I adore champagne. This is apparent by:
- My bachelorette party included a few bottles as well as going to Pops for Champagne.
- My fridge currently contains six bottles.
- My last minute addition to our wedding was champagne.
Before I continue, I’d like to vent. I am extremely frustated that numerous caterers and venues charge exorbinant rates for champagne. I’ve seen vendors charge brides $8 per person for a glass of mediocre champagne for tasting.
I am utterly frustrated that vendors make it near impossible to serve quality champagne. When I told one of my Italian friends my wish to have champagne to be available all evening, she was shocked at the exorbiant rates.
Back to my story…
I called my hotel coordinator to find out the cost of champagne through out the night. Denton and I researched different bottles of champagne. We asked them to consider:
- Gruet Brut Blanc de Blancs
- Veuve Clicquot
- Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee
- Rebuli Prosecco
In the end, we opted to serve Iron Horse. The name alone, Wedding Cuvee, is perfect along with the fact that we had a bottle when we celebrated our one year dating anniversary. (It was a sign of things to come!)
