I thought I would start a thread, mainly just for my own organization, but who knows someone might come along and want to do this also.

The day after our wedding we are doing a wine tour with our friends and family. we are chartering a bus and going to 4-5 wineries and stopping for lunch at one of the wineries. I have been able to negotiate some great rates for private tastings and some tours about $10 for most. So all together the day will be about $60 and we will be able to taste 4-5 wines at each winery and many will be giving our guests glasses to take home.


I am so excited about this I think its going to be a fun relaxing day with all of our friends and a great opportunity for me to still have a destination feel for my wedding.


So far we are going to start around 10:30 leaving our hotel on the charter bus.

The bus will take us to a private tasting/tour at V. Sattui and then after that people will be able to roam around V. Sattui for about 45 minutes to eat lunch at their deli or go to the gift shop.

Then we will head next door to my FI's favorite winery, Franciscan.

After that we will head to Diamond Oaks and then we are still working on the other 1-2 wineries.


I will post the winery info as well as the charter bus info.

You're going to love the wine tasting trip! What a great activity to do with your guests! We did this about 6 months ago with a large group and had a great time. I think my favorite vineyard we went to was Duckhorn, but it might have been my favorite because we had a very nice wine tasting paired with a catered lunch there outside on the vineyard...It was awesome!


I can't wait to hear how much fun all of your guests have!

so I have finally confirmed with the wineries. We have found 4 wineries all near each other and will be chartering a bus. The cost will be $55 a person.

We are starting at Peju Province

Then heading to V. Sattui where we will also have time to browse the shop and eat some lunch

After that next door to Franscian (my FI's favorite) which includes a souvinere glass

The last stop will be Diamond Oaks which has a great patio with a view of the valley that we will be able to relax and enjoy as our last stop.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
