Six Reasons to Have a Vineyard Wedding
There are an astounding number of wedding venues from which to choose and it can sometimes be difficult to make a decision. More and more couples are discovering vineyards are idyllic places to tie the knot. Canada is home to numerous world-class wineries that are perfect places to get married.
While some of your guests may have visited a vineyard, there is a good chance that few, if any, have attended a wedding at one. People may go out of their way to make themselves available to experience something new. Many vineyards are also situated in more secluded areas which can add to the intimacy of the occasion.
Few locations have as much natural beauty as vineyards and your wedding pictures can be the envy of friends. Fall brings beautifully colored foliage and plump grapes on the vines. In spring and summer, there is often a profusion of lovely blooming flowers, green meadows, and earthly scents. The bounty of flowers, leaves, and vines makes it easy to create romantic, elegant decorations and bouquets for the wedding party.
The wine is guaranteed to be spectacular when you have a vineyard wedding. You may also have the opportunity to serve custom labeled wines that are only offered onsite. Bottles from the winery also make delightful thank you gifts for guests.
Wine connoisseurs are often some of the most frequent winery patrons and they are typically accustomed to fine cuisine as well. To accommodate the discriminating palates of customers, many vineyards have excellent onsite dining options. Even if they don’t, there is bound to be a fine restaurant nearby that caters weddings.
Many couples choose vineyards because they provide a more rustic atmosphere. More understated attire fits right in and increases the apparel options for the wedding party and guests. The bride may opt for a bohemian wedding dress, and suits rather than tuxedos are very appropriate. The background can also help set the scene for creative wedding pictures.
Indoor and Outdoor Options
Numerous wineries have indoor and outdoor venues. Couples may choose to marry outside and have their receptions indoors. An outdoor pre-reception cocktail party is another alternative. This set-up is also highly beneficial in the event of inclement weather.
