Wine and Cheese Parties

Weddings offer many opportunities to host one of today’s most popular styles celebrations: the wine and cheese party.

There is nothing more sophisticated and classic than pairing wine and cheese in a festive atmosphere. You can theme your bridal shower or bridesmaid luncheon as a tasting, or incorporate it as one of the wedding weekend events. Wine and cheese parties are perfect for vineyard-themed weddings as well as vintage-style get-togethers.

To start, select wines that are meaningful to you as a couple. You might choose “his and hers” favorites, or order from a favorite wine country vacation spot that the two of you enjoy. If you are hosting a destination wedding or many of your guests are traveling in from out of town, pick regional wines and introduce your family and friends to the area in a unique way. Many localities are associated with a certain type of specialty cheese, so make sure to incorporate the most fitting varieties as well.

Your wine and cheese party can be an educational event as well as an entertaining afternoon or evening. Assign someone the role of acting as a wine “guide” or sommelier-of-the-day as guests try new varieties. You might even offer each one some helpful tips about how to enjoy the wine, what to pair it with, and where to find more when you introduce them to their new wine crush!

Customize your experience with personalized wine glasses, and themed wine bottle stoppers. Numerous styles of both are available. Traditional and stem-less glasses come in different color flirty polka dots, or refined etched monogram styles. Wine stoppers range from big crystal diamonds to a romantic open heart. Both are useful and decorative during your party, and make great take-home gifts for your bridal party and friends. You can event create a wine and cheese party gift set for your attendants and include a themed set of cheese spreaders.

Advantage Bridal has everything you need to turn your wedding celebration into a wine and cheese soiree.
