We were quoted at $2/person but we skipped it since everybody would likely have a glass of wine and we just figured people would raise those glasses instead. Plus, with 125 people, we were like, “$250 for champagne? nah”

Typically, it’s $2 – $3 per person, I would strongly suggest you skip it. No one will miss it and you can use it for something else.

You can use it towards an appetizer, if you’d prefer, or a late night snack. Or, just remove it altogether and save $!

We are keeping the champagne toast ($2 a person) and limiting our bar selection instead of offering an open bar.

If the venue only does a quarter pour for the champagne, you should get about 13-14 pours out of one bottle.  So depending on how much the bottle is is how much it would be per person.  It usually works out to about $1.50-2.50/per person.  However, some venues know that champagne is not super expensive so they throw it in for free and wouldnt negotiate a cheaper price because of it.  It cant hurt to ask though!
