Sparkling wine please!

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Sat 29-Oct-16 17:25:21

Sparkling wine, cheaper and nicer imo.

Eevee77 Sat 29-Oct-16 17:25:26

£13 more PP, wine he absolutely!

As a guest I really would not care.

I was going to say whatever is on offer, but we served Lindauer to our wedding guests.

English sparkling wine (from Chapel Down in Tenterden) is really nice but rather expensive.

Waitrose often have offers on bottles of champagne for about £16 a bottle or less.

Prosecco? My local M&S had an offer on Prosecco for £8 a bottle recently.

Sparkling wine for sure

Depends on the sparkling wine really, there's a vineyard near us & the sparkling wine from them is gorgeous & definitely on par with champagne.

Squeegle Sat 29-Oct-16 17:27:22

I think you should go for the sparkling wine, as long as it tastes nice there is no point in spending all that extra

Sparkling wine

Depends on the wine and the champagne.

Sparkling wine, I haven't bought champagne for ages since I discovered prosecco.

DesolateWaist Sat 29-Oct-16 17:30:49

Sparkling wine. Anyone who would bitch about it not being champagne could fuck off.

Laiste Sat 29-Oct-16 17:31:55

I agree it depends on the wine or the champers.

A cheap champagne will taste worse than a half decent sparkling wine. And vice versa really.

Could you do one small flute of champ. each for the guests for toasts and then refills with wine?

Sparkling wine.

Champagne is just sparkling wine from a specific region of France, isn't it?

We had £5 rose cava from Tesco at our wedding, people were taking whole bottles of it home at the end of the night so it can't have been that bad (I quite like it!)

YelloDraw Sat 29-Oct-16 17:32:35

Have you tasted both? Sparkling wind often as nice for lower price.

MrsTerryPratchett Sat 29-Oct-16 17:32:37

You can get lovely, vintage, fancy sparkling wine for the same price as Champagne. For no discernible reason except the name.

Rhythmsticks Sat 29-Oct-16 17:32:54

I think generally you can get a really nice sparkling wine for cheaper than the cheapest champagne. As long as it tastes nice I'm sure your guests won't notice what it is!

Lovelybangers Sat 29-Oct-16 17:33:36

Sparkling wine is fine. I'd choose Cava over Prosecco though.

Where is my invitation ? grin

chipsandpeas Sat 29-Oct-16 17:34:04

sparking wine for me out of the two of them

Piscivorus Sat 29-Oct-16 17:35:43

I prefer Prosecco of the two. I suspect very few guests would even know the difference when served at a wedding

PickAChew Sat 29-Oct-16 17:36:29

Prosecco?

ENormaSnob Sat 29-Oct-16 17:37:22

Neither grin

Red wine only for me thanks!

On behalf on my fizz drinking friends, go with the fizzy wine.

How about Cremant - the Burgundy region version of champagne, but cheaper.
Dd had her big wedding do in Burgundy and that's what we had - lots of it!

GinThief Sat 29-Oct-16 17:44:06

I love you all, I would choose sparkling wine too grin

now I just have to tell mumzilla that she can't have champagne
