We had one at a high school homecoming dance. There were little spouts where you filled up your cup, so it wasn’t too messy (not like a chocolate fountain). You could play it safe and use a punch that wont stain. But I would definitely have little cocktail napkins at the table to wipe the side of the glass if there are drips.

I wouldn’t put champagne in the fountain, but I loved them as a kid and they make me a bit nastalgic (sp?).   Champagne or sparkling wine will loose its bubbles when its flowed.  (Sorry my spelling is really off today)

Speaking soley just on my own opinion. I HATE fountains, chocolate or otherwise. There’s just something about the fact that people kind of put there hands in there. It’s a weird phobia of mine, my sister on the other hand thought this was an awesome idea!

There’s always a chance of something going wrong with a punch fountain: someone gets their hands in there, a drunken guest thinks it’s funny to drink directly out of the fountain, or something falls into it.

Consider having the look of the fountain without filling it with punch.

despite all the gross-ness that COUld occur.  I think it’d be fun, and unique now a days.  I’d really enjoy seeing one!

I don’t mind champagne and punch fountains as I think they can be elegant. I went to one wedding though that has vodka, cranberry, whiskey, and coke fountains with a sign that said “We is Poor, So Pour Your Own”  I thought it was kind of trashy (and the guests got waaaay to drunk).

I think the champagne would lose its bubbles!

I like the whimsy of the idea, though.

This is just my opinion, but fountains seem to be in the same category as ice sculptures and giant wedding gowns: they were “classy” in the 80s, and now seem really passe. Understated things are much more in now, so that is probably the reason. However, if it fits with your vision, I will work.

Unlike chocolate fountains, they are not messy. However they are difficult for most people to use. Tons of folks cannot stand champagne of any kind so it will be a waste of money unless you know for 100% fact that every single adult guest you invite will drink it.
