I second the domaine st michelle recommendation. You should also look at doing Cristalino. Inexpensive and delicious.

How much do you want to spend? I would totally rec. Moet & Chandon White Star. It is my personal favorite (I drink champagne frequently).

I agree with Linzetti and Clair. M & R Asti Spumante is a wonderful sparkling wine for the price (around $9.00/bottle…you can’t beat that with a stick!). Not too sweet and agreeable for most palettes.

I am having a hard time recommending something without knowing your budget or your crowd.  To my mind, picking a sparkling wine can either be super easy or one of the hardest wedding decisions, depending on these factors.  Are you serving bubbly all night from the bar or just for a toast?  What type of wedding are you having?  What do most of your guests like to drink?  Are you guests big foodies/wine drinkers?

I LOVE champagne, and we are serving it all night, but my mom and her friends are all champagne snobs – live in wine country, super knowledgable, and definitely know what they like!  When we set out to find a bubbly to serve, we knew that we would either need to spend a lot and buy something that everyone would appreciate, or buy something that no one had ever heard of, but that would impress on the tongue.  I obviously went for cheaper but fabulous.  Wink

Vueve Cliquo Vintage is my absotue fave!!! I am kind of a champagne snob though. While I do enjoy the taste of some of the sparkling wines, I can for sure tell the difference.

have you considered prosecco? it’s italian and could be a cost effective and tasty option. you could also do a special drink and add some pomegranate juice to your champagne/prosecco for a specialty cocktail. maybe even drop a raspberry in it to be pretty!

Not too expensive sparkling wine by Gloria Ferrer is my favorite!!!  Also, Prosseco, the Italian version of champagne is very inexpensive and delicious.

I highly recommend Jacobs Creek sparkling Pinot Noir blend.  It’s about $9.99 a bottle.  I love Veuve Cliquot and other high end brands, but this is a great sub.  Trader Joes also has a prosecco for about $6.99 that is really good.  Can’t remember what it’s called, but it has a green label.

I wholeheartedly second Cristalino!  Very inexpensive (under $10/bottle), very tasty!
