When deciding on the type of champagne you will serve, the cost is something to consider as well. As weddings can tend to get rather expensive, make sure the cost of your beverages are controlled and within your budget. This way whatever you save in expenses can be allocated to other items needed for your wedding. Maximize your budget.
3. Design and Theme.
Ensure that the choice of beverage can be incorporated into your theme and design. If you have a classic wedding and reception then champagne should certainly be considered.

4. Guaranteed Service.
Inform your catering staff of the champagne you want served and when. Making sure that this is completely clear so that changes won’t be made without your acknowledgment.
