When talking about wines, most of us cannot help but connect it with a romantic encounter. Wine has almost always been synonymous with love, passion and luxury. Wines, like solid marriages and love, improve with age. Possibly that's one of the reasons wine is so traditional at weddings.

When chosen for a very special and important occasion, it is vital that the wine be thoughtfully and perfectly picked out. To complement the occasion, the wine should be superb, and satisfy the bride and groom and their guests.

There are things that you should keep in mind when choosing wine for a wedding party, so don't merely pick anything you normally buy, or the first thing that you see at the liquor store.
• The demographics of the invited people. Ask yourself if they opt for red or white wine. If you feel the crowd would love to have quantities alcohol available, get both types. If you feel the guests will be mainly men, and younger men at that, you might think of offering beer as alternative liquor to be available. This can also give you an idea how large a number of bottles of wine should be ordered, thus, your financials will also be considered.
• To be on the safe side, select champagne instead. Almost everybody feels excited to see a bubbly served, and doesn't have to be expensive as champagne flutes are not filled all the way to the top of the glass. If you think champagne will be out of your price range or that too many guests might not like its taste, consider a sparkling cider version instead. It's close to the same experience, but sans the alcohol aftertaste.
• For a truly 'democratic' choosing of wine, host a wine-tasting outing with some members of the entourage. You can obscure the labels on the bottle and have them debate which ones they prefer. For wallet-friendly reasons, you can select bottles at a cheap price range so no matter which they select; it is always a preferred price.
• Stock more than you think you need, edibles and beverages, so you don't have to say you're out. It is a celebration, so you should really consider and figure the numbers so you can stock a bit, not too many, extra to offer.
• Advise staff to top off only glasses of guests who asked. You don't need automatic refills because not everyone will finish their second refill. Even though you want every guest attended to, you aren't looking for full glasses left on the table as it might give the wrong impression that not everyone drank at all.

Wine is a drink that can be welcome on regular days but especially at weddings, wines are meant for a more special and specified purpose – to offer romance to the revelers in the occasion.

Because it is a representation of love, the wine should be poured and selected with as much passion and zest as warrants the occasion. So enjoy your wine, and in any other gathering where wine is an option – cherish life, love and romance.
