i personally LOVE champagne. It is my go to drink for any occasion. We will have French 75 (champagne cocktails) for our toast. I wouldnt imagine a wedding without so I will be sure to have at my own. My FH is French so this is also very big part of his culture to have champagne for any and all occasions possible! But its theres plenty to drink, its not a big deal especially if it will be a big expense.

Champagne was all I drank all night at my wedding 🙃

My family loves champagne and so we made it a priority to have it available at my wedding (actually we had two different types) but that’s not typical of most weddings I’ve been at. If you don’t have a big champagne-drinking crowd, I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

We had it pre-ceremony as people were mingling and also at dinner and all night at the open bar. I saw a lot of people drinking it. If you can swing it, there are a lot of resonablly priced sparkling wines to choose from. Ours was not anything super high priced.

“You don’t need champagne.  You’ve got an open bar and if your guests complain that that it’s missing one particular thing, they’re entirely too focused on alcohol consumption.”

You don’t need any of it. The criteria isn’t whether rude, drunk guests will complain about the bar, but about if you want to offer this particular thing for the enjoyment of your guests given the extra costs.

If you have wine you should have champagne.

We had champagne at our open bar and most of the ladies drank that, and the men for toasts. I think this really depends on your crowd xo

Washingtonian :  Still don’t understand the connection. So if you have red and white wine do you need rose too? Cause that’s a type of wine. And for that matter, do you need port, which is also a type of wine? Help me understand the logic cause I’m not following.

IMO, any guest who would be put out by a lack of champagne at an open bar needs to get a grip. And I’m saying this as a champagne lover.

 I love champagne and my drink of choice is sparkling wine, but I’m fine if there’s Prosecco or Cava, doesn’t have to be specifically champagne, especially if someone else is paying. I do notice when there isn’t a sparkling option at all, though.
