Champagne is the official celebration drink!! 馃嵕 Is a champagne toast an integral part of your party plans?? Or are you skipping the champs and having your guests toast with whatever is already in their glass?


Do you think a champagne toast is necessary or not? 馃

    Not necessary for us. A lot of people around here don't really like champagne anyways and as expensive as it is, I'm not eager to waste that much money. We'd much rather everyone toast with their own drink of choice!

    A toast is necessary, a champagne toast is not.

    We鈥檒l do a toast, but no champagne. I see no point in spending the extra money on specialty booze and champagne flutes.

    I agreed- a toast is necessary but doesn't have to be champagne. I like prosecco better so we will be using that.

    A champagne toast is included in our package, but if it were not then we would pass.

    Not necessary. We won't be buying champagne for toasts. People can just toast with whatever they have in their glasses.

    Not necessary. We are going to have toasts but everyone can toast with what they have in front of them.

    Not necessary. We are having toasts but not champagne toasts. Some of our guests don't even drink.

    Champagne is not necessary. What about sober people? Also, some people are allergic to grapes or just don't like champagne. I also don't think that toasts are necessary. I don't think anything is really necessary. For me, I'm the biggest introvert with social anxiety. Making a toast is my worst nightmare, and having other people make toasts in my honor sounds like something that I'd simply just walk out of the room for because it makes me so uncomfortable. All of the wedding things make me uncomfortable.

    Champagne, no. Our fave sparkling wine from the Finger Lakes? Yes!

    My FH and I are not big on champagne so we're having our toasts done with whatever our guests have in their glasses.

    Not necessary, people can toast whatever they'd like. But it comes with our venue so...bottoms up.

    My parents pushed for this. It鈥檚 tradition and really important to them so we are doing it. I say it is a necessity

    Because we have an open bar, and will have red and white wines available, we decided to opt out of champange and have everyone toast with what they chose to drink!
