Why are Vineyard Weddings Popular?
Vineyard weddings have become increasingly popular for their enchanting ambiance and fantastic wine, of course! They provide stunning scenery for your ceremony, reception and photo opportunities. Vineyard wedding venues are also popular because they allow the option of a destination or local wedding, depending on where you live.
Vineyards can provide diverse possibilities regarding what kind of wedding you would like to host. You can have an intimate outdoor wedding among the vines, a big event in a sprawling tent or a casual evening under the stars.
What is the Best Time of Year for a Vineyard Wedding?
Before you lock in a date to say “I do” at a vineyard, consider the location and season. This is especially if it will be hosting an outdoor wedding. Typically, fall, spring and summer are the best times of the year.

How Does the Vineyard Setting Influence the Choice of Wedding Dresses?
When choosing a vineyard wedding dress, it’s all about being able to move comfortably and working with the outdoor setting. A big, poofy ballgown may not be the best choice, but an A-line with nature-inspired elements or a minimalist sheath dress could be ideal!
When it comes to sleeve lengths and fabrics, keep in mind the season you are getting married. You can explore more dreamy outdoor wedding dresses here.
What Wedding Dress Details Complement Vineyard Scenery?
Vineyard weddings are all about the beauty of nature, so it is a good idea to look for gowns that include nature-inspired elements. Think vine and leaf lace wedding dresses or floral wedding dresses with 3D flowers to bring an organic element to your wedding day look!
A gown that features color or painted flowers is also a beautiful choice for the bride who wants a whimsical vibe. Shades of blush and off-white are also stunning and more natural than pure white.
