20 Celebratory Champagne-Themed Wedding Ideas
Champagne toasts are one of the longest standing traditions in wedding history. The celebratory moment brings friends and family together to offer well wishes and kind words to the newlyweds. No matter the lively nature of the reception, everyone stops to reflect on the sole meaning of their gathering: love. This association means that Champagne is so much more than just a bubbly big-day cocktail (although we love it for that reason, too). If you and your spouse-to-be are big fans of the bubbly stuff, you'll be pleased to know that sparkling wine is also aesthetically pleasing and can often serve as inspiration for wedding design elements that extend far beyond the bar.
We know what you're thinking: How could an alcoholic beverage elevate the overall look of a wedding? Surprisingly, this refreshment can be interpreted and represented in so many ways throughout both your celebration's menu and décor. Champagne can be used as a main ingredient in your big-day dessert spread; the drink can also decorate a bar cart or dazzle in the form of a crystal-glass tower. It's all about getting creative and thinking outside the bottle. Take this acrylic serving tray full of mini glasses of frozen Champagne from this EKS Events wedding, for example. It's not just a mini station for pink bubbly—it's also an eye-catching décor element, that was adorned with dried flowers for an added layer of whimsy.
Champagne isn't only a drinkable wedding element. An illustration of a Champagne bottle can dress up stationery suites and seating charts. All of these possibilities (and more!) have wowed guests during real weddings. Once you see the following stand-out Champagne wedding ideas for yourself, you'll never see the sparkling wine as just a popular big-day beverage ever again.
