    What you are doing (full bar, white/red wine) is fine. Stop thinking about it.

    We didn’t have it! We all just toasted with what we were drinking!

    I always seem to like the idea of champagne for special occasions but then when i start to sip it i remember that I don’t like the taste that much! I don’t see a problem with not having it but i have heard some people wonder why it’s missing. If you have other drink options than i wouldn’t worry about it. 

    We are serving it before the ceremony at a champagne reception while people come in but we aren’t serving it the rest of the night. We will have wine, beer and some specialty drinks for the actual reception.

    I think having champagne for toasts is a nice touch but with the other choices you have it isn’t needed. 🙂

    I voted yes…. only because if I were a guest I would notice it wasn’t there for the toasts and I guess that kind of counts as missing it… but I wouldn’t really miss it in the way that I would mind one way or another. 🙂 If you don’t have champagne I think that would be alright.

    I actually had to pay extra just so I could have it, otherwise half the reception would have been miffed.

    We had real champagne at the luncheon following the ceremony, and Prosecco at the at-home reception.  However, I did these things only because (for complicated reasons) we didn’t pay extra for it, either place.  I think having guests toast with whatever they are currently drinking is fine.

    We didn’t have it at our wedding.  People just toasted with their drink of choice, and it was fine.

    I enjoy champagne, and I’d notice if there wasn’t any, but I wouldn’t be upset or put out in any way.
