    First off, I’m glad there are no shits involved…phew! That being said, I wouldn’t take a shot even if it was for a toast. I don’t like shots and they get people more messed up faster than a drink. Not only is champagne way classier, but its a safer bet too. People often underestimate how much a shot will impact them and you don’t want a lot of sloppy people at your wedding.

    endlessjj :  you could do neither and just let people get their drink of choice at the bar and toast with that. That’s what we did

    Are you having an impromptu Vegas wedding? If so, then maybe shots. Otherwise, champagne is the classier choice.

    endlessjj :  I don’t think it’s a “classy or not classy” thing. Shots are a fun idea. Some people just won’t do shots, because they get super messed up!

    I went to a great wedding where the mother of the bride had made a bottle of sloe gin for each table. It was handed out with shot glasses for the toasts as well as a glass of prosecco for those that preferred it. Worked really well and was a bit different.

    I think it depends on what the shot will be.  There might be all of two people on our guest list who’d be willing to drink champagne, but we haven’t decided what to do with instead yet.  Big difference between a birthday cake shot or something similarly cutesy and generally friendly and a purple nurple or what have you.
