A case is 13, but 3 or 6 nice bottles are nice. So is cash.

I think your gift of money and a bottle of champagne is fine. Honestly, I think the etiquette dictations are a bit outdated. Give what you feel comfortable with. I haven’t heard of any couple who has said, “Ughhh, money again?”

We don’t drink so this isn’t good. I would much rather prefer something from the registry. But if you know the couple good and think its something they will like then a bottle or 2 of nice champagne and some money would be great.

I love champagne, but if someone gave me a case I would have to laugh, that seems like a lot. So one bottle of champagne plus money would be THE BEST! 🙂

 

@Olive12:  hahahaha, so true, when you think about it

Ahaha…I dont know what the hell we would do with a CASE of champagne – Id probably end up giving most of it away.  I think a bottle or two with a card is a lovely gift that I’d be quite happy to receive.

I have to say we’d probably give most of it away if we recieved a case! We like to drink, but we don’t do so often. Even for people who drink more than we do I think one bottle plus the money is just fine. Many people just give money or a gift card without a bottle of champagne. I would consider the champagne a nice bonus! Wink

A case is 12 bottles (sometimes 6, but 12 is standard). We would be overjoyed to get a case of any wine, though I’m assuming a case of champagne is intended as a once a month celebration (maybe once each month for the first year of marriage?). I would seriously love someone to stock our wine rack, but you really have to know the couple. Frankly, we buy a case at a time when we buy wine/champagne, because it’s cheaper, so it doesn’t really seem odd to me.

A case? That just seems crazy. I’d say if you want to give champagne get one nicer bottle, it comes off as a lot less psychotic

I think your original idea of a nice bottle of champagne with a monetary gift sounds lovely: modern, but with a nod to formal etiquette of the past.

I like champagne and wine. I wouldn’t want a case of either! One bottle is more than enough.
