You could do the wine idea and maybe turn it into a wine tasting? If the couple like wine, this would be the perfect start for them. Perhaps you could buy a nice bottle and have everybody sign it with a silver sharpy as a guestbook?

I think that sounds fun!  I like the wine tasting idea – maybe their favorite varietal or region.

Hey there- I think the wine/cheese shower idea is great.  You could do a wine tasting.  There are people who come out to your homes and do a wine tasting demo similiar to the pampered chef things

I think that sounds like a really awesome idea. I don’t think you would need games as everyone would be snacking and mingeling!

I think it’s a great idea!

Wine tasting can be a little difficult if you don’t have a leader with solid knowledge about wine, but you could have a blind tasting… cover the labels on the bottles and let everyone pick their favorite. It’s fun!!

I love the idea of a wine tasting as long as you are sure that most of the guests drink wine.  If you have some that don’t drink wine they may be bored. 

I don’t think you need an expert, maybe pick the few bottles and do a little info card next to each of them describing the type of grape, the type of flavor, best paired with…. etc.

I think that is a great idea, and I don’t think you need games. Are you thinking co-ed?

I think that’s an adorable idea.  As a favor, you could maybe put together a recipe book with recipes that would compliment each kind of wine.  You could just do it on small notecards or something.

I think the wine idea is perfect! You could also make a CD of the music they listened to when they first met and have that play in the background.

I think it’s a really cute idea if most of the guests like wine. And I don’t think shower games are necessary for this type of party. Good luck!

SUCH a good idea – as long as the bride wasn’t hoping for more useful things like pots and pans (which, it doesn’t sound like she is). The hubs and ai LOVE wine, and were always kind of wishing we had a “collection” of sorts. This is my kind of party/shower 🙂

i second everyone else- i think this is a great idea… i would love to have a collection of new wines! and i think signing an empty bottle, right on the glass would be soo great because then the couple could use it as a vase or centerpiece in their home. 

i dont think bridal shower games are necessary as this seems like a more “classy” party.. depending on the group it could be fun to break out more normal game night kind of bpard games.. but even that i dont think is necessary since they will be mingling.. maybe just have things on hand incase there is a lull… but i love the idea.. wine? cheese? sign me up!
