You have to be really careful about picking the menu of a wedding and that is applicable to the beverages to be served at the occasion, too! Wine is a great choice for serving at a wedding but you have to pick the right variants. There are so many red and white wine variants that making the right choice can be tedious, more so if it is the first time you are choosing wine for an upcoming wedding.
You have to think of the type of meat to be served in a wedding menu as appetizers or in meat in dishes. Chardonnay typically goes well with red meat types. For light chicken snacks, you can always pick a lighter flavor variant like pinot grigio. For beef-based dishes, you cannot go wrong by picking Cabernet Sauvignon.
For dishes based on stronger flavored fish with a good amount of fat, you can pick lighter red wine like pinot noir. If you would rather choose a white wine variant with such fish dishes, chardonnay fits the bill. For dishes made of Mild fish like halibut and cod, go for a white wine strain like Sauvignon Blanc.
What if the majority of appetizers and main dishes are vegetable-based? Worry not, you can always pick cabernet sauvignon or merlot, both being popular red wine variants. For dishes based on seasonal produce, you can pick white wine and Riesling is a good choice.
While these tips will make picking the right wine for weddings easier, there is no hard and fast rule! You can be experimental and pick uncommon wine variants as long as you know it will go well with the people involved.
