We are expecting approx. 200 guests at our wedding reception, and were wondering how many bottles of champagne to buy for the wedding toast. (just the toast). Any thoughts are appreciated.

    It depends if you are doing full glasses or half glasses (a lot of reception venues just give out half glasses so maybe check with them first). If you’re allowing for full glasses, I’d say around 50 bottles as there’s usually 4 glasses per bottle.

    If doing half glasses get around 25 bottles (that’s 8 half glasses per bottle).

    It is always good to have a couple of spare bottles just in case- or a couple of bottles of a non-alcoholic option (e.g. sparkling grape juice) for those that don’t/can’t drink.

    Well for valentines day this past year we got around 4 full glasses out of our bottle, so I would do a minimum of 50, but you would want extras. I would put a maximum at around 100 bottles. If you want just one glass per person I would buy 60 bottles if it was me, that way you should have plenty of extras, think about dropping bottles, plus I am sure everyone there won’t be drinking so….

    It really depends on your glasses.. I cannot stress that enough. I usually get about 6-8 servings of champagne from a bottle, with my flutes which I consider a "normal" size. The flute should be filled more than half, not more than 2/3 full.. again this will depend on the shape of the flute. My suggestion: get ahold of the flutes you will be using and measure it out (you can just use water). But generally I estimate about 6 glasses/bottle.

    If you have 10-12 people on each table, I’d say 1 bottle per table. Remember, they’re not going to fill the glass all the way up.

    About 13 bottles for a 1/2 glass toast. You can pour approximately 8 1/2 glasses with each bottle of champagne.

    There are six glasses in a standard Champagne bottle, so 40 would be okay but only one glass is a bit mean!
