Could you get some bottles of champanade? (I think that’s what it’s called.) It’s basically sparkling white grape juice, but it comes in a nice bottle that looks like champagne. I know our grocery store’s sell it, so you could look for it there and then ask the venue if they could pick up a few bottles.

I’d have the bartender or server ask people if they wanted “alcoholic or non-alcoholic champagne”.

A lot of people don’t drink champagne even if they do drink alcohol and they end up just toasting with their water glass/beer/other beverage in front of them. Chances are your guests that aren’t drinking alcohol will be drinking something else and can just toast with that. I don’t think they’ll be offended to not receive another option, or to receive the alcohol option and not drink it.

I went to a reception party a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t feeling too well and just toasted with Fanta (in an appropriate glass, not the can)! Noone batted an eyelid and I didn’t fee awkward at all.

 

It might just be me but I think you’re overthinking it. The non-drinkers will just help themselves at the open bar and toast with what they’re drinking.

Cider. I have been to a lot of weddings that had that as an option. I always got it because I don’t like champagne.

I second the sparkling juice.  You could always have a few bottles avaliable.  I think Martinelli’s is like $5/bottle at most (it’s the best brand and I drink it at holidays) and there are some cheaper brand (Welches) for $2 on sale.  

Depending on their reasoning I might avoid Fre or other low-alchohol liquior.  Yes they have a very minor amt of booze (like .01%) but for many people in recovery or w/ a medical condition that is not an option.  

It’s also not a big deal for people to toast with coffee, water soda or an empty cup.
