Ok, so I’m having a small cake and champagne reception (the budget is really tight with the current economy, but I want to get married already). And I don’t really like champagne and don’t know anyone coming that does (plus it’s $38/bottle), is it unheard of to have wine instead? And sparkling cider for the children and people who don’t want to drink?

I think wine and cake is a fine combo!
You could have Prosecco instead of champagne if you want to keep a more “champagne” feel. Or, a punch made with champagne (where you could use a much cheaper champagne than if you were serving the champagne by itself).

We’re doing a wine & beer only bar, so people will just toast with whatever they’re drinking.
Not only does it save us $$ in actual alcohol but it’s 1 less type of glass we need to rent from the caterer (it was actually their suggestion as the first thing to cut to bring down cost!)
