Bridesmaid Proposal and Wedding Wine Ideas

The Perfect Wines for Your Wedding Celebrations

Omg omg omg! You’re engaged! Your partner popped the question, you said yes, and now it’s time to take a million selfies showing off that new bling. Cue the happy tears and the “surprised hand over mouth” face – it’s time to celebrate, start planning your big day, and prepare all of the fun festivities that go along with it!

First thing’s first, you have to pop the next big question to your wedding crew! Many brides like to add a celebratory flare to their bridal party proposals with a little gift for their favorite people – but what should you include in your proposal box? Then, how will you celebrate at your bachelorette party and bridal shower? Well, there’s one thing that we know for sure, you can’t go wrong with wine for a special occasion, especially if it’s an adorable mini bottle of wine! Lucky for you, we happen to know the perfect place to find such wine and how to incorporate it into any fun event. 

Take the guesswork out of celebratory beverages for your fun wedding prep, let’s explore everything you need to keep in mind for your bridal party proposals and other wedding wine ideas!

What to include in a Bridesmaid Proposal Box

Bridesmaid Proposal Box

Nobody knows your bridesmaids quite like you do, so prepping the perfect proposal box should be a fun venture. You get to customize this personalized gift as much as you please to show the members of your wedding party just how much they mean to you and why you want them to be a part of your big day. If you find yourself stuck trying to curate the perfect proposal box, no worries! We’ve got a few ideas to help you get started. Here are a few items that you might consider adding to the cutest proposal box ever:

Include a Personal Note

Personal Note

Okay, this one seems obvious, but it’s worth mentioning! Personal, handwritten notes have become somewhat of a lost art, so including this special touch to your proposal boxes will add that bit of sentimental value. 

Silk Pajamas or a Robe are a nice touch

Satin Pajamas or Robe

This unique idea can come into play later for your future bachelorette party! Getting satin pajamas or a robe for your crew will not only be a fun, practical item that they can actually use, but you can also be ~matchy matchy~ for some cute photos when you take that fun bachelorette trip before the wedding.

Glam it up with a mini bottle of premium wine!

Mini Bottle Wine

Remember when we mentioned wine as a fun idea to add to your bridesmaid proposal boxes? Good, we thought that you would! Buying several full bottles of wine for your crew can be pricey, so we recommend adding some oomph to that proposal box with a mini bottle of wine from IGT! With its unique, single-serving size, you can rest assured that the mini bottle won’t go to waste once opened. Another perk is that it allows your future bridesmaid to celebrate the proposal in the moment with a perfectly sized glass of wine!

Bachelorette Party Ideas

Planning a bachelorette party is a lot of fun – but it can also be hard work for your maid of honor! You have to get the decorations just right, plan your outfits, pick the perfect city for your night out, and have a list of activities ready to go to keep the party going. Whew, that’s no easy task. However, we have a suggestion for a fun, chill activity that you and your bridal party will enjoy – a virtual or in-person wine tasting!

Bachelorette Party Ideas

A wine tasting with In Good Taste allows you and your bridal party to taste a variety of our fun mini bottles while sharing a fun night in on your bachelorette trip! Setting up a tasting is easy – all you have to do is pre-order the wine and schedule the tasting for one of the nights of your trip. Then, voila! You’ve just added a unique activity to your bachelorette party. Our wine tasting hosts can lead your event virtually, in-person, or during a hybrid event.

Bridal Shower Gifts

No list of wine wedding ideas would be complete without incorporating your favorite vino into your bridal shower! Bridal showers are typically enjoyed as a brunch setting, so we suggest serving light-bodied wines with a low ABV (Alcohol By Volume) wine so that you can keep the festivities going for as long as possible! We’re particularly fond of a zesty Sauvignon Blanc or delicate Pinot Grigio for those daytime sips. 

Bridal Shower Gifts

Seasonal Sips

Is your wedding theme centered around a certain season or time of year? Customize your wine selections to add an extra, thoughtful touch to your ambiance. Our seasonal collections are perfect for those festivities that are planned in the warmer months. Maybe you’ve got a vibrant autumn wedding or a cheery, bright winter wedding? We think that calls for our Red Red Wine collection to add a little warmth to those celebrations in the cooler months. What about a romantic, Valentine’s Day wedding? To add a touch of romance, you can’t go wrong with some pink rosé or a Dozen Rosés

Seasonal Wines for a thoughtful touch

We know that you just can’t wait for all of the fun festivities leading up to your wedding day, and we can’t wait to help you celebrate these special moments with the perfect wine for any occasion. That being said, there’s only one thing left to do. We’d like to raise a glass to you, your future, and the planning ahead for your special day and everything that goes along with it. Cheers!

Rosé of Sangiovese

Andiamo

Sangiovese can be found in both the Chianti and Montalcino regions of Tuscany (it all sounds so romantic, right?) and is known for producing classic medium-bodied wines. Rosé wine is actually made from red grapes, and this is where the Rosé of Sangiovese comes to play. Crisp, fruit-forward, and easy-to-drink, it's everything you want in your bottle of Rosé and more.

$19.99

Montepulciano

Andiamo

Big, bold, and full of flavor—exactly what you’d expect an Italian wine to be! This classic Italian grape produces some of Italy’s most straightforward red wines and is often used as a blending grape. Not here, though. We let Montepulciano do the heavy lifting as a heavy red wine and shine on its own. If you enjoy the smell of leather bound books, nibbling on dried fruit, and complementary notes of bitter, dark chocolate and sweet plums, you will love this Italian wine. No need to pair it with any certain dish—Montepulciano tastes great with all the Italian classics.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Unprecedented

If Pinot Noir is the light and juicy queen of reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is her bolder, heavier, meatier sister. Often referred to as just “cab,” it’s the wine of France’s Bordeaux and California’s Napa Valley. There’s nothing subtle about Cabernet Sauvignon—high in alcohol, full-bodied and robust, you can usually find this red served with a ribeye, New York Strip, or filet mignon (re: carnivores love cab). Classic cabs usually offer tasting notes of chocolate, coffee, and darker fruits like prunes and plums. The Unprecedented Cabernet Sauvignon is as classic as they come, and we highly recommend letting the bottle sit and mellow until your next red meat and potatoes dinner!

Pinot Grigio

La Pluma

If you’re looking for more zest in your life, a bottle of Pinot Grigio can provide that. We included a classic Pinot Grigio in the La Pluma collection because we’re all about light and easy here, which is exactly what this grape from Italy is. It has that dry sense of humor that seems so effortless with a punchy acidity to keep you on your toes, all while offering notes of lemon, limes, green apples, and honeysuckle. Long story short; when it’s been a heavy day and your soul is seeking light things only, you’ll be happy to have this bottle on hand.

Pinot Noir

Unprecedented

We couldn’t create the In Good Taste Unprecedented collection without the Golden Retriever of wines: Pinot Noir. Pinot is likable, it’s easy, and its natural state of being is simply charming. It’s an incredibly easy red wine to love, which is why so many people do. The grape itself is from the Burgundy region of France, but has made its way to California, Oregon, Australia, Italy, Argentina, and Germany since. Our Pinot Noir has no surprise twists—it’s a classic light red with just the right amount of sweetness to keep you coming back for another glass (or two).

Coteaux Bourguignons

Passport

The Burgundy region of France is home to their best Pinot Noirs, but we took the grapes into our own hands to create something extra special with our Coteaux Bourguignons. It’s a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, which results in a French red that’s light in body but full in flavor. The ripest blueberries and freshest herbs can be easily detected in this French burgundy blend. May we suggest pairing it with some creamy brie and freshly baked bread? It’s a oui-ning combo.

$25.99

Verdicchio

Andiamo

A little sweet. A little tart. A little salty? You truly get it all with this white Italian wine. If you're into that biting acidity, Verdicchio will probably be high on your list of most-loved wines from our Andiamo collection. Citrus fruits like mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit are at the forefront, but what really sets this Italian wine apart is its distinct notes of almond. While our Verdicchio can start out tasting a bit tart, the more you sip, the smoother it becomes. In fact, we suggest approaching it as an aperitif (Italian for an alcoholic drink sipped before a meal to stimulate the appetite) to experience its full effect.

$23.99

Côtes du Rhône White

Passport

This was one of our first French wines to join the Passport collection and one sip will explain why. Some background on the Rhône Valley in France: While this region is known for its dark, juicy reds, a very small amount of special white wines are made in the Rhône Valley. Our Côtes du Rhône is packed with French-perfected, floral flavor and Old-World charm. Its natural tang paired with the weighty Marsanne grape and aromatic Roussanne grape results in a crisp, savory sip that’ll transport you to a sunbathing chair by the Rhône itself.

$23.99

Bordeaux Rouge

Passport

When you picture medieval folk sitting around a feast with goblets of wine, chances are they were drinking Bordeaux. This wine has been made in France since forever and is arguably the most classic French wine out there. Bordeaux is known for its full body, smoky notes, and rich, oaky taste. If you love cabs, chances are you will adore Bordeaux. For our Passport wines, we had to include this classic French red for you to sip and enjoy to your heart’s content. Best savored over a rich meal like lamb ragu, ratatouille, or BBQ.

$21.99

Ventoux Rosé

Passport

You probably know that the Tour de France is held on Ventoux Mountain in France, but did you know that the same area is known for its high-altitude rosé? This is the kind of quintessential French rosé that you don’t need to spin your wheels over—it’s simply delicious, crisp, and perfect for warm weather. Despite its delicate, pale pink color, each sip is lush with flavor, from tropical passionfruit and zesty citrus to refreshing melon. This has the potential to be your new summer go-to, so we’d suggest stocking up.

$21.99

Tempranillo

Wild Child

Say “¡Hola!” to Spain’s main grape: Tempranillo. This red grape put Rioja wine on the map and is un vino tinto classico. It’s best compared to a classic cab, but with a bit more unique magic that’s hard to put your finger on, which is why it’s a part of our Wild Child line. This medium- to full-bodied wine with its relatively higher tannins usually offers complex notes of cherry, fig, cedar, tobacco, and dill. This is the type of red wine you want to buy and pour for a Latin-infused meal; think carne asada, tacos al carbon, or just perfectly cooked steak fajita meat.

Grenache

La Pluma

We knew the only red in the La Pluma collection had to be exceptionally good and exceptionally light. That’s why including a Grenache was a no-brainer. If smooth, fruit-forward, light-bodied reds appeal to your tastebuds, this could be your new favorite. The grape itself is tricky; depending on the climate of where its grown, Grenache wines could be light, dense, or somewhere in the middle. La Pluma’s version has all the airiness and flavor notes we wanted in our Grenache, which is how we know you’ll love it. Get the most of this red by pairing it with roasted meats, spice-heavy vegetables, and Mexican-inspired dishes with lots of cumin.

$27.99

Moscato

Andiamo

This grape goes by different names in most European countries, but what remains the same is its fruity floral nature. Delicate in every way and extremely quaffable, this wine is as dainty as they come.

Barbera

Andiamo

We really try not to play favorites at In Good Taste, but there is just something about an Italian Barbera that hits different in the best way. Barberas are the perfect wine for pizza night; they're low in alcohol, and medium-bodied but taste super light, and their berry and plum flavors pair incredibly well with savory tomato sauce and cheese! Another fun thing about Barberas? They actually taste great when chilled, which is not something we're in the habit of suggesting for our red wines. Our Italian Barbera lies somewhere between the body of a cab and a pinot and is the ideal choice for a "ladies who lunch" kind of afternoon.

Vermentino

Wild Child

We couldn't not have a weird white in the mix, right?! The Vermentino grape is native along the coast of Italy on the island of Sardinia (yeah, like the fish). Because of its origin, this grape offers a salty, crisp flavor that's incredibly easy to drink and enjoy. We say it's "weird" only because it's not widely known by name, but chances are you've probably had it before if you've ever ordered white wine in an Italian restaurant. If you love peaches and lemons and get a kick out of anything that reminds you of the sea, our Vermentino is the perfect Italian white to experience on a sunny day outside.

$23.99

Viognier

Unprecedented

For the Chardonnay lovers who are looking to dig a bit deeper in the world of bold whites, a Viognier (pronounced vee-own-yay) could be your next big adventure. Viogniers tend to have more range; while they can be creamy with hints of vanilla like their Chardonnay counterpart, they also offer lighter, fruitier flavors like tangerine, mango, and honeysuckle. It’s still a more full-bodied white wine, but unlike Chardonnay, it’s softer on acidity and more perfumed. Spend an afternoon with a glass of Viognier amongst the flowers and it’ll all make sense.
