Are the Days of Country Club & Hotel Weddings Diminishing?

Hello Wine Lovers! Hope you all made it through the storm! If I have learned anything in my first year of wedding coordinating, it’s that couples are looking for something new & unique- they want to get married somewhere none of their friends or family have been married. I’m hearing 9 times out of 10, “we don’t want to get married at a country club” or, “we aren’t interested in another hotel ballroom,” and as an event coordinator for a brand new venue, I think this is our biggest asset. It is also what makes our venue so appealing. Millennials

What is a “Bridechilla?”

Hi Wine Lovers! Sorry for not posting for awhile, I’ve been busy, busy with weddings! Speaking of weddings, we’ve all heard the term ‘Bridezilla,’ but do you know what a ‘Bridechilla’ is? I didn’t until about five minutes ago. Since starting my position here and getting to meet numerous brides, I’m finding them all to be very relaxed, and none of them strike me as Bridezillas- not one! Now, my thinking was, okay, rustic winery venue, we won’t get many bridezillas, we will get the laidback brides who want that rustic feel. However, it seems Millennials have coined the term

The Perks of Being a Millennial

Hi There Wine Lovers! Happy Tuesday & Happy (almost) Turkey Day more importantly! Now, I’ll get right into this week’s blog post.

Every generation has their flaws, but Millennials get the worst of the flaws if you search us on Google.

Why Do Millennials Have Such a Negative Rap?

We all cringe when we hear the word “millennial.” Millennials especially cringe when we hear it. The word has gained such a negative reputation, but do we really deserve the bad rap? We are classified as “lazy” and “entitled.” However, why would a lazy and entitled group of people be studied so intensely? Because maybe there is more to us than being lazy and entitled. We are the largest group of people on Earth, so maybe people should rethink the negative connotation seeing we are the now and the future. According to an article written by Matt Anderson, another fellow

How Millennials Are Changing Weddings

White dress, church wedding, cut the cake, bride’s parents pay for the wedding, groom’s pay for the rehearsal dinner, Maid of Honor, Best Man, speeches, the list goes on as to what a “traditional” wedding is supposed to look like. But, if I’ve learned anything from starting a job as an event coordinator, it’s that traditional is no longer the tradition and that is because of millennials. I found an interesting article discussing the top six things Millennials have changed in the wedding world, and they are pretty accurate. The first major change is Millennials are skipping the church ceremony.

Millennials & Phone Calls

Millennials hate phone calls. It’s a proven fact, and a group I absolutely fall into. You see us glued to our phones, but not because we are expecting a phone call, but because we are checking our texts, emails, social media, etc. The “phone” app is the 5th most used app among the general public according to research done by Forbes. So why is it we hate phone calls so much? “This generation grew up with the gradual introduction of instant messaging, texting, email, and other forms of written communication. Because they’re just as instantaneous, but provide you the ability
