i think it might be a little strange if the both of you showed up w/ champagne flutes in hand but the rest had nothing.. is there a way to ensure that they have something else to drink in their hands ahead of the toast?

Yes.  What do you mean “kind of just for us”?  Do you plan on having champagne flutes for you and your hubby and just have everyone watch you toast and drink?  That’s a bit bizarre in my opinion…

I don’t know if this is what you are referring to, but some couples drink champagne from special flutes right after their cake cutting. They do the whole thing where they entwine their arms to drink it, which looks really hard to me! I have been to several weddings where there were no formal toasts, but the bride and groom did this, just the two of them, as a part of the cake cutting tradition. It could be a regional thing, but if you’ve seen it done like that before, and you don’t think your guests would be confused or put off, I think doing that would be fine.

Having said that, if you are going to have an actual toast, like one of you is going to say something, you should have all your guests join in. That doesn’t mean you have to provide champagne for all of them – you could simply say, “Please raise your glass with us!” and they will toast with whatever beverage is on hand.
