There are several alternatives to the traditional wedding gift list emerging, and a wine gift registry is one of them. For wine enthusiasts it’s the perfect excuse to put together a list of your favourite wines with a specialist supplier, and then have your guests order them by the bottle or case, depending on their budget. Here are some of the benefits of a wedding wine gift registry.
Imagine a wine tasting session where you can request for your favourite vintages as presents. That’s just what you’ll get with a wine gift registry! When you create a wedding wine list you can typically have a tasting session with your supplier, which will allow you to discover the kinds of wines that you really love, and to understand more about those wines.
Wine is great for cosy, romantic nights in or for entertaining friends and family, so as long as you’re a wine lover your presents will get thoroughly enjoyed. Many couples have lived together before they get hitched, so they already have two of everything and don’t require more household items, so stocking their wine cellar is a perfect alternative.
The majority of wine gift registry suppliers include a personal message from the giver with each bottle or case, so every time you open your wedding wine you will get a great reminder of your special day. Unless you drink a vast amount of wine, the collection you create with your gift list should last you for a long time so you’ll be able to relive the big day over and over again.
As well as actual bottles of wine, you can include related accessories on your list. These might include the right stemware, wine decanters, stoppers, or thermometers. Your supplier will be able to recommend accessories that are appropriate to the particular wines you have picked.
If you are registering for wedding wine you can always add a few exclusive wines for guests with a larger budget. Even if they only order one bottle, you will get the chance to taste a superb wine you wouldn’t typically be able to afford. Buying expensive wine for yourself can feel like an unneeded extravagance, but adding it to your wine gift registry is fine.
Given that wine will be one of the most costly items in your reception budget a discount on your wedding wine is well worth having. Quite a few wedding wine gift list suppliers offer a notable discount on the wine for your special day if you order it from them at the same time as setting up your list.
Many couples find that they have to live for less once they return from honeymoon, especially if they are paying off debts that were created by the wedding. Those nights in will be far more appealing if they have the luxury of a big wine collection.
