single-handedly, while you can have subtle wine elements with the color choices, witty signs, and usage of wine bottles and corks for various decor elements! Also, we have yet to meet someone who won’t light up like a thousand light bulbs at the mention of wine! Think endless rustic romantic vineyards, gorgeous sunsets, outdoor receptions with bistro lights gleaming overhead, and rustic linens awaiting a feast with friends and family. We have thought of everything from your wine-themed wedding invitations to venues offering exquisite views and authentic vineyard vibes! If you and your partner are looking for a wedding day that is sun-soaked and wine-tinted and heady with the aroma of wine, take notes, because we come bearing ideas!

Vineyard venue

What can be more romantic than a vineyard wedding? Not much, that’s for sure! It only makes sense to have your wedding at a vineyard if you eat, sleep, and breathe wine! These types of places usually provide spectacular scenic vistas in addition to an attractive, laid-back atmosphere. If you don’t already have a favorite, look for possibilities at nearby vineyards and vineyard wedding locations. Consider a destination wedding in a wine-producing region such as Napa Valley or Santa Barbara on the West Coast, or Charlottesville, Virginia on the East Coast, for the ultimate vineyard experience.

Pair the Food With the Wine

Let your guest experience a fully exquisite wine and food pairing luxury! Determine the wines you’ll serve based on your menu with the help of your caterers and bartenders. Include a remark about wine pairings on your menu cards or placards. If guests have pre-selected their entrée, put down the name and wine choices next to each meal description; however, if you are hosting a family-style meal, list the suggestions that pair best with the caterers’ offerings. This will make your guest feel like they are part of an exclusive club!

Wine-inspired florals

For your florals and overall color palette, draw inspiration from the burgundies, mauves, and deep reds prevalent throughout the features of your vineyard location, not to mention the wine itself. The greens and browns of vineyards would look great with dark blossoms and décor. The juxtaposition between the exquisite blooms and the rustic use of a barrel is one of our favorites! When choosing the perfect flowers for your wine-themed wedding, consider all varied shades of purple, maroon, and deep reds, like Dahlia, orchids, daylilies, iris, oxalis, and grasses. These can be paired with fresh foliage for the perfect balance!

Support local vendors

While Napa Valley may come to mind when thinking of a vineyard wedding, amazing wines can be found all over the world! Finding nearby vineyards, depending on your region, might make travel easier for your guests and give your wedding a more local feel. Examine your choices carefully and go for a vendor who is not only worthy but is also able to offer you a wide variety of options to make your experience memorable! This way, you’ll not only be supporting local businesses, but you’ll also be able to sample some delectable, one-of-a-kind flavors!

Wine barrel details

Incorporating wine barrels into your ceremony venue or cocktail hour is a subtle way to integrate the feeling of a winery into your décor. They can be used as tables or as a platform for floral arrangements. The blossoms and the rustic barrel will be a fantastic match for each other. Wine barrels can also be used in a variety of other ways! Instead of a standard guest book, have guests sign a wine barrel head, which you can keep forever!

Let your backdrop speak

If you’re being married in front of grapevines, you won’t need a lot of flowers. Allow the natural beauty of the location to speak for itself by opting for a minimum display of décor. One of the best things about being married at a vineyard is being able to take advantage of the beautiful scenery. This is especially true for photography. Rolling hills, rich greenery, and plenty of natural light combine to create a stunning set of wedding photos.

Personalized labels

We can’t think of a more adorable way to invite your wine-loving friends to your wedding. You’ll get an instant yes if you surprise your bridesmaids-to-be with their favorite bottle of wine with bespoke labels. A bottle of wine from the vineyard with personalized labeling can prove to be the perfect wedding favor if you want to send your guests home with a piece of your wedding memory. If you want to take your personalization even further, go for a custom crest that can be used in all of your wedding stationery!

Cork details

What better way to bring in the wine theme than with corks? Whether it is “Bar” signage made up of wine corks, or it is the cork cardholders, using wine cork for wedding details is a smart way to bring the wine theme to the wedding decorations. We also love the idea of using cork in unexpected ways, whether it is as a save-the-date fridge magnet or cork coasters!

Clear out bar issues

Keep in mind that many wineries restrict the types of bars you can visit. Some wineries only serve their wines, obviating the possibility of serving other sorts of alcoholic beverages. If margaritas or liquor were on your must-have list, double-check before signing the dotted line. You can also host a wine-tasting session for your guests, but if you wish to serve other beverages, you should do so after having a word with your winery or vineyard.

Wine details in wedding cards

The wedding theme starts way before the actual wedding, and the wedding invitation is a good way to announce the theme. How about a wedding invitation with wine splashes or a ring of a wine bottle? You can also go for fun grape watercolor illustrations or rustic details to bring the vineyard rustic vibes to the table. You can also announce your theme with wine corks with the wedding date inscribed in them! With a theme like this, there are many ways you can go!

Wedding favors

The most common way to go about it is to offer your guest mini wine bottles with your personalized labels, but that is not all that you can do! You can go for fun personalized wine glasses, or heart-shaped bottle stoppers if your guests are wine enthusiasts as you are! You can also gift wine-scented candles or luxury grape juice bottles to your non-drinker guests! Either way, the options are endless!

Wedding signage

If a wedding is not a place for quirky puns as signage, what is? Do you and your significant other have similar wine preferences? With humorous wedding signage, you may show off your favorite way with words. You can go for something fun and quirky like “Pour the wine, his last name is mine” or “You’re the cabernet to my sauvignon.” If you are looking for some wine puns, the internet will surely not disappoint you! Talking of signs and saying, why use basic napkins when pink ones with beautiful sayings are available? The fun “yeah way rosé” napkins will have your guests ‘gramming them all night long.

Keepsakes

If you are getting married in a vineyard very close to your heart and serving your exquisite wines to your guest, it can be a great idea to have the bottle for you and your sweetheart to keep and cherish later! You can have your guest sign the label for you, and you can pop that cork open on your 1st anniversary or even your 5th one! This can be a fun way to commemorate the day while making it a memory you can relive years later! After all, they don’t say wine gets better with age for nothing!

Wedding cake and desserts

A sweet table is one of the sweetest and the most anticipated parts of the wedding day, so a wine-themed wedding should include the same. Whether you chose to have wine-soaked berries infused in your wedding cake’s flavoring choices or your wine theme is depicted visually with succulent grapes and berries cascading down a simple rustic cake, the options are endless! You can also bring the wine element with the colors used in the icing, going for ombre brushstroke icing, or subtle grapevine details for a more cottagecore take on the wedding confection. While the cake has been spoken for, you can’t ignore the rest of the dessert table. Infuse some fun with some wine sugar cookies or wine-flavored macaroons for a more Parisian take on the desserts!

Guest book bottle

How do you take the memories of your stunning wedding with you forever? The easier way is with a guest book! Whether it is with a barrel lid with messages from your loved ones, or with a wine bottle signed by your guests, this is somewhere where you can get creative. Another charming and romantic way is to go the “message in the bottle” route and have your guests leave advice, wishes, or snippets of wisdom in empty wine bottles which can be opened in your forthcoming wedding anniversaries. You can set up empty bottles and number them to indicate which anniversary it is intended to be opened, and leave paper and pen for your guests to jot down sweet nothings! This is a gorgeous way to not only make your guests feel their thoughts and wishes are welcome, but it also makes for a sweet keepsake.

Wine color attires

Wedding attires are one of the most fun ways to bring in the wine theme to your special day! Wine is a deep crimson color that is perfect for a sophisticated and romantic wedding. This lovely burgundy color complements all skin tones and looks great on everyone. If you’re looking for beautiful wine bridesmaid dresses, take a look at some of the year’s most popular wine wedding color schemes. The color wine can be found online under the name ‘Bordeaux.’ Creating a coherent lineup is simple with designs and sizes to suit everyone in your wedding party. Alternatively, you can go for something more neutral like blush pink or champagne with the bridesmaid dresses while the groomsmen wear oxblood suits! This combination is especially gorgeous for an autumn wedding, but is classic enough to work around the year!

 

Nothing says “fun wedding” quite like a wine-themed wedding day! With the promise of wide-open vineyards, luscious grapes, wine tasting, and lovely photo opportunities by the cartload, a wine-themed wedding is just as fun as it sounds! Whether your love of wine comes from enjoying a glass of ruby red liquid after a productive day, or it comes from the way the wine theme is so close to nature and brings all the rustic countryside elements with it, you can’t go wrong with a wine-themed wedding! While we tried to cover all aspects of the wedding to fit the theme, the theme is such that it is incredibly flexible for you to include far more than what is mentioned. Just have fun with it, and be creative for a fun wedding in high spirits!
