a wine tasting bridal shower

a wine tasting bridal shower

wine bridal shower wine tasting To celebrate a girlfriend's 1) upcoming wedding at a winery 2) love of wine, we held a wine-themed/wine tasting bridal shower.

The centerpiece of the shower was the wine tasting table. Each bridesmaid presented her choice of wine with an explanation of the taste and pairings. The cards were held up by corks that had one side cut off to make them flat (which was a real pain in the butt to do). The super cute "Wine Tasting" banner came from Expressions in Design on etsy.

For the bride's gift, we bridesmaids gifted her with a wine fridge and each gave her a bottle of "our" wine to be opened on special occasions: first house, first baby, first dinner party, first fight, etc.

Instead of cake, we went with cake balls laid out in a bunch of grapes formation.

Guests wrote wishes or advice on slips of paper and put them in the bottle, to be opened on an anniversary (that's one of their wedding invitations wrapped around the bottle!).

The wine tasting was a great ice breaker and the bride loved it!
