Selecting a wedding dress for your special day comes with a lot of considerations, one being your venue. Your wedding venue can help guide your style as you choose between necklines, fabrics, silhouettes, and embellishments. And while some venues are a little easier to dress for—castle weddings give that fairytale vibe while beachy nuptials exude relaxation and tranquility—others aren’t as straightforward. For those having a wedding at a vineyard, finding the perfect winery ensemble might seem daunting, but the good news is that the natural setting sets the stage for almost any day-of aesthetic.
“Wineries make great wedding venues because they are very spacious, have a very beautiful backdrop by nature (great for pictures!), and are operated by people who love to throw the perfect event paired with good wine,” explains the chief marketing officer of Azazie, Ranu Coleman.

What makes wineries especially alluring is that they’re pretty adaptable, so you can likely find one that’ll perfectly fit whatever wedding vision you have dancing in your head. If you really want to lean into the vineyard aesthetic, though, Coleman says silk and lace dresses with vintage flare are ideal for wine country events—as are styles with lace sleeves, backless or keyhole details, low cuts, fluffy ruffles, and long trains. It’s all about letting classically stunning styles complement your chic, nature-filled setting without detracting from the ambiance.

What to Look for in a Winery Wedding Dress
Wineries are extremely adaptable, and chances are there’s a vineyard venue that’ll fit your overarching theme. As you’re perusing your wedding dress options, Coleman says you definitely want to take the aesthetic of your day into consideration and pay close attention to the details of the venue. Some vineyards are full of lush trees and old stone buildings, whereas others give desert vibes with sandy paths and plenty of sunshine. Pull from what the venue has to offer to find a style that feels authentic.
You’ll also want to keep the season in mind. “For a winter wedding, definitely opt for a romantic lace with sleeves, and for summer, something lighter, ethereal, and sleeveless,” Coleman suggests.
What kind of dress should you wear to a winery wedding?
While winery wedding dresses are typically sleek with plunging necklines, luscious lace, and long trains, that doesn’t mean you’re limited to those options. You can wear any dress you’d like on your big day, so don’t be afraid to mix and match aesthetics if your dream look has a different vibe from your dream venue.
How should you accessorize a winery wedding dress?
You’ll want to pay attention to the neckline, embellishments, and style of your dress to determine accessories. Consider statement earrings for higher neck gowns or an heirloom necklace if your bodice is a sweetheart. Most importantly, though, you’ll want to pick a pair of shoes that are conducive to your venue’s terrain. Many wineries have ceremony spaces outside with grass, gravel, or sand, which don’t work well with stilettos. Pay attention to where you’ll be walking on the big day to guide your shoe choice.
