1. Table Side Champagne Bucket:
Give each table an intimate celebration of their own with a table side champagne bucket! You can place the bucket off to the side, at the ‘head’ of each table or place it in the center and even incorporate it into your centerpiece.
Depending on your preference, you can leave the champagne sealed and let your guests have fun popping it open or have it open and ready on ice to pour as they sit down to dinner. Tip: Chill the bottles before dinner and wait till just before dinner to place bottles and ice in the buckets so the ice doesn’t melt before the guests sit down.
2. Champagne Wedding Favors – Mini Bottles:
Mini champagne bottles not only make great wedding favors but they also double as extra champagne for guests to enjoy, especially if chilled before dinner. Place a mini bottle at each place setting directly next to the toasting flute – your guests will figure out the rest 😉
The bottle neck allows you to hang a personalized tag around the bottle or tie it with your ribbon using your wedding colors. You can even create custom bottle labels with your names, wedding date and even a photo of your and your beau!
3. Champagne Escort Cards – Mini Bottles:
There are so many things that make a wedding gorgeous and unique, and one of our favorites is the display of guest escort cards! It’s almost like that beautiful cake you just hate to cut into! This is a great area to incorporate champagne!
A twist on the previous mini bottle wedding favors – instead of placing the mini champagne bottles at the tabes, use them as an escort cards to guide each guest to their seat. You can tie the guest and table information around the bottle neck with a hang tag or use a personalized label around each bottle.
4. Champagne Escort Cards – Flutes:
Another twist on the previous idea – instead of using mini champagne bottles, guide guests to their seat with already poured and ready to enjoy flutes of champagne!
There are several ways to display seating information; use the lip of each flute to hang the information from, tie a tag around the stem, use a sticker … there are so many ways to get creative!
5. Champagne Jello Shots:
Who says jello shots cant be classy? This Champagne Jello Shots recipe from Delish is super easy to make and uses only a few ingredients… most notably, champagne! For a signature look, adorn them with sprinkles to match your wedding theme/colors!
6. Personalized Wedding Party Champagne Gifts:
Your wedding party works extra hard to make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch… or should I say WITH a hitch! 😉 Give your bridesmaids and groomsman a personalized champagne flute – monogrammed or with their names and the wedding date on it. It’s beautiful and best of all, functional! You can even include a bottle of your favorite champagne as part of the gift package!
7. Champagne Soaked Gummy Bears:
These tipsy bears are the perfect cross between classy and fun and if anyone says differently, they’re lying to you! It’s always fun to put a new twist on a old classic – champagne soaked gummy bears do exactly that! Given the wide variety of colors, you can match the bears to your wedding theme or use a white/light pink mix to match the occasion.

8. Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes:
Pair well with … you guessed it, champagne! You can find the recipe for these Strawberry Champagne cupcakes in the video description or you can use your favorite cupcake recipe and add this Pink Champagne Buttercream from Wicked Good Kitchen for a signature champagne treat!
9. Mimosa “a la carte” Cart:
Who says mimosas are just for brunch? That’s to say, a mimosa bar IS great for brunch weddings and at brunch the day after – but if you’re going to be drinking champagne at the reception anyway, why not give your guests some fresh and delicious options? We love the mimosa “a la carte” cart – an actual cart or smaller side table by the bar or desserts – with fresh juices and a selection of pre-cut and beautifully arranged garnishes.
Alternatively, if you’re going with the “Table Side Champagne” idea above, you can use mini carafes and include a trio of your favorite juices for guests to mix table-side as well!
