Many couples dream of tying the knot in the verdant wine country of Tuscany or Napa Valley. In truth, though, that often stays just a dream. So what’s the next best thing? Why, having a romantic wine country-inspired wedding! Bring the lush vineyard look and feel to your wedding reception via chic rustic touches and vintage accents. Then, add wine-inspired hues like purple, burgundy and rosé set against neutrals like classic ivory, woodsy browns, and fresh greens.
Mood Board for a Romantic Vineyard Wedding
1 – First, set the scene for your wine-themed wedding. Lucky you if you find a venue with a gorgeous view like this one! This idyllic setting is from a fabulous three-day tour of the vineyards and wineries of Sonoma County featured by wedding blogger and DJ Carl Mindling on his site Reach Carl. Try to book an actual vineyard or winery, or perhaps a country inn overlooking fields of grape orchards.
2 – Invitations in a wine bottle? What a perfect idea! This lovely example offered by My Personal Artist gives you the option to have your invitations handpainted by artist Michelle Mospens, enclose them in green wine bottles, then post them to guests in their own wooden wine crates. How cool is that? And great inspiration for a DIY wine-themed invitation, too, don’t you think?
3 – Of course, your wedding dress should be in theme, too. We found this sweet, feminine piece by Priscilla of Boston via the Dog N’ Bird tumblr site. It’s actually from the Vineyard Collection and features the perfect knee length for an outdoor wine orchard ceremony!
4 – Your table centerpieces offer another chance to use pretty wine colors. This charming arrangement from Florists’ Review Magazine combines garden roses, pink and purple Salvia, fresh mint and sage displayed in a rustic wooden crate. Must smell heavenly, too!
5 – Bring the hues of fine wine to your table setting. Here, in this fabulous styled shoot by Alchemy Fine Events at a luxury villa in Sienna, Italy, the ombre palette features lovely purples to lilacs. The elegant gold-rimmed plate ware is paired with cut glass goblets, all set against a rustic wooden table. See the gorgeous details of this entire shoot by photographer Mike Larson in the full series by Alchemy.
6 – What a fitting backdrop for your wedding cake and dessert table! Real oak barrels in an actual winery like this one, Lafond Winery and Vineyards featured on the blog of botanical florist, Lauryl Lane. This themed sweets display includes mini cupcakes in different wine flavors, potted herbs, lavender blooms, wine corks and purple and lilac confetti!
7 – Jute wine bags would make wonderful themed favors. These ones available from the etsy shop Wisteria (found via Wedding Style Anarchy) sport different styles of crowns. Cute! A practical gift guests are sure to appreciate since they can use these as wine serving accessories at their own upcoming occasions.
