Couples Wine Tasting Bridal Shower
Couples bridal showers are becoming more common lately, and we think a Couples Wine Tasting Bridal Shower is a perfect way to get the groom involved in the festivities! Choose from a wide variety of bridal shower favors and plates and napkins in vineyard themes, like these vintage design plates, to help set the mood for an elegant bridal shower celebration. If you’re stuck on wording for couples bridal shower invitations, take some inspiration from these designs and keep the message simple. Your couples wine tasting bridal shower can be held at the special couples’ favorite winery or a local wine bar or cafe or at someone’s home.
Personalized glasses for each of the guests are not not only functional but make a nice take-home bridal shower favor. Choose a traditional stemmed glass and add these “charming” vineyard wine glass charms for a special touch. These cute personalized stemless wine glasses are available in a variety of designs. Be sure to have a few extras on hand just in case!
We really love the idea of an outdoor wine tasting bridal shower. Simple decorations like white mini lights strung through the trees can really make your party shine. Add these clever wine cork candles to old bottles for an added glow.
Typically you’ll want to select a variety of wine, usually three reds, three whites and a dessert wine to finish the evening. Local wine shops will often help you plan your party and will sometimes send a ‘Sommelier’ (professional wine taster) to conduct the tastings. Or get your guests involved and have them each bring one or two bottles of their favorites to share. Remember to provide beer and non-alcoholic beverages as well. Add a fun couples bridal shower game by having brown bags on hand for “blind taste testing”. You’ll be surprised at what your friends know (and don’t know!).
Cheese and fruit are natural pairings with wine. Ask for help from your local cheese shop, and choose a variety of hard and soft cheeses. And remember, a cheese board, wine bottle holder or this unique Monogrammed Vintage Wine Stopper all make great bridal shower gifts!
Don’t Forget the Party Favors!
Shower guests will enjoy these themed shower favors. Who wouldn’t love a unique bottle stopper like this Asian themed Double Happiness Chrome Bottle Stopper ? Here’s a perfect favor for a wine tasting affair, the Wine Glass Favor kit. You can also buy a bottle for each couple and personalize the label. It’s a wedding shower gift the happy couple will always remember.
Tip: Keep fresh pitchers of water handy for guests to rinse out their glass between tastings.
