    I’m doing a champagne punch fountain and I don’t care if people think it’s cheesy. I’m sure some people will, but I think they are cute. The champagne punch is going to be pink, and my wedding colors are pink and gray so it will add to the decor. Do what you want 🙂

    I’m going to be honest and say that I think of the 80’s when I try to get a mental picture. I see lit up punch fountains next to 80’s style cakes with the multiple tears and bridges and the little fountain on the bottom.

    I don’t know. I could work, but I’m going to vote that it’s dated, but I’m not coming to your wedding. You do want you want to do.

    I almost feel like it wouldn’t save you any money. It may cut the cost of the service, but it would de-regulate how much champagne each individual will consume. Would you just fill it once and then let it run out? What you’ll save in service you may spend on more champagne. I have been to weddings where the champagne was already on the table when we got there, presumably while we were at the cocktail hour outside. Maybe that could cut costs a little since it’s not being served, only set up?

    A champagne fountain may be more expensive than cheap champagne. Most people can’t tell the difference, and you really only need champagne for the toast. 🙂

     

    Also, will it mess up the bubbles?

    i don’t think they’re cute. if you’re worried about the price, either cut out the champagne or have the servers bring around trays of glasses during the toast so that everyone gets 1.

    i don’t think a champagne fountain would be any cheaper because you’d have to keep pouring it in to keep it full enough. also, we always use a fountain at our office parties, and it freaks out with anything carbonated. you might end up with a bubbly mess.

    I would just cut out champagne all together, unless you love it. Most guests will haev a drink in their hand for the toast so they can just raise that!

    I think doing open bar all night is more than enough. People will have something for your toast.

    Personally, I am not a huge champagne fan so when I get a glass at a wedding for the toast I usually take one sip and the rest goes to waste.
