    Haha like the PPs, your title definitely caught my attention ๐Ÿ˜‚ Two questions: 1) How many toasts do you plan on having? More than one or two, shots are probably not a good idea lol, and (2) Can you do both? I don’t see it as tacky per se, but I personally don’t like them (anymore–age *sigh*), and I’m guessing there may be guests at your wedding that feel the same, so it may be nice if they could opt for champagne.

    So, I can’t get over the title… lol

    also, I second the signature drink idea. Or a toast with beer. Shots remind me of a frat house.

    I think you know your demographic better than we do. Generally, I’d go for champagne, but I don’t see anything wrong with doing a shot either. I think as long as you have something boozy for people to toast with if they don’t want a shot, it would be fine.

    Just make sure you don’t end up having 9 people give toasts, or everyone will end up with alcohol poisoning. ๐Ÿ˜

    Came here for the title ๐Ÿ˜‚, but figured you meant shots. My venue didn’t even allow shots, but personally I’d prefer champagne (even more so a signature drink) over shots anyway as it seems more elegant to me. I’m also not a big drinker so don’t do shots anyway, so not sure if I’m much help in this department. If your crowd is the shots type and would enjoy that more, I’d say go for what you’d enjoy most!

    Champagne. Anybody I know who doesn’t like champagne automatically toasts with whatever beverage they already have. Keep it simple!

    Why not just have people toast with whatever they have? Champagne toasts end up wasting soo much, and not everyone will want to do a shot. Save the money you’d spend on these and add them to the bar for people to order ๐Ÿ™‚
