Childress Vineyards

In August I had the pleasure of visiting a local vineyard, only 30 minutes from my home. I was invited to a local meetup of a group of travelers. I knew there were vineyards in my area but never really gave it much thought.

Although I was not there for any wedding related activites, I couldn’t help but think…. Oh this is such a great spot for a wedding and started seeking out the event room. 11914883_747079905396276_5813440119313715176_n

Can you say breathtaking. Not just the room but the whole property was just amazing. So much space. So many photos opps.


I can just imagine some beautiful photographs just using this walkway.
This would be a great idea for a bridal shower or engagement party. Pair it with the wine tours and tastings and you are gold. We were able to do both and have an amazing lunch at the end. Fantastic view, fun activity, learn about wine, have some samples and enjoy the food. A perfect evening. 11953025_10207265296849012_2106068768481304113_n
So if you have a theme wedding that includes Winery, Italian, Rustic, Greek, Enchanted Garden, Tuscan, California, Outdoor, Destination or just want to have an awesome location. Childress Vineyards is the way to go. If you are not in NC and you can’t have a Destionation wedding check out your local winery or one nearby.

Schedule a tour or stop by for some lunch but you will not be disappointed by this Winery. Oh! While you are there; check out the wine slushies and have a chocolate shot. 😉

How To Pack For A Destination Wedding| Winston-Salem Wedding Planner


Airlines that allow carry on wedding gowns

Packing for a long trip is always difficult, but simplicity is the key. The great thing about most venues for destination weddings will provide everything the couple needs. So all you have to worry about is your bridal and vacation attire. We strongly urge you to bring your wedding gown onboard the plane. You don’t want to risk your dress being damaged or better yet lost (oh the horror). Destination Weddings

 Call the airlines ahead of time to see if they can store the gown on the plane. Some airlines have closets for items that need to be hung. If not the next best thing to do is pack it on your carry on. Once you arrive you can find a place that can steam or press your gown. Carry your travel documents in your purse for easy access along with any electronics to make the trip easier such as your Tablet, Cell Phone and chargers.
