Champagne - Need to Have or Nice to Have?

It's time to pop the bubbly! 馃嵕 If you have it! Smiley surprise With tons of other boozy decisions like flat rate or consumption, top shelf or middle tier, liquor or just wine and beer - it can be easy to forget about the champagne! While champagne toasts used to be a top tradition, it's just as easy to cheers with whatever drink is already in your glass.

How do you feel about champagne? Is it a 'need to have' or a 'nice to have'?馃

    Nice to have, although I would prefer a sparkling wine vs true champagne.

    Nice to have. We aren鈥檛 doing it, no one really loved champagne anyways and it would take a huge amount of the budget to do it!

    Nice to have. We are at a vineyard and therefore have to use their wine only. They don't have "champagne" but use a sparkling white as their champagne equivalent for toasts and such.

    Need to have! I love champagne! If we don't end up getting it for all the tables we will at least have some for us to toast with during the speeches and for cake cutting.

    We鈥檙e having a dry wedding so we will likely have old fashioned soda or sparkling cider for the toasts/ speeches!

    Nice to have. Our crowd is mainly beer/liquor drinkers so cutting champagne was an easy decision and will save a little on our budget. People can just toast with whatever they have.

    Nice to have. This was an option at our open bar but, since we skipped toasts, we did not have the servers pass these to guests unless they specifically requested a glass.

    Nice to have. There are other options for a toast if you don't want champagne.

    Nice to have. My family is country so we aren't big on champagne.

    It was important to me to have bubbles available, but we didn鈥檛 do a champagne toast. Rather, just had Prosecco at the bar for those wanting to feel festive !

    Nice to have, but not in the budget! We鈥檙e still doing toasts, but guests can toast with whatever drink they have at hand. We鈥檙e only providing wine and beer (and of course non-alcoholic options).

    Definitely nice to have. We are having it since our venue was having a promotion when we booked, that if we booked by the end of that month, they would throw in the champagne toast for all of our guests at no charge! I really wanted it anyway and we were on the fence about it, especially since we鈥檙e having a six hour open bar, so it鈥檚 nice that we booked when we did so it was included!
