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

    Neither. Not everyone drinks champagne. It's better to have a toast to something they can choose themselves at the bar. (my opinion)

    Nice to have. I am not a huge fan and FH doesn't drink. The only reason we are having a champagne toast is because it comes with the catering/venue package we chose. And I will behaving my fav wine to toast with. Smiley smile

    No not needed and a waist of money.

    Nice to have. We actually chose not too since neither one of us are fans of champagne. We are having a harvest apple cider cocktail and apple ale. There is also a bar available for those that want something different.

    Need to have! No toast without champagne and no early mimosas to cheer with your girls without it either.
