I think that is an amazing solution! It really puts your resources where it means the most to you.

No one will notice.  They will toast you with whatever they are drinking!  It’s a perfect solution.

I’ve rarely been at a wedding where everyone gets a glass of champagne, however typically the bridal party still does. I’m not sure what the cost would be, but could at least you and your future hubby have champagne? If it’s not too expensive then add just the bridal party to the champagne list? I don’t think it looks cheap or tacky though and really I don’t think people expect champagne for a champagne toast at a wedding, but I may be wrong!

We are not doing a champagne toast!  It just wasn’t important to us, and we’re springing for a full bar, so people can drink what they want.  Just not champagne.  ๐Ÿ™‚  So, I really hope it’s not tacky.  Kudos to y’all for figuring out where the money will be best spent.  Anything that will save you some stress CAN’T be tacky!  ๐Ÿ™‚

We opted to not have a champagne toast either. A lot of people at weddings I’ve been to don’t even drink the champagne provided, and instead drink their own drink. I don’t think it’s tacky at all very smart!

perfect solution. I was thinking of eliminating the champagne toast as well…

There will still be a toast it will just start with “Please raise your glass to…” most people just sip the champagne anyway and then continue drinking whatever they were drinking…

I’ve never been to a wedding that did a champagne toast.  Your guests won’t even notice.  What they will notice is you having an awesome dj! Good choice ๐Ÿ™‚

As long as your guests have a glass of something in their hands at the end of the best man’s speech, that’s all that matters.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it will be fine. Last year I went to a wedding with a champagne toast and they used plastic flutes. Unfortunately, my table got a little confused because we were brought sparkling cider first which we though was our “champagne” for the toast. (I’ve seen it done before). After we’d finished filling everyone’s glasses, the waiter came by with the real champagne. We gulped down the cider so we could fill up again with champagne.

We only served beer and wine and didn’t opt for champage.  I don’t think it’s necessary if you’re only having it for a toast.

great idea, no one will notice… they’ll just toast with their glass of water, or other alcoholic beverage!

I think it’s a great solution. People will care more about a good DJ than a champagne toast.

Honestly if it weren’t already included in my package I would not pay extra for it.
