It's time to pop the bubbly! 馃嵕 If you have it! 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...

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 I guess, I don鈥檛 even like Champagne. I鈥檇 rather have a non-sparkling dessert wine like Riesling or Moscato.

    Nice to have. Our venue doesn鈥檛 allow outside alcohol so I鈥檝e already ditched the whole champagne toast. But our coordinator is nice enough to give us a wine that photographs well in place for when we do toast.

    Nice to have. We haven鈥檛 decided if we are going to toast with champagne, toast with another beverage, or just skip it altogether. I鈥檒l have some for anyone getting ready with me though.

    Nice to have. My FH and I are both sober, as are about half of our guests, so we will actually have sparkling juice and wine for those who do drink.

    Nice to have but not necessary. We opted to have a tasty sparkling white (Cava) as an option at our bar but not pre poured for the toast

    Nice to have. We're stocking our own bar and the champagne alone was going to cost us the same as alllllll of the wine and beer we're purchasing on top of it. Skipping it!

    It is a need for me. I just find a champagne toast so romantic! I mean, it doesn't have to be champagne. But it has to be bubbly and served in flutes.

    Nice to have. We have an open bar at our wedding and champagne is sold by the case for extra.

    Nice to have! At our reception venue, we are unsure if we can have alcohol, so toasting with whatever the drink may be, will be fine!
