Why not combine your love of wine, good food and beautiful scenery into your special day? There are swoon-worthy wineries across North America to tie the knot at surrounded by the romantic aroma of fermenting wine. The natural beauty does the work for you, so you can focus on your dress, bridesmaids and the food. A vineyard wedding sets you up for a romantic, outdoor ceremony, that can be flexible to your needs. Plus, you can guarantee your guests will enjoy their wine.
Vineyard Inspired Decor
A vineyard can be dressed up for a more formal occasion or embracing the country-side for a more rustic vibe. The grapevine’s charm is classic, chic and oh so lovely. The colour palate is natural, with the scenic green, brown oakwood barrels, red cabernet and off-white neutrals. The key is using the surrounding beauty to pull the theme together.
For decor, you don’t have to look too far. Wine crates filled with flowers arranged on the ground, wine bottles as table numbers, and corks as place holders.
If the weather is a concern and you don’t want to risk it for the ceremony, the winery itself can be transformed into a gorgeous, twinkling light stage for the ceremony. It won’t take away from the elegance and you can still include nature’s charm by bringing in the more rustic pieces of wood, flowers and greenery.
The dinner and reception can take place within the winery as well. Again, the decor can stay simple yet elegant by playing up the natural, rustic character of the space and reflecting it in the table settings and details. Leave the wooden tables bare, using a lace table runner to add delicate details while also keeping the minimalistic feel. Wooden table centres, light coloured flowers and candles are enough to bring life to the tables without taking away from the rest of the space.
Vineyard Inspired Dress
Vineyard brides usually go for a romantic, vintage-inspired look when choosing their dress. Think lace, keyhole backs, low cuts, and ruffles. Additionally, stick to pastel and light colours to compliment the warm tones of the scenery.
The sweeping rows of grapes and solid oak trees make for the perfect photo backdrop, emphasizing the elegance of the dress and bride herself. These two gorgeous Essense of Australia dresses from the Bridal Boutique bring together the keyhole back and delicate lace in two different ways.
