the Perfect Pairing Planning your wedding can be a dream experience, with some unique inspiration and planning tips from Cupcake’s wedding expert, Alison Hotchkiss.

The Signature Wedding Wine

Food Style The food you serve and how you serve it says a lot about how you want to celebrate your big day. There is no right or wrong only what works for you: • Do you want to serve dinner plated, family style or as a buffet? • Do you want a dessert bar featuring your personal favorites? Assorted cupcakes? A traditional wedding cake? • Consider other signature flourishes, such as paper cones filled with French fries or a midnight snack to keep the party going. Cupcake has a delicious midnight snack menu at CupcakeWeddings.com. Looking for some foodie inspiration for your wedding? Visit CupcakeWeddings. com/VirginiaBride to find Cupcake’s seasonal, versatile and delicious menus. Get ready to Love Deliciously!

46 vowbride.com

A Red, A White and Some Bubbles • Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are very popular varietals at weddings right now. • Cupcake Vineyards winemaker Adam Richardson also suggests Pinot Grigio and Cabernet Sauvignon as your red and white wine choices. • A sparkling wine adds that celebratory element, and Cupcake has two beautiful bubblies: Cupcake Prosecco and Cupcake Moscato d’Asti. • Use our beverage calculator at CupcakeWeddings.com to help estimate your beverage needs.

Cupcake at your wedding! We want you to experience the wedding of your dreams. The Cupcake Vineyards Celebratory Bottle Program helps by elevating your beverages, not your budget, and includes: • Limited-edition keepsake 3L* bottle of Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon • Silver ink pen for guests to sign the bottle • Cake kine set

Ask your caterer or hotel, or visit CupcakeWeddings.com for more information. For more of Alison’s tips, visit CupcakeWeddings.com

*One 3L bottle of Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon is equivalent to 4 standard 750mL bottles. ©2013 Cupcake Vineyards, Livermore, CA

Memories and scents go hand-in-hand

so choose a fragrance that embodies the essence of your wedding day. Discover the perfect signature scent using these five tips:

Kim Wadsworth




Choose a new fragrance when olfactory senses are at their peak, usually in the afternoon; and test only two at a time.



Identify you. Do you love citrus and sweet (summer); spicy musk (fall /winter); or floral (spring)?



Everyone’s body chemistry is different. Before you buy a fragrance you’ve smelled on a friend and loved, try it first to be certain it mixes with you.


Aim for the pulse those points matter. Include the wrist, neck, decolletage and behind the knees.




Perfume takes 30 minutes to dry. Spritz on your scent once your dress is on to smell all the notes of the fragrance.


GOING FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY PERSONAL? Companies like Original Scent create signature fragrances and unity candles with your favorite elements. From $99. Originalscent.com
