Six glasses to a bottle, you’ll need 14 bottles. Better get a few extra to be safe – 18. What’s your budget for champagne?

You usually get 5-6 generous serves per bottle of champagne.

What’s your budget for a bottle? That is really the deciding factor on what people will reccomend. Are you particularly wanting a champagne (as in genuine champagne from France) or are you ok with a sparkling wine or prosecco?? 

A good idea is to determine your price point and go to a online alcohol store and filter your search according to price. A lot of people rate their purchases on those online stores so it will give you a good idea as to what to buy.

Another thing to remember is that most people don’t really care/know about wine/champagne/beer/whiskey etc. If you provide it most will drink happily.

I personally prefer prosecco as I find most champagne to be dry for me and I prefer the sweet taste of prosecco. Also it will be cheaper!

If you want an actual champagne I would go for the Laurent Perrier Brut, most vintages are quite decent, and it’s a pretty standard entry level champagne that shouldn’t cost you a fortune. 

To help you break down your bottle numbers, the average wine bottle is 26oz. The standard pour for wine is 5oz. You should be able to get 5 portions per wine bottle. For champagne the standard pour is 3 oz, bottles are typically still 26oz. You should be able to get 8 glasses per bottle. That’s if they have champgne “coupe” glasses most caterers use a flute style and you’ll most likely have a 5oz pour instead.

sweirdo :  I would choose a pinor noir champagne rather than a blend. 

Given you’ve already chosen a pinor noir red I’m the sort of person who would choose a pinor noir white to match.
