Top 10 Champagnes for Weddings

Planning a wedding can be really exhausting especially when it comes to all the small details but don’t worry – we’ve got your back! Go grab your glitter planner and a glass of bubbly and read on about our top 10 sparkling wines for weddings.

How much should you spend on champagne for weddings?

It depends of course on what budget you’re working with and what your wedding priorities are, but take it from us: the more free bubbly you supply the more fun your guests will have. So our advice to you would be to spend at least 5% of your total budget on sparkling wine (AT LEAST)!

When to pop the bubbly:

What is better than strawberries and bubbly with your girls? Why not have a fun bubbly breakfast in your gowns before the ceremony? (Tip: don’t drink too much because we want you to remember all the details of your beautiful day, plus: sparkling wine can make you sweat – not cute!). Bubbly is a perfect post-ceremony drink and works well with most canapés. Then of course during the speeches – CHEERS! Make sure there is enough sparkling wine on the tables for your guests to enjoy.
