The Perfect Pour For Your Wedding: Tips on How to Choose Wine for the Big Day
Updated: Aug 30
Your wedding night is the biggest night of your life. Finding your soul mate—the one person in this world who you’d like to spend your life with—is simply magical.
This is why the celebration for this beautiful union should be nothing less than perfect, including the wine you choose to serve on this joyous occasion!
After all, it’s going to be the talk of the evening—besides what people have to say about the couple, of course!
The good news is that we know all about wines and can help you choose the perfect pour! So let’s get right into what factors you need to consider when picking your wine:
Don’t Think Too Much About the Season
There’s a common misconception that red wines are synonymous with winter whereas white wines scream summer or spring. Our experts, however, would beg to differ. They believe that the season and time of the year don’t matter as long the wine goes with the overall menu.
People want to have the wine they want, when they want it. That’s why rosé has been trending all year long! It’s the perfect in-between of red and white wine—the very trait that people enjoy most!
The Menu Is a Crucial Consideration
You don’t need a professional chef to help you choose a wine that complements your menu.
As a rule of thumb, a wine with a similar taste to the food you’re serving is likely to go well with the menu.
With chicken, we’d say red or white doesn’t matter, but make sure it’s on the lighter side.
With seafood, however, you might want to go for an exquisite Greek wine or perhaps a lighter white.
Reds like Pinot Noir and Grenache are excellent for beef, and with pork, a bold white wine like white Burgundy would be perfect!
A wine that’s well thought out and complements the food will never disappoint guests!
Keep it Simple
Many couples make the mistake of serving a rather complicated combination of wines. We think it’s best to keep it simple—one red, one white, and a sparkling wine are the perfect combination.
This way, you’re catering to everyone in one way or another, and get to offer a combination of both light and strong. You could go for a lighter white like Pinot Grigio, for example and a crisper red like Pinot Noir. This combination will go with all kinds of foods! Finally, consider mild champagne to add a bubbly touch!
