Choose the Setting
It’s best to consider the bride-to-be as well as the group in general when choosing a setting. Are they casual homebodies, or is every Saturday night spent in the town? The following are a few ideas of possible places for the event.
- Your home (for an evening of pajamas and wine)
- A local wine vineyard
- A restaurant or bar that offers wine tastings
- A paint-and-sip party at a studio
- A rental vacation home
Ensure you consider the bride’s preferences and needs above all else when choosing a setting.
Create an Invitation
The invitation is the best way to let everyone know the theme of the get-together and what they can expect. Your invites can be formal or casual, depending on the vibe you are going for. Here are some things that the invitation needs:
- Time, place, and date
- What everyone can bring
- Gift registry
- What you are serving
- RSVP with the host’s number
The more info you include, the better. After all, you don’t want to juggle a ton of calls and texts with questions!
Pick Wine Glasses
Purchasing drinkware provides a great opportunity to give each person a take-home gift. Personalized wine glasses with the name of the event and date are perfect ways to ensure your guests never forget the wonderful time they had making memories together.
Consider Food and Water
Whether you are doing a professionally-run wine tasting or kicking back at home, make sure everyone always has water nearby and that there are plenty of snacks to grab. Empty stomachs and an evening of wine can lead to a bride and wedding party with pounding headaches.
If you are the one preparing the event, create a menu that pairs well with wine. Charcuterie is always a fun option because everyone can nibble on finger foods as they socialize. Consider some foods that pair well with wine:
- Soft and hard cheeses
- Veggies and dip
- Bread and butter
- Dried fruit
- Italian meats such as salami
Don’t be shy about asking friends to pitch in by bringing something to share. If you’ve chosen a restaurant, speak with the planner there to make sure they offer foods that match the event.
