Both Fiance and I do not like champagne.
We were thinking of using white wine and Non alcohol sparkling juice for toasting.
White wine for those drinkers in the family
Non alcoholic for the children and many christians.
Any suggestion on the flavor of sparkling non-alcoholic will be helpful.

Mmm sounds yummy. Our venue carries raspberry sparkling juice for the non-drinkers and I think that sounds delicious!

I’ve been to a wedding where they used sparkling cider for the toasts (the bride and groom were too young to drink lol)

Sparkling cider is fine and a lot of places will offer it for kids and non-drinkers anyway, but I would encourage you to consider trying a variety of sparkling wines, not just champagne. There are other varieties and a huge range of taste within each type. I thought I didn’t like sparkling wines/champagnes until I found a rather sweet Prosecco, and that introduced me to a whole world of sparkling wines and I now like most of them, sweet or not.

We skipped the champagne toast for our wedding and did the sparkling cider. It was a huge hit.

We didn’t do anything sparkling for our toasts, because it would have cost a TON more to order the champagne/sparkling wine just for the toasts. We just let people toast with whatever drink they had gotten for dinner.

We are huge fan of Martinelli’s. They have regular cider, grape apple cider and then of course my favorite the cranberry apple.

I found out that Ikea of all places has a really delicious sparkling pear drink. My fiancee is a non-drinker, and he has chosen to do his toasting with the Ikea pear!

you can always just let people toast with whatever drink they happen to have. no meed for anything extra.

These days most weddings I attend have the guests just toast with whatever they are currently drinking.

Even if you don’t like champagne/sparkling wine, your guests might! You can have white wine for yourselves even if the others have bubbly. However, I agree based on the weddings I’ve been to that most people will just top up whatever they are drinking… I know a lot of ladies especially like a glass of bubbly at weddings.

I agree that your dislike of champagne shouldn’t really dictate what the guests are drinking. Also what does being christian have to do with not drinking? I was raised catholic and every priest I’ve every known drank.
