Planning a Posh Winery Wedding

A friend of the family contacted me this morning asking what I thought made a stylish winery wedding. After doing a little research, I’ve decided that the best winery weddings have a few things in common:

  1. They embrace the rustic appeal of the environment in a charming way.
  2. A soft glow gives the entire celebration a subtle, golden look.
  3. They never take the theme too literally.

Rustic weddings are often the most romantic. From cobblestones to earthy moss, bare branches and rich, dark wood, everything about a rustic wedding can invigorate the senses and make your guests feel like they are on a weekend getaway—even if they are only a few miles from home.

Part of creating this magical ambiance involves choosing the perfect lighting. Since a lot of wineries are dark and stacked high with old oak barrels, tea lights are a natural choice for brightening up the space and taking advantage of the rows and barrels. Hundreds of tea lights artfully arranged can make your guests feel like they are in a truly enchanted space. You can even opt for electric tea lights if you are concerned about fire hazards!

Finally, don’t feel tethered to a wine theme. Hosting the event at a winery makes certain design elements a natural choice, but this elegant Provincial Poetry wedding invitation is just as stylish, sophisticated and elegantly suited  for a winery wedding as this Wine Country wedding invitation. Allow yourself to be creative!
