Some may question which champagnes and wines to serve at their New Jersey wedding day, or how much of each they will need. Here are the basics that you will need to know to get the perfect mix on your New Jersey wedding day.
Many already have their favorite champagnes or wines they desire to get for their wedding, maybe it was one they shared on their favorite date, or one they acquired at another wedding.
Most likely the caterer you hired will have different selections picked out for you as well as a count of how much wine you will need based on the number of people attending. Statistics show that at weddings 30-50% will drink white wine (mostly Chardonnay), 30-50% will drink red wine (mostly Cabernet), and about 10 to 20% will drink White Zifandel.
Most men are red wine drinkers, and most women are white wine drinkers.
Another big thing to consider is the entree you are serving. Chardonnay is a popular white wine that works amazing with many seafood dishes, chicken, and pork, along with Sauvignon Blanc. For red wines, Cabernet and Merlot are the most popular options that suit a menu that includes beef or pastas with red sauces.
And lastly of course you will want to have a Champagne or sparkling wine for toasting ! This can get pricey and may be the most expensive part of your wine budget. You should plan for two glasses or champagne per guest, depending on how many toasts your family chooses to give !
