    We’ve decided not to do it for the very same reasons you mention.  I’ve attended a lot of weddings where people just toast with whatever drink they already have… and that’s what we’re doing too.

    @BlondeBride090211: What about doing a toast with Cava, Prosecco, or other sparkling wine that is less expensive.

    If you have a Trader Joe’s near you maybe you can bring in your own sparkling wine for $4-$7 a bottle.

    We are doing the same thing. Who says a toast has to be with champagne anyway? I see it as another scam the WIC told brides that they HAD to have to make it a good wedding.

    I figure, not everyone likes champagne, myself included. Do I want to spend the money on something I won’t enjoy drinking as well as some of my other guests? I’ve been to weddings where I’ve seen champagne glasses still full just sitting out on tables untouched. Waste of money.

    You do what you want to do. If you don’t want it, don’t have it. No one is going to hold their nose up if you don’t have it. And if they do, screw them. Why are they at your wedding anyway?

    We just did a regular toast and the only people who got champagne were me and Darling Husband – I dont think anyone cares!

    We are toasting with our drinks. It was an easy decision for us. We’ve been to so many weddings people take that one sip of champagne and the rest gets tossed. It’s a pricey add on too. People have all night to drink oepn bar, no one will care they don’t have champagne.

    If you want champagne have it for just the two of you and let everyone drink what they normally drink.

    Ours was included in the dinner price, otherwise I would have taken it out.

    We’re brining in our own Cava and everyone is getting that, but that  only works since we can bring our own and our family friend owns a liquor store (getting it at cost!).  I actually can’t remember any weddings I’ve been to where they do a champagne toast for everyone, it has just been the couple.  I wouldn’t miss it if I were a guest, especially since you are kind enough to provide an open bar!

    It sounds like you’ve already made up your mind to me. Cut the toast and I’m sure you can use that money elsewhere.

    Most of the weddings I’ve been to have just had the guests toast with their own drinks. Works for me!
