Best Bottles Of Bubbly For Your Wedding

More and more couples are opting to stock their own wedding bars or at least getting involved in selecting what drinks are being offered. If you’re a wine-o you probably already have your go-to red or white picked out, but there’s one drink that you’re going to need a lot of–bubbly! And while you may have a favorite champagne for special occasions, it’s likely out of the price point that you’re looking to spend to stock an entire bar. So, if you’re like us, you just planned on going to the wine store staring aimlessly at row upon row of sparkling wine, and finally just settling for the bottle with the cutest label (no judgment). Well, let us help you out. We did a deep dive into the world of wine ratings and here are 7 of the most accessibly priced bottles of bubbly (all under $50), and they all get stellar ratings so you know they’ll taste great! We’ve even taken the liberty of adding in the pairing notes to make your decision that much easier. So go ahead and pop a bottle while you scroll, you deserve it!
