The Vineyard Wedding: Tips for Winery Weddings

winery weddings outdoor ceremony at Calloway Winery

Thinking of a vineyard wedding? You’re in good company. Vineyard weddings are becoming increasingly popular with couples who want an outdoor wedding.

It’s no wonder that winery weddings have become so popular. Wineries offer an idyllic setting to say “I do.” If you are considering a vineyard wedding, here are some tips to consider:

  • If you are having a weekend vineyard wedding, arrange for a wine tasting for your wedding guests a day before the wedding.
  • If guests are coming in from out of town and staying at a hotel, consider having a bus chartered to escort guests to and from the winery. That way drinking and driving won’t be an issue.
  • If the wedding is outdoors, find out if there is a sheltered area in case of inclement weather.
  • Find out if the winery supplies linens, tables, chairs, tableware and glassware.
  • If you want entertainment, find out if the vineyard allows music or live entertainment. Is there a dance floor?
  • Make sure there is ample parking for your guests.
  • Consider a wine-themed wedding, but don’t feel compelled to have a theme.
  • Consider a wine pairing feast.
  • Offer mini-bottles of wine from the vineyard as favors.

    Yes, I like Calloway as a wedding spot, but there are many others that also deserve mention like Falkner Winery, Wiens Cellars Winery, South Coast Winery, Ponte Winery and many others.

    I have visited Callaway many time to my visits to Temecula Ca. I have been in search of a wedding site here in Temecula for some time and I have finally found one. I love the sunset view from the top of Falkner Winery in Temecula Ca. It is breath taking in many ways. If you ever get a chance to visit this winery ask for Loretta Falkner, she is the best! Look at some of the views on the 2 sites that they have to offer, I chose the Garden!
