Do you love pairing wine and cheese for cocktail parties and fêtes with guests? Want to tie it in to your wedding reception? You’ve come to the right place! We’re even offering a giveaway from Wooden Hive just in time for the holidays! But first… we’ve talked about wine wedding ideas in the past, but wine and cheese wedding inspiration? Now that’s a new one. I don’t know why we’ve never really talked about it; perhaps it’s because this wine and cheese wedding trend is, well, trending.

I mean, it’s not every day you see a cheese wheel wedding cake, you know? Stinky, yes; but does it make a statement? You bet.

At your wedding (or during cocktail hour), you could offer professional grade pairings of wine, cheese, and olives. Here’s a guide to help.

When guests enter the reception space, help them find their seats with escort cards placed in cork holders.

For centerpieces or cute decor touches throughout, try these cute votives: just place a few corks inside a glass votive holder and add a tea light candle on top.

Or this DIY centerpiece idea, which uses grapes, wine corks in a glass vase, and a wine bottle with label for the table number.

A wine and cheese wedding would look most lovely in a winery setting. How about this gorgeous inspiration?

Gasp. That’s gorgeous.

And it also would require a sit down family style gathering, with cheese and wine flowing like good conversation.

For cocktail hour instead, you could set up a serve-yourself station with cheeses and appetizer plates so guests can sample what they’d like. I love how this is set up on a pair of wine barrels to tie in the theme effortlessly.

Are you planning a vintage wedding, or better yet, hoping to cross vintage wedding chair decorations from your to-do list? Maybe that’s a bit specific, but when you find a look you would steal yourself you just can’t help but share it.

For instance, when I spotted these pearls, I knew it would make an elegant chair decoration for a vintage wedding. Now, I’m not crazy enough to suggest or even dream of these pearls as chair decorations for every single chair. That just sounds like a headache.

Instead, I think here less is definitely more! Use the pearls as chair decor solely for the bride and groom’s chairs, or even just for the bride. An elegant, satin-ribbon-ensconced chair sounds like the perfect bridal chair adornment. It would look lovely for the bridal shower, too. I just love this.

The gold Chiavari chairs are a nice touch, no?
