I would give guests another option. I love the idea of pink champagne too, but some people can have intolerances/allergies, and others may just not like champagne at all. I think it’s always best to give people at least one choice.

Are you wanting to do this for your toast or as the only alcohol offered.  If its the toast I think its a great idea.  I might offer a pitcher of shirley temples (ginger ale or sprite with a splash of grenadine to make it pink) so that a guest who doesn’t want to drink has an option.  If you are planning on serving it as the only alcohol at the reception I think you will find a lot of people don’t like champagne at all and may not be happy that there is no other choice.

Mr TTR and I are BIG Foodies & Wine Lovers…

There are lots of companies now producing Pink Sparkling / Pink Champagne (NOTE the name champagne is a registred trade mark and therefore only truly applies to a particiular type of bubbly wine made according to strict rules from the Champagne Region in Fance).

Worldwide, you’ll find “bubbles” from small local vineyards, to medium sized ones (such as here in Canada’s Niagara Wine Region)… thru to the HUGE Corps found Internationally from the USA, France, Spain, Australia (Veuve Clicquot – Friexenet – Wolf Blass etc)

Sparkling / Champagne is very labour intensive to produce… so that attributes in part to the cost

Pink Sparkling / Champagne, is just the same as the white variety… it is just that they leave the skins on the grapes for a short period of time in processing, which accounts for the “pink / rose” colouring

And just like all wines, tastes that go from Sweet (Demi-Sec) thru to Extra Dry (Extra Brut)

Personally, I think that Pink Bubbles… sounds great… go for it !!

BUT as the others have said, you may want to offer up an non-alcoholic alternative as well (also pink?)

Given that you’re having other drink options, I think exclusively pink champagne sounds really fun… and tasty.
