Teenagers shouldn’t be serving alcohol— it’s against the law in most places and while you’d probably never get caught, if you did, that is a pretty massive fine to the venue which they will likely pass along to you.

You could consider chilling the champagne “splits” which hold about a glass or two, and setting them on the tables, one per guest, taking care not to set any in front of underaged guests. If you set them out directly before dinner, they should still be at a good serving temperature when it’s time for a toast.  Guests can then open the champagne and pour their own glass.

Alternately you can hire servers pretty cheap from your local culinary school— get a couple, making sure they are of legal drinking age, and have them pour the champagne. Also have them man the self-service bar, again the laws surrounding serving alcohol to minors can put you in a very bad position if a minor were found helping themselves to beer or wine.

@MomToSix:  Why not just keep it self serve and 15-20 mins before the toast just annouce it and let the guests get their own champagne/sparkling cider.
