Last month The Hook, one of the local papers in Charlottesville, published their summer wedding edition. I love reading this edition of the paper as it always includes so many great new wedding and event ideas that are relevant to the area. This edition had a great spreadsheet (?) that covered all the basic aspects of a wedding based on the type of theme you were looking to create. As soon as I found this article I could not wait to share it with you! So over the next few weeks I will feature one of the wedding themes with you. This week, the vineyard wedding.

Hosting a wedding at a vineyard is easy to coordinate living in the Charlottesville area. Virginia is a great area for growing and making wine and is home to over 225 wineries. A great aspect of hosting a wedding at a vineyard is that you are sure to have amazing scenery, an indoor and outdoor venue option and of course some great tasting wine! Once you find that perfect winery to host your day here is everything else you can check out that will be sure to make your vineyard wedding a night to remember.

The Dress
When it comes to choosing the dress you will want to look for something with a romantic feel. A dress that features elegant details and lace works perfect for this setting.

The Groom
For this type of wedding nothing will look better than a perfectly tailored suit. A classic black suit will complement your dress and look amazing with a vineyard backdrop.
The Accessories
Your maids and you will look great all evening with a stunning clutch holding your lipstick and phone. For the creative bride you could even make your own like my friend Emily did.

The Bouquet
All pastel colored flowers look amazing for a vineyard wedding. When choosing your flowers try to stick with one color and then use whites or grays as accents to create the perfect wedding day bouquet like this pink one here.
The Paper
You will not want to pass up the opportunity of taking some great wedding day pictures in the vineyard. Accessorize your pictures with cute paper signs that say "thank you" or "just married." Check out my Wedding Thank You Signs post for more great ideas!

The Band
A live band is perfect for a vineyard wedding. Whether you choose a country bluegrass band or a jazz group live music adds the perfect touch!

The Standout Detail
And for the perfect standout detail at a vineyard wedding? A late night snack brought to you by a local food truck, like Carpe Donut in Charlottesville! You can usher all your guests outside for a quick change of scenery and let them enjoy a yummy snack.
