Champagne ideas for your wedding
Nothing quite says style and celebration like champagne. Just the pop of the cork can often arouse an eruption of ‘cheers’ and gets everyone in the mood to party. Many couples choose to toast their nuptials with champagne and like to share this moment with their guests. However we do not think the fun needs to end there and love the idea of incorporating some champagne fun throughout the day so here are our top 5 champagne ideas for your wedding.
A Champagne Tower
Do you like the idea of champagne playing a focal point to your big day? Then a champagne tower may just be what you are looking for. Using elegant glasses that the bubbly can flow easily down this can look striking but also excite your guests into taking more than a few sips. Use large bottles or magnums and ensure the server at your venue is experienced in the set up.
Cocktails are becoming increasingly popular at weddings and are a great way to express your personality or incorporate your theme. Adding champagne to cocktails is a great touch and will taste delicious. Are you having a winter wedding? Then why not try a spiced apple cider champagne cocktail? For those getting married in some summer sun then a sparkling sangria may be fitting and not to mention a tasty addition to your big day.
There are some fabulous ideas for creating fun at wedding, whether you want people to mingle over a sweet cart or enjoy pulling silly faces in a photo booth however one of our favourites is a bubbly bar. Setting up a table with glasses of champagne and added extras to ‘pimp your drink’ such as fresh strawberries, peaches or even popping candy! This will be a great focal point and will certainly be good fun for your guests.
Have you ever been to a posh foodie festival where they serve bottles of their best from cute trucks? Well why not hire one for your big day? Great for a chic and vintage feel to your wedding. This can make a great attraction at your day and get guests mingling while sipping on the bubbles. Complement this with some aperitifs and you are sure to have some seriously satisfied guests.
Why not create a full champagne inspired theme for your wedding? Champagne shades can make a great colour palette for your wedding from your bridesmaid dresses to balloons. Sparkling backdrops, champagne cork place settings (you will have to ‘force’ yourself to drink many bottles prior to the big day, damn) and mini bottles as favours can be just the thing to add unique touches to the theme of your day.
Whatever champagne inspired tip you choose make sure you taste test whatever your venue or vendor will be serving. We suggested organising a taste test, remember if you won’t drink it, it is unlikely to go down well with your guests. Once you have selected your top tipple you can tick it off your wedding list – we can say cheers to that!
