We were planning to have Sparkling wine with a strawberry as our arrival drink but we have just decided to have the speeches before the meal, so the guests will have another glass of sparkling wine for the toasts.
Is that abit of a sparkling wine overload?
Our hotel said we could have 1/2 bucks fizz and 1/2 s.wine instead for the arrival drink.
What do you all think? And what would you prefer on arrival?
Any advice appreciated

Do you have any alternatives for anyone who doesn’t drink or doesn’t like sparkling wine?

I think that sparkling wine is a great choice. Or what about serving Bucks Fizz as an arrival drink and sparkling wine with the toasts? That way everyone gets one of each? Also I tend to find that people who don’t drink much are happier drinking Bucks Fizz as it can not be as strong as sparkling wine and then they can decline the wine at the toasts.
