Bridesmaids, Food & Drink

Cookie cutter showers and bachelorette parties are so last season. For the bride who's looking for a special way to celebrate with her friends, Swirl Event's private in-home wine tastings are the perfect party choice. Their Celebrity Tasting package, which compares vintages to their famous counterparts, is designed for the bride who wants to have a blast discussing whether a wine is more like Brad Pitt (smooth and suave) or Mariah Cary (lush and full-bodied). And for the green-minded bride, they have a great Eco-Chic package which matches organic and biodynamic wines with local cheeses. Best of all, their team of experts (known as the "Swirlettes") organize everything from the glasses to the tasting note cards, ensuring that throwing an unforgettable party will be effortless and fun. —Kathryn Papanek
