Champagne

It’s April, and if you haven’t gotten a wedding invitation yet for nuptials happening in 2012, you will soon! Plenty of brides and grooms are forgoing some traditions this year, but one thing stays true: Champagne is a must at receptions.  According to the Champaigne Bureau, 59% of those proposing made sure to have some bubbly on hand, anticipating a great celebration.  And the average wedding now has 148 guests in attendance—all of whom will want to participate in a hearty Champagne toast.  That may be the reason why the average wedding costs close to thirty grand.  But weddings are never a time to pinch pennies.  Congratulations to those tying the knot this year—my daughter included— and be sure to grab some bubbly for those happy moments. Cheers!
