It’s the end of April, and if you haven’t gotten a wedding invitation yet for nuptials happening in 2013, just wait – it’s only a matter of time! 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 Champagne 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, and be sure to grab some real French Champagne for those happy moments. Cheers!
