We are doing a champagne toast but we don't usually drink it or know champagnes. For those that know about this, what would be horrible to serve and what would be like a couple ranks higher than cheap horrible champagne but not $30 a bottle. I just don't want us to find out we got horrible champagne but I budgeted $100 for 5 bottles.

    Zonin Prosecco is light & delicious! Only $6.99 per bottle at Trader Joe’s, maybe $9.99 at other stores?

    Chandon Brut Classic is a good sparkling wine from Napa, about $10-$15 per bottle depending on where you buy it.

    Sorry for all my spelling errors, the correct message didn't get posted!! I wouldn't waste money on champagne or whatever bubbles you decide on if it isn't your thing. Just save the money and people can toast with whatever they are drinking. Maybe a special bottle for you and your husband Smiley smile

    We want to and it's included in venue, serving the toasts & the crystal, we just don't want to buy $30-$50 bottles but we don't want to accidentally get too cheap either.there are guests that like champagne, and we don't mind it, but it's not our drink of choice for the night.

    Moët & Chandon, is good. more affordable, and just as good sparkling wines are cava and prosecco. Freixenet is also a good brand.
    i would not get any Barefoot, nor korbel, and absolutely not cooks.

    Also, if the expense is too much guests can toasts with the drinks they have in hand.

    I will admit I’m no connoisseur of champagne, but to me it all tastes pretty much the same. The most expensive I ever had was just $100 and it tasted no better to me than ones for $5.

    I like the cupcake brand! Totally affordable! Brut is a good staple, they have lots of options at different price points though!

    We’re doing two “sparkling wines” for the toasts/ mimosa bar. One is J. Roget and the other is a raspberry sparkltini by verdi both are about $12-$14 for the great big bottles. We’re not huge on champagne or sparkling wine, but FH and I both really liked those. The lady at the state store told me sometimes the cheaper ones are the best ones.

    If you don’t want it, just do toasts with other drinks. Honestly most people don’t know champagne...and many won’t drink it, or just have a sip, so just get what’s affordable. Even another sparkling wine like cava brut or prosecco.

    I would recommend something crisp and dry for a wedding toast.

    I can't afford to serve the stuff I like either (I most certainly do have expensive taste in champagne) but we are going to serve Henkell Trocken. It's drinkable even if you prefer a better sparkling wine, and it's about $8-$10 a bottle depending on where you get it.

    We got our champagne/prosecco bottles from Costco and each bottle was like less than $10. We got it for each guest table and for us.

    Moet & Chandon, IS deelish but isn't it $35/bottle? Looks like her budget is $20/bottle. I agree proseccos and cavas are great--lighter than champagne and yummy (Zonin is one of my favs under $10 and it beats some $15 bottles of champagne). Nas is right, avoid Barefoot, Korbel and Cooks.

    If you guys aren't drinkers, what about having a sparking lemonade in champagne flutes? Still fancy but a sparkling lemonade (or pink lemonade if any of your colors are pink) would be sweet tribute to the traditional champagne. My only concern is for people who like a alcohol, they may appreciate a glass of the real stuff.

    Are you doing champagne for everyone at the wedding? Sparkling wine tends to run cheaper than true champagne, and most people like it a lot more as well! Maybe think about doing a tasting at a grocery store or winery so that you can be sure that you like it as well. I am personally a big fan of Prosecco, and you can definitely find a decent bottle for less than $20.

    (My personal favorite is Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco)
