How Much Does a Champagne Toast Cost?

post E-mail post Post  

The cost of a champagne toast is made up of three items -- rental of flutes, pouring and service, and sparkling wine or champagne. The champagne price and number of guests are the biggest influences on cost. Flute rental can range from about 50 cents each for glass to $1.00 each for fancy crystal.

Typical costs:

  • On the low end, a champagne toast with a $5 per bottle California sparkling wine and basic flutes might cost $1.50 per person. For those on a budget, Cook's is a common choice.
  • In the mid-range, a toast with a $14 per bottle Spanish cava might cost $3 per person. In this price range, Montsarra Cava Brut[1] has received good reviews.
  • And, on the high end, a toast with $40-plus champagne from France in crystal flutes might cost $7 or more per person. In this price range, Veuve Clicquot NV Brut Yellow Label[2] is a popular choice.

What should be included:
  • The caterer will rent the flutes, purchase the champagne, chill it and deliver it to the reception site. Catering staff will uncork, pour and serve it.
Additional costs:
  • Some caterers charge a corking fee of $1 or more for each bottle of champagne or wine they open, so ask about this ahead of time.
Discounts:
  • Ask catering staff to fill each glass only partway to squeeze ten glasses from each bottle instead of seven. Many guests only take a sip, anyway, and this prevents champagne from going to waste.
  • Give the caterer some leeway to purchase the champagne by the case or to buy a decent brand that is on special to save money. Or see if the caterer will allow you to purchase it yourself.
