Champagne fountains can be used to serve champagne, sparkling wine, sparkling cider, soda, punch or other pulp-free beverages at weddings or other events.

Typical costs:

  • Champagne fountain rental costs typically depend on the size, style and material of the fountain and can vary from under $40 to $75 or more per day, plus return shipping costs if it is rented from a non-local vendor. It can cost several hundred dollars with an attendant.
  • For example, Party Place Rental, in Michigan, charges $40 to rent a three-gallon fountain[1] or $75 to rent a seven-gallon fountain. Simply Elegant Weddings, in Texas, charges $50 to rent a five-gallon silver champagne fountain[2] and $75 to rent a seven-gallon silver fountain. SweetFountains.com offers a three-day rental of a five-gallon commercial champagne fountain[3] for $169, and return shipping usually costs an additional $25-$40. Chad's Chocolate Fountains charges $200 for a champagne fountain with an attendant[4] for three hours, not including alcohol.
  • A champagne fountain can cost from $300 to almost $2,000 to buy, depending on the size, features and material. For example, SweetFountains.com charges $300 for a simple one-gallon champagne fountain[5] , or $650 for a three-gallon fountain made of aluminum with gold finish, or almost $1,900 for a five-gallon stainless steel fountain with silver trim.

What should be included:
  • A clean, ready-to-use champagne fountain and instructions should be included. The fountain will need to be plugged in, and the instructions should specify the type of outlet needed.
  • The champagne or sparkling wine must be chilled before being added to the fountain. Champagne fountains will cause the champagne or sparkling wine to go flat after about 10 minutes, so rental companies usually recommend periodically adding more champagne. The fountain must be turned off when empty. It might need to be cleaned before being returned, depending on the rental agreement.
  • For a full-service champagne fountain rental package with attendant, the attendant should show up in formal attire, then set up and run the fountain. The attendant also should clean up any spills and remove the fountain at the appropriate time.
Additional costs:
  • The champagne is not included with a champagne fountain rental. For example, Deligance, a rental and catering company, states that champagne fountain rentals[6] do not include champagne. The amount of champagne needed will depend on the number of guests and the number of glasses allotted per guest.
  • Many champagne fountains include a décor cup on top, which can be filled with flowers, feathers or other decorations. The décor usually is not included with rental. For example, SweetFountains.com's champagne fountain rental page[7] states that the renter can decorate the cup with flowers or their choice of décor.
Discounts:
  • Some chocolate fountain rental companies offer a discounted or free champagne fountain with rental of a full-service chocolate fountain with attendant and chocolate. For example, Chad's Chocolate Fountains offers a free four-hour champagne fountain rental[8] with the purchase of some chocolate fountain rental packages which cost $400-$550.
Shopping for a champagne fountain:
  • Some brides on wedding forums state that champagne fountains can be messy and lead to sticky floors, especially if not properly monitored. A fountain might not be the best choice for a wedding with many guests who are wine aficionados, or for filling with high-end champagne, since the fountain quickly makes the beverage go flat.
  • A wedding caterer should be able to help with fountain rentals. Or, TheKnot.com has a listing of local vendors for party rentals[9] as well as for champagne and liquor[10] .
