Find the Perfect Bubbly for your Wedding Day

If you’re organising your own bubbly for your wedding venue, it can be a daunting task deciding which one to choose from the thousands available.

Going traditional with Champagne is always a reliable option, but if you’re on a budget or want to try something different, there are plenty of other fantastic sparkling wines to suit your needs.

Cava, Crémant and Prosecco are other options at a lower price. Or why not go for an award-winning English sparkling wine?

Try and taste some for yourself, see which you like best – surely your guests will enjoy it too. Many of these wines also serve as great all-rounders.

For the reception

For the start, it’s best to serve something light and fresh. A Blancs de Blancs Champagne or a Prosecco would work well. If it’s Summer time, you could make a fruity sparkling cocktail by simply adding some fruit juice.

(Prosecco) Prosecco Masottina £11 per bottle

(Champagne) Waitrose Blanc de Blancs Brut NV £22.99 per bottle

(Champagne) Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV  £49.99 per bottle 


For the meal

What you’re going to be eating might alter the style of sparkling wine you choose. Savoury food pairs well with a dry wine (like brut) whereas sweeter food goes better with a sweeter sparkling wine (like sec or demi-sec). If you’re having fish or pasta, you might want to opt for some rosé.
