My only suggestion is if you are having your wedding at a hall or venue, and if you need a liquor permit for serving. Make sure it says yes or no to homemade wine/beer. Under some permits it doesnt allow it.

I went to a wedding where they did this…it turned out great except for one thing: they put a bottle of red and a bottle of white on each table and the caterers opened them all. So at the end of the night there were all these half-full bottles left over, with no corks….they all went to waste.

I helped a friend pick gallons and gallons of blueberries last year for thier wedding wine making adventure and it was splendid. If you allready know how and are doing it anyways it is fun to have a few bottles of something you made your selves to share with guests. Especially if you are having a smaller wedding I say go for it. Don’t worry about providing the wine for every person at a 150 person wedding or anything though, that would be nuts!

Actually, FH has been making wine from the grapes that grow in our backyard! He’s totally amateur and this won’t be the wine served to guests at the wedding, but it’ll be part of the ceremony.

My grandparents are making us 90 bottles of wine as their gift to us. We picked some beautiful wine kits from Napa Valley and Washington State. It’s gonna save us a whack ton of money, and we’ll be able to have an open bar at our venue with this wine. 

I’m not sure about the US, but it varies from province to province, but in BC you can go to a U-Brew where they essentially do all the work for you… all you have to do is pick the wine kit out, add the yeast as instructed and do the bottling yourself. They take care f temperature control, the clearing and filtering, etc… It’s way more fool-proof. In NS, Fiance and I make all our wine from home and it doesn’t come out nearly as well as the stuff from the U-Brew.

I’ve never made wine before, but my wedding is two years out and I’m thinking of trying a batch of blackberry wine. Has any of you made that before?? Any tips?
