More and more couples are opting to forego pricey bubbly and serve wallet-friendly alternatives like Prosecco, Crémant or Cava. Others are skipping the toast completely.
Come to think of it, I can't remember a time when I raised my glass for a toast and then finished the entire glass. A sip or two was enough for me. In a time when stretching every dollar is a mandate, is this something that will become a lost tradition? Toasting the bride and groom in good spirits will always remain, but besides a great photo-op, is there really a difference between toasting with a glass of champagne and toasting with a glass of regular old white wine or a gin and tonic?
Jon and I decided that this is an area where we could save money. Since we know some people might enjoy a glass of champagne during the evening, it will be offered at the bar upon request.
