Required Reading: The World's Greatest Wines
It can be daunting to plan the wine menu for your reception on your own (luckily most couples will hire a caterer). Bettane and Desseauve’s massive tome, The World’s Greatest Wines, offers an excellent, in-depth overview of the best wines the world over, from Antinori “Super Tuscans” to Napa’s statusy Opus One Cabernet to a variety of comparative newcomers from South Africa, Japan, and beyond. The relatively younger vineyards featured will be a godsend for couples on a budget, and the well-edited list will serve as a trustworthy source for couples looking to add a few splurge-worthy bottles to their registry list.
