We’re going to skip it because it seems like a hassle.  We’ll just do toasts with whatever folks are drinking at the moment.

In addition to it being a hassle, so many times I’ve seen people toast and then just leave the rest of the champagne – seems like a waste as well!

We’re having champagne simply because I love it…whatever toasts we have will be with whatever people are drinking at the time.

There will be lots of bubbly at our wedding celebrations (champagne toast following our family only ceremony, champagne toast on the dock before leaving for the reception, and champagne at the large reception (however we will be using a prosecco or cava instead with sparkling cider for the non-drinkers).

I like a good cava or prosecco almost as much as a good champagne, and they are far less expensive.  For the reception toasts, it will be available, but not neccessarily poured and served to everyone.  It will be part of the open bar, and guests will be free to drink it the same as wine. I prefer to drink prosecco or cava in the summer over wine.

We had champagne available, but didn’t specifically pass it out for toasts.  Guests just went with whatever they were drinking.

We did a champagne toast immediately after we were pronounced.   While we were signing the certificate the servers passed out all the champaigne and when we returned to the front to be announced we did the toast and then made our way back up the aisle.   

we decided to do this because wthwarted to start the party off and we also really wanted to have a drink before running off to do our pictures.

My SO doesn’t like it and I can take it or leave it to be honest. So we’re skipping it as its an added expense. We might do a signature cocktail though as that is much more “us”.

We were planning on champagne toasts until we found out the cost. It was easy to cut it out of the budget. We’ll toast with whatever everyone is drinking at that time.

We’re also a champagne family…the bubbly will be flowing.  But as a guest I wouldn’t think anything if it wasn’t served. 

To be honest, all I expect as a guest at a wedding is a wedding and some food…any food…and something to drink…anything.
