Complete Article:  Weddings & Wine: The Marriage Made in Heaven 

by Stacy Brazington, Independent Wine Consultant, www.FineWinesAtHome.com

When it comes to weddings, uncork your imagination and pour sheer romance for the bride and groom, and for their guests. Whether it is your own wedding, or the wedding of friends, the clink of sparkling stems raised in a toast, is a time-honored tradition that will linger in the memory for years to come. But which wines to serve? How much to buy? When it comes to wine at weddings there can be questions galore. To take some of the confusion out, here are some general guidelines and ideas that can help to pull the cork in style:

1.  Keep it Simple
Keep it simple and stay with what people know and love best – a favorite white wine and a favorite red. Keep them both food-friendly, and you’re good to go.

2. Pick a Bubbly
No wedding is complete without a bubbly. Be sure to order enough to have at least one toast for the reception. Sparklers from Spain are one of the hottest new bubbly trends. If you are concerned about price, here’s a hot tip: ask the servers to pour only a half a glass – the perfect bubbles will rise up in the glass for a fragrant toast! Another money saver is a bubbly punch…. Simply add sparkling soda and fruit slices to your favorite wine. Delicious!

3. Enjoy Choosing
Consider throwing a Wine Tasting Event. That’s right! Host a Wine Tasting party and invite the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Or have your own family and friends tasting celebration.

4. A Generous Pour
When it comes to wines for weddings, you don’t want to run out. A bottle will pour four to six glasses. You will want to allow for half a bottle per person. Some will drink more, some less. But since you can't determine ahead of time which wine they'll drink – white, red or bubbly – you want to be sure you have enough of each on hand

5. Think by the Case
When it comes to purchasing wine for wedding receptions, buying bulk by the case makes sense. Either all red, all white, or mixed cases. Remember, there is no way that leftover wine is going to waste! Start a wine cellar in your new home, and don’t forget to save some wine for your anniversary party next year, the year after that…..and after that.

6. Think Personal
Did you know that you can have all your wine bottles' labels personalized? There’s nothing quite like commemorating the big day with your own personal message of love, your wedding date, and a photograph. Contact your Wine Consultant to find out how easy it is to personalize wine bottles as gifts for the entire wedding party. Personalized gifts are always excellent to give to the bridal couple as well.

7. Think Double Magnums
A double magnum makes a handsome gift for the bridal
couple and also makes a sensational statement at a bachelor
or bachelorette party, or as a center piece at the reception.
it for added impact. They'll never forget it –
