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. We can't afford to get THAT much for toasts, besides, everyone will have their own preferences as to what they want to drink. We'll have a bottle for my FH and I, and maybe a bottle for our parents/grandparents, but if nothing else, something for the head table.

    A must have on my end. I adore champagne as does most of my family so it will be flowing, but I'm sure people will today with their beverages of choice

    Ummm....a need. Yum-Yum. I am not a drinker but for celebrations the "bubbly" is a must. It makes me feel happy.

    Nice to have. And we are torn. My parents not my FH鈥檇 parents drink. And FIL is the officiant at our wedding. We drink and the guests will be about 60/40 on who consumes alcohol. So we are torn at this point on the champagne.

    Nice to have. especially with an open bar. people generally prefer to drink their bar choice and skip the champagne anyway. put the money towards something else

    Nice to have. We're not providing for multiple reasons, more than just budget reasons

    Nice to have. I know a lot of people don't care for champagne, but I actually really enjoy it. I prefer sparking wine though, to be honest.

    Nice to have but I feel like for the majority of it just gets wasted. Therefore, we will not be having any at our wedding. Our guests can use whatever is in their glass.
