Everthing’s Fine With Wine


Wine has a rich tradition in almost all cultures.  In the ancient world, many people looked at wine as a symbol the signified that end a barbarianism and the indoctrination of class in society.  In Medieval Europe, many people tied wine consumption to the Church and thought of wine as a sacred object that connected them to a higher purpose.  In the Islamic world, wine was thought of as a way to treat health problems.  Many herbs, spices, minerals, and even gemstones would be introduced to the wine to treat ailments.  It’s easy to see why wine is still held in high regards even today.
Wine, with its robust history, is the perfect dinner complement to a wedding ceremony.  But with the many varieties and classifications, you have to ask yourself, “which wine best suits my wedding?”
There are many factors that go into wine selection and you must take into account everything from the menu, the atmosphere, and the season in order to choose the right wine.

  • Dinner – When choosing a wine for your guests, you should stick to the traditional way of pairing wine with what type of dinner that’s being served.  If your serving red meat, darker wines with a more full body are a good pairing to bring out the taste of the meat, rather than cover it up with a sweeter taste.  The same could be said for poultry or pork being paired with a mid-rage wine and fish being paired with a white wine.  But be careful, sometimes there are exceptions to the rules, like your guests personal tastes or the way the dinner is prepared.  So do your research by taking into account your guests tastes and refer to this nifty Wine Pairing Chart that helps select the best wine to accompany your dinner choice(s).
  • The Toast – In every wedding there is a toast to the happy couple’s future.  There isn’t a better way to do that than with Champagne served in a flute glasses.  This is a classy way for your dinner party to tell funny stories about the happy couple and wish them the best of luck in their future.

And at the end of the wedding, be sure to send your guests off with a Wine Wedding Favors that will remind them of the delicious wine you selected for the occasion.

Relax, Breathe, and Smile

In all my years of wedding experience, I’ve seen tons of extremely stressed out brides. Let’s take the case of one stressed out bride who we’ll call Monica, her husband Tom, and mother-in-law Marilyn. Marilyn had been dreaming of her son’s wedding for years, and she was delighted when Tom proposed to Monica.

And then came the wedding planning.

Marilyn wasn’t a monster-in-law, but her tendency to sometimes help just a little bit too much was getting under Monica’s skin. Monica was stressed out with wedding planning and her demanding job, and that stress was making her snap at Tom and Marilyn, her skin go hay-wire, and way too many tears for such a happy upcoming event.

The solution? We got Monica quickly into Wedding Retreat, stat! We took her for a hot stone massage, got her a pedicure (so relaxing! never underestimate the value of a good pedicure), facial, and a haircut. Sure, it wasn’t cheap, but after seeing Monica relax as much as she did, we would have done it 5 times over.

So, brides-to-be, what can you learn from this? Relax! Take a breath, and smile at all the loved ones around you who just want to help, and the beautiful life you have. And then schedule yourself a massage, and get these for your personal use, and as a great gift for your always helpful bridesmaids, too:
