We are fast approaching at least two major holidays where champagne could make an appearance. We think you should use this as your opportunity to test out some bubbly options for your wedding reception toast. The hard working staff at Brides Magazine have given their all for you and ranked their top four sparkling wines in their latest issue. If you have made arrangements with your caterer to provide the libation for the auspicious toast, then you might want to ask if you can have one of these as your go-to selection. If you are bringing champagne separate from your caterer, try these out first. Bring one or two for your holiday dinner and then the other two for your New Year’s Eve celebration toast. This way, you have enjoyed your evening and been bridal efficient all at the same time.
If you’re feeling extra adventurous, do a blind taste test with these four different bottles and one you had already selected to see if you would still keep your original selection. Invite a favorite couple or a couple of bridesmaids and make a casual evening of it. Either way, you’ll get to mark something off your “To Do” list and get to try some amazing bubbly.
