It's National Bubbly Day! Champagne and celebration go hand in hand, which is why so many couples – regardless of whether alcohol is served at their wedding or not – have some sort of toast at their reception. For many couples, Champagne has been a part of their many relationship milestones, including the proposal, so they may choose to feature the bubbly beverage in more ways than one.
For those pairs, we've created a list of ways to incorporate sparkling wine or Champagne into your wedding besides the toast – from the moment guests arrive to their final send-off. We've seen couples provide flutes of chilled Champagne to guests before the ceremony even begins, offer miniature bottles or flutes attached to escort cards to get the party started earlier, provide a bubbly bar in the ladies' lounge at the reception, and so much more.
For these and the rest of the ideas, take a look at 11 ways to incorporate Champagne into your wedding, below! Find additional inspiration for your celebration by clicking on each photo to see more from these real weddings.
