Whether you're looking for brut, rosé, vintage or demi-sec champagne, we'll help you find the perfect champagne for your big day.

Planning a wedding and wondering how much champagne to buy? There are many factors to consider when buying champagne for your wedding, including the number of guests, the types of champagne you need to offer and the type of toast to serve. In this article, we'll cover everything you need to consider when choosing the perfect champagne for your special day.

Introduction to champagne for weddings

Champagne is a sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France. It is traditionally used to celebrate special occasions, such as weddings. Although there are many types of sparkling wine, champagne is often the preferred choice for weddings because of its luxurious, sophisticated appearance.

When choosing champagne for your wedding, there are a few things to consider. The first is the number of bottles you need to buy. It's important to buy enough champagne so that all your guests can toast and have enough for the meal and dessert. You'll also need to think about the types of champagne you'll be offering and when you'll be serving them.

How many bottles of champagne should you buy for a wedding?

When it comes tobuying champagne for your wedding, there are a few factors to consider. The first is the size of your guest list. As a general rule, it's advisable to have one bottle of champagne for every four to six guests. You may need to adjust this figure depending on the size of your wedding, but it's a good rule of thumb.

In addition to the size of your guest list, you'll also need to consider how many glasses of champagne will be served to each person. As a rule of thumb, one bottle of champagne yields six glasses of champagne. So, if you have a guest list of 120 people, you'll need at least 20 bottles of champagne to make sure everyone gets a glass.

You should also bear in mind that some of your guests may not drink champagne. This means you may not need as many bottles as you think. If your guest list consists mainly of non-drinkers, you can adjust the number of bottles accordingly.

How many glasses of champagne in a bottle?

When it comes to buying champagne for your wedding, it's important to know how many glasses of champagne a bottle contains. As a general rule, a standard bottle of champagne contains six glasses. However, it's important to note that this varies according to the type of bottle you're buying.

For example, a magnum champagne bottle contains 12 glasses of champagne. If you buy a larger bottle, such as a Methuselah, you'll get 48 glasses. By knowing the size of the bottle you're buying, you can determine how many glasses of champagne it will produce and how many bottles you'll need to buy for your wedding.

Among the most common sizes, here's how many glasses you'll be able to offer your guests:

- The quarter-bottle of champagne (20 cl) > 1 to 2 glasses,
- The half-bottle (37.5 cl) > 3 glasses,
- The classic bottle size (75 cl) > 6 glasses,
- The Magnum (150 cl) > 12 glasses,
- The Jeroboam (3 liters ) > 24 glasses.
- The Methuselah (6 liters) > 48 glasses.

How many bottles of champagne for the vin d'honneur?

The vin d'honneur is a traditional French toast served at the start of a wedding reception. It usually consists of a glass of champagne for each guest, followed by a toast from the bride and groom. Depending on the size of your wedding, you may need to purchase additional bottles of champagne for the vin d'honneur.

As a general rule, you should allow one bottle of champagne for every four to five guests. This means that if you have 120 guests, you should plan to buy at least 24 bottles of champagne for the vin d'honneur.

It's important to note that you may need to adjust this number depending on the size of your wedding and the type of champagne you're buying. For example, if you buy a magnum bottle, you'll need fewer bottles to serve the same number of guests.

How many bottles of champagne for the meal and dessert?

As well as buying champagne for the vin d'honneur, you'll also need to buy champagne for the meal and dessert. As a rule of thumb, you should plan on one bottle of champagne for every five to six guests. This means that if you have 120 guests, you should plan to buy at least 20 bottles of champagne for the meal and dessert.

It's important to note that you may need to adjust this figure depending on the size of your wedding and the type of champagne you're buying. For example, if you buy a magnum bottle, you'll need fewer bottles to serve the same number of guests.

How many bottles of champagne are in a crate?

When buying champagne for your wedding, you may be wondering how many bottles there are in a case. As a general rule, a standard case contains 6 bottles of champagne. This means that if you're planning to buy a case of champagne for your wedding, you need to plan for at least 36 glasses of champagne for your guests.

It's important to note that this number may vary depending on the type of champagne you're buying. For example, if you buy a magnum bottle, you'll need fewer bottles to serve the same number of guests.

What type of champagne to offer and when?

When choosing champagne for your wedding, it's important to consider the type of champagne you'll be offering and when you'll be serving it. In general, it's a good idea to offer a variety of champagnes, including Brut, Rosé and Vintage.

It's also important to consider when you'll be serving the champagne. In general, it's a good idea to serve the Brut during the vin d'honneur, and the Rosé and Vintage during the meal and dessert. This will give your guests a variety of champagnes to enjoy throughout the evening.

Which champagne to serve at the vin d'honneur

For the vin d'honneur, choose a brut champagne, i.e. one that's not too sweet, so as not to spoil your guests' appetite. Brut rosé champagnes are also an excellent option for this occasion [2]. Be sure to serve champagne with appetizers, seafood and cheeses such as Brie or goat's cheese for optimal enjoyment.

Which champagne to choose for the meal?

The choice of champagne during a meal depends on the type of dish served. For heavy dishes, opt for a Blanc de Blancs or Blanc de Noirs champagne. If you're serving exceptional dishes, a vintage champagne is recommended. Be sure to talk to your caterer to find the champagne that best suits your menu.

Which champagne to serve with dessert?

The choice of champagne for dessert also depends on the type of dessert served. For soft cheeses, a brut champagne is recommended. For almond-based desserts, a Blanc de Blancs champagne is ideal. If you're serving chocolate or creamy desserts, opt for a vintage or demi-sec champagne.

Who gives a toast at a wedding?

In most weddings, the bride and groom make a toast at the start of the reception. This toast is known as the vin d'honneur and is usually followed by a toast from the couple's parents. It's important to note that you may need to adjust this number depending on the size of your wedding and the type of toast you wish to make.

How much champagne do you need for a toast?

When choosing champagne for your wedding toast, it's important to consider how much champagne you'll need. As a general rule, it's best to plan on one bottle of champagne for every four to six guests. This means that if you have 120 guests, you should plan to buy at least 20 bottles of champagne for the toast.

It's important to note that this number may vary depending on the type of champagne you buy. For example, if you buy a magnum bottle, you'll need fewer bottles to serve the same number of guests.

Wedding glass throwing

In some cultures, it is traditional for the bride and groom to break a glass at the end of their wedding toast. This gesture is known as "throwing the wedding glass" and is meant to symbolize the breaking of the couple's bond. As a general rule, it's a good idea to have a bottle of champagne on hand for this tradition.

How to find the right champagne for your wedding?

When it comes to finding the perfect champagne for your wedding, it's important to do your research. You need to consider the type of champagne you'll be serving, the number of bottles you'll need and the type of toast you'd like to make.

A good champagne for a wedding should be of high quality, memorable and go perfectly with the menu and your guests' preferences. Champagne houses such as Taittinger, Roederer, Ruinart, Laurent-Perrier, Billecart-Salmon and Deutz are popular choices, but can be expensive. An interesting alternative is to opt for "grower" champagnes produced by independent producers such as Péhu Simonet, Rutat, which offer good quality at a more affordable price

It's also important to consider your budget. Champagne prices can range from very affordable to very expensive, so it's important to find a champagne that fits your budget. A good starting point is to visit online Champagne sales sites.
