Wine Bottles at a WeddingWine and the Perfect Wedding

Wine possesses that transcendent quality of crossing religious, cultural, socio-economic and political barriers. What does this mean for your planned special event? Simply put, wine appeals to more people, rather than fewer people, and is therefore a perfect beverage to consider for most functions.

Wedding Oriented Events Involving Wine: Bachelor or bachelorette party ideas; bridal shower game ideas; bridal shower planning; unique centerpieces; choosing a caterer; choosing your romantic honeymoon; choosing a wedding location; creative ways to propose; dealing with cold feet; destination wedding ideas; duties of best man; hosting a home wedding; multi-cultural weddings; non-denominational or mixed religion weddings; out of town guests; planning outdoor weddings; planning your rehearsal dinner; planning theme weddings; second marriage considerations; toast ideas for best man; and creative gift ideas for the bride, groom, bridesmaids or groomsmen.

With all of these possibilities confronting you, it makes sense that you would want to have someone knowledgeable about wine assisting you with your event. You might want to consider hiring a sommelier (a person who has extensive knowledge about wine and food pairings). Sommeliers are wine experts and wine educators. A sommelier will help you create a wine budget, determine the quantity of wine needed for the number of attending guests, as well as help you select the wines that will be best suited to the meal being served. More than that, a sommelier will know where to find those rare and fine vintage wines, how to best store them, and when they should be served. The wines you serve at your special event will create an impression of appropriate sophistication, impress your guests, and take your special event to a whole new level.
