When it comes to celebrating on your wedding day, there’s nothing more glamorous or festive as champagne! And while signature cocktails and local craft brews can be fun, there’s something about champagne that calls for a celebration. Of course, a wedding being one of the greatest celebrations of all!

However, you can indulge in an Italian Prosecco, a Spanish cava, or any American carbonated wine and it can taste very similar, for a fraction of the cost.bubbly.
Some of you might be concerned in impressing your guests with top notch brands such as Dom Perignon or Veuve Clicquot- false. Your guests are there to celebrate you and will happily sip on a $10 bottle if that is what you enjoy.
